Does a non-gamer need 1GB of video memory?

| No Comments

2009 is hopefully going to be a major year.

I hope that I'll be able to undo the damage done to my health from 2008's double combo of the back damage and the knee damage, I hope to get major work down on the rest of the House of Love, and I hope to work towards finding a new job back in publishing.

Leaving publishing after 12 years was a necessity but was also a huge mistake for me.

I miss dealing with design and graphics problems and I miss helping people.

Sure... I've only been out of the business so to speak since May 2007 but beyond the occasional minor super basic design thing here and there I've pretty much been out of the loop on tech.

I decided to drop the scratch down on a new PC the other day. I've been eyeing this for several months and they ended up putting a display model out for a price I wanted to pay.

So my future PC will be pretty nice:

Intel Core 2Quad Processor Q6700 (2.66Ghz)
8GB DDR2/800 memory
1TB RAID 0 - (2 x 500GB SATA HDDs) 7,200 RPM
20x Dual Layer DVD+/RW DL
1GB GeForce 9600GT PCIe

I'll be stuck using 64 Bit Vista Business for now but I may downgrade to XP instead. The only benefit of the 64 Bit Vista would be to take advantage of the full 8 GB of memory.

I'm upgrading this to take full advantage of the new Adobe Master Collection I'm ordering.

I'm way behind on my versions and have a lot of catching up to do with the whole CS4 suite of apps. Unfortunately, I've finally got to put my beloved FreeHand to rest and accept Illustrator. *sigh*

I wish Adobe Lightroom was included. You'd think it would be but alas, it is not.

I wish Aperature ran on Windows but I'm not going to go back to the Mac platform. Hell... I may even finally play around with learning more Linux shit.

Why am I writing about this here?

Oh. Yeah.

I'm bored and waiting on a meeting to start.
