Some Helpful Advice????
1

Hi, I'm a 73 year old ex pro shooter, transitioning to enthusiast. I've been working on an 11 year old Phantom NXTZ machine. The case fans have given out, and being way past it's expected lifetime, I've concluded, it's not worth the effort/money to try to keep it going.

I know that everyone here, has had good experiences with Puget Systems and Digital Storm, and I'm interested in going that route. I'm just not sure how to wrap my 73 year old, dementia-wracked brain around, just how to proceed.

I think I've heard better things about Puget. I do some fairly complex editing with many multiple layers in Photoshop. So it's memory intensive requirements. My present machine has only 64 Gigs of C drive. Yeah, I know it's a joke. I probably need at least 4 times that, minimum And I have to nurse it along. The data drive is 1 TB, and I'd probably need at least double that!

I'm looking for a reliable, fast and Photoshop capable rig with very quiet fans ( my present machine is sounding like a model T Ford!!! )

Any help in guiding this "crusty curmudgeon" would be helpful.. Thanks a million
