Re: What computer to easily process D800 files?

I have a nice laptop with I7.  When I upgraded my monitor to a 27" and 2560x1440, LR and PS editing slowed to a crawl.  The built-in nVidia card could do the resolution but it was unusable really.  I looked into everything to fix it.  I needed a larger HD so I upgraded that and reinstalled the OS and LR.  Same problem.

I bought a newer Dell desktop xps8500 with an upgraded video card.  Took care of the problem nicely.  Editing is very fast now.  The new desktop was about $700.  Well worth the it even though it feels kind of dated to buy a desktop/tower these days.  Works though.
