Help me decide on a Desktop PC....
Need some help.
I'm a photographer and sometimes do some video editing as well. I'm looking to purchase a new PC thats going to last me quite a few years (Im running a Core 2 Quad 2.3ghz w/ 8Gb ram).
Most of what I'm seeing is the i7-6700 (3.4ghz) coupled with 16Gb of DDR4 ram around the $700 mark (costco, dell / dell outlet, etc). (ie. the Dell XPS 8900)
Other option is the i7-4790 (4.0ghz) with 16gb of DDR3 for roughly the same price, maybe a bit cheaper (costco has a lenovo for $600). (ie Dell XPS 8700, Lenovo H50, Optiplex 7020 etc)
No gaming, so don't really care about that side of it. So i don't think video card will really matter much if at all.
What would you all suggest?
My plan is to bump it to 32Gb of Ram (which is roughly $70-80 for either one) and drop in an SSD.
Is it worth it to save the $100 on the older processor and RAM technology, or spend the extra so it's more "current" and not outdated (which I think can also be expanded to 64Gb RAM, not that I think I'll need it. lol).
