Optimising HP XW4600 PC for post-processing duties
I'm on a fairly tight budget but wanted something faster than my old PC as I can't stand the delays in processing larger picture files.
I got an HP XW4600 off Ebay recently for a very good price. It's got a 2.66 gHz Quad core CPU, 4 gig of RAM (2x2), and a Quadro NVS290 graphics card.
My question is should I upgrade that graphics card, double the RAM (I'm not sure yet if it is running W7 32 or 64 bit), or try and do both? The NVS290 has 256 meg of RAM and dual display. Can anybody with one of these workstations recommend a better card for post processing work?
