  • Pretty expensive option to buy two 1TB HDD's, much better off buying a 2TB drive for far less, lower noise, lower cost, same storage. If you want fast performance you want a SSD rather than a...
  • For a $1000 budget for photography, here's my recommendation: Build it yourself, but if that's really not an option, then go to a local computer store and spec out the system you want, if you're...
  • Personally I prefer windows over mac, and android over iOS, but that's more of an OS preference than a critical feature delta. 12GB is an odd size, because in a desktop PC you'll typically have...
  • I'm told Intel's Processor graphics can do 10bit, while not suited to gaming at 4K, you might find that for Photoshop you don't actually need a graphics card at all. I would try it out using the...
  • Windows 8.1 is the best OS from MS yet, well, the kernel at least. However, the interface is awful, worse than even Vista. But there's a solution: with Windows 8.1 plus "Start8" from...
  • Replied in 4.4x faster
    You will get a maximum of 33MB/s transfer from USB 2.0 after protocol overhead. I get 145MB/s from my Lexar 1000x CF card on a Sandisk USB 3.0 reader, so that's 4.4x faster. Roland.

  • Replied in Intel or Samsung
    Intel, or Samsung. All others are significantly less reliable. I have used about 40 Intel SSD's, I have 18 currently in use at home. I have another 11 at work, never once a failure. I have used one...
  • Replied in Fix live view
    Faster FPS, 6 perhaps Faster DX FPS, 8 perhaps Fix live view so it doesn't just display every other pixel and get blurry Better video quality Better video focus ability 1080/60 and 4K/30
  • Something is not right, your battery should not go flat like that. The green light indicates some form of actvity (beyond just writing to the memory cards). My green light flashes on an off (but...
  • I have the same monitor. I'm curious about your purpose for the calibration slots, take a huge step back and explain from the basic beginning, what you're doing, and why, please. I understand using...
  • Each of the color gamuts are color triangles with the three points in each of the three primaries (RGB). sRGB is the smallest, a monitor that is 100% sRGB is only about 72% of AdobeRGB. Rec709 is...
  • Are you really sure you're getting duplicates of all your email? Or is it duplicate of only say the last month or some specific time period? When you use Outlook to download your mail there is an...
  • To calculate the speed from your CPU or PCH bus to a plugin PCIe card you simply multiply the number of lanes 1,4,8,16 by the speed of each lane. The speed is typically labeled as Gen1, Gen2,...

  • RAID is supported on any of the Intel desktop chipsets that end in a 7, 8, or 9.   Q87, H87, Z87 for the most recent round of chipsets that support 4th Gen Core. Q77, H77, Z77 for 3rd Gen Ivy...
  • Both 3rd and 4th Gen Core desktop processors support memory by default up to 1600Mhz. Now, if you put memory in the system that's only rated for 1333Mhz, unless you buy a Z-SKU chipset, i.e. Z77 or...
  • Yes, you would be limited to 4 sticks of 8GB DDR3-1600Mhz memory. I would strongly recommend you get 1600Mhz memory, the Dell BIOS should absolutely be able to use it, I don't know why someone else...
  • The Dell tower you mention is probably the better bet. Core i7 4770 is a great processor for photo editing, and a bit of video editing. You'll ideally want 16GB memory. Ideal for photo editing...
