I love to shoot pictures, but my computer make me hating on processing. So I have tons of pictures to process, but no time to do so. I know I dont have the right tools tho; I guess a Core2Duo 2.2ghz with 4gb ram laptop wasnt made for picture processing after all. Besides, I was at the point where I needed to calibrate my lcd every month or so, and still get the neck pain that goes with "working too much on a laptop".
With the growing size of my catalog, it became ridiculous; waiting 30 seconds to 1 minute everytime I zoomed in or applied a setting to a picture. I was taking me twice to 3 times the time needed to process then to actually shoot.
Here comes the rookie:
I7 CPU @ 3.5ghz
16gb of 1600mhz ram
2 X 3TB hd in raid 1
GTX560 1gb dual dvi @ 850mhz
Dell 2412M LCD
Cant wait to see the processing times with this beast!
