Did you upgrade computer to handle D800 files?
Aug 21, 2012

I am curious how many D800/D800E owners found it necessary to upgrade their computers in order to process the large files from this camera.

My current deskstop computer (AMD quad-core with 4gb RAM) handles D700 files just fine (View NX, Capture NX, Photoshop CS4). But I see a definite slow down with D7000 files. The slowdown is not enough to warrant a computer change. But I am quite certain the D800 files would bring my computer to it knees.

Your thoughts on a minimum configuration to handle D800 files well....
