Could somebody post some hardware suggestions for how to make a desktop system that will run builds lightning fast? I am working on a big thick client project and the build is A) Out of my control and B) Annoyingly slow.
What matters most? Memory? How much? HD spin speeds/throughput? Processor clock speed? # of cores?
I was thinking about a Mac Pro. But also thinking of building my own...
Memory: 2Gb at least CPU: 2Ghz at least HD: 200Gb SATA 7200rpm or faster Bus: 800Mhz or better Video: Supporting 1600x1200 in 32bit color Monitor: Flat LCD wide 22" or better Network card: 1Gbit DVD/CD writer, WiFi 802G compatible
You can fit it in your budget easily as previous post said.
