  • Honestly, Jim, you're probably right that the most prudent thing would be to wait for details on the new card to come out. Most of the reason I want to go for the 970, however, is because as I ...
  • Thanks, guys, for the further info. I actually came to a bit of a different conclusion after thinking about things some more. After doing a bit of a price analysis and using that to predict what ...
  • Just to provide a few more details that I gather from my own research, for the benefit of others: AMD generally does a better job at OpenCL. Nvidia generally does a better job at OpenGL. Nvidia has ...
  • Yeah. I've just been researching this whole issue, and the conclusion I'm reaching agrees totally with what Jim was saying. Namely, my best bet is to either go for an AMD card (e.g. R9 280X), or ...
  • Thanks, ADMint. As I mentioned, I'm specifically looking for advice (probably from Jim) as to whether having 4GB in the form of the GTX 760 (which comes in both 2GB and 4GB forms) would outweigh ...
  • I guess what I'm getting at is, would I be better off with a 4GB GTX 760 or a 2GB GTX 960, given that my main concerns are PS work, a little bit of video editing, and generally running at least 2 ...
  • Wow... thanks for the additional info, everyone! Re: the video card, I actually placed an order for the GTX 760 4GB card (before seeing the latest posts here) which was on sale for boxing day. ...
  • Thanks, everyone, for your terrific input. I really appreciate it. I think I've decided to go for the system I was originally leaning towards, namely the i7 4790k with 32 GB of RAM and a new ...
  • Thanks, Scott. I just checked the memory, and good call. It was set at 70% (not as bad as 50%, but not great either). Hopefully that'll help a bit. But I feel like having a good amount more memory ...
  • Thanks for the suggestions. I have definitely thought about this option, but the more I think about it, the more I'm deciding against it. It will add probably $300-$500 more to the cost, relative ...
  • Thanks a lot for the detailed info... really helpful (and encouraging, since it matches my plan, more or less :)). BTW, I assume you mean i7 4790 (not 4970)? Games are not a priority for me, for ...
  • My scratch disks are on a Caviar Black drive. I've been thinking about moving them to one of my SSDs; but I hear a lot of people - and this is true of my own experimentation - don't think that ...
  • Thanks! Some useful resources in there.
  • Thanks for the info, Pictus. Sounds encouraging!
  • Thanks for the info, Larry. Can you elaborate on what you mean when you say having 32 GB or RAM will lower the OC? I hadn't heard that one before. So are you saying that PS and LR benefit from ...
  • Thanks a lot for the detailed response, Jim... really appreciate you sharing your thoughts. Your idea of switching out half of my existing RAM for a total of 18 GB is a good one; but I'm not sure ...
  • I know the image size seems excessively large, but... I'm the type that likes to work in 16-bit and maintain every single change I make, since I tend to change my mind and tweak previous ...
  • Created discussions Advice on computer upgrade
    Hi everyone, and merry Christmas! I've recently changed from a Canon 7D to a Nikon D810, and those 36 mp are putting quite a bit of strain on my computer! In terms of the type of load I put on the ...
  • Thanks for all the feedback. Sorry for the delay in responding - for some reason, I wasn't being notified that people were responding here. For what it's worth, my hardware specs are as follows: In ...
