Redbaron Posted May 9, 2013 Author Report Share Posted May 9, 2013 After doing the rounds, narrowed it down a bit - thinking along these lines Option 1 i7 3770 z77 chip RAM - 8 GB DDR3 upgraded to 16 GB (1333 Mhz - may be upgradable to 1600 if necessary - forgot to ask) 2TB HDD Hitachi 7200rpm SSD - 60GB - would 120 be overkill? 2GB Radeon 7750 Video Card (GDDR5) Keyboard, Win 8, card reader, wifi etc.. around $1300 Option 2 (may be cheaper) i5 3570 H77 chip 8GB DDR3 RAM 1600 2TB HDD 7200 rpm 2GB 7750 Video Card (as above) Keyboard etc $829 - but would have to ask about other upgrades ie Windows ($100), SSD, extra RAM if necessary. I'd guess it would bring me just over the $1000 mark. ... thanks again for advice. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
