    Posted: 06 Sep 2011 at 2:51pm
Hi Guys

So not too long ago I asked for advice about building myself a rig, and it's been quite great! Now it's time to get my business partner a rig. He does web designing, photoshop, illustrator, blah blah. I was thinking of going with one of these:

I know his office gets hot at times so it'd be good to have a water cooled CPU to help make sure things stay cool. Any advice?

I've got the config here: 594217

All I've changed really is added ram, up'd the power supply, water cool, and took out the extra drive that he doesnt want. What we don't know is the video card, is the 600 OK or should we go higher?

We're updating our workstation line within 2 weeks. You might want to hold on until then. Big%20Smile

As Alex said wait for the updates.

also not sure how hot the office gets but if its 80f or over, lc can't help you there much, both lc and air use fans to cool things down, fans blowing hot air on radiator are not going to help cool temps down in a lc system.

Sweet thanks!

Is there anywhere that hints at what the new line will look like? IE will it be significantly better specs for same price, or just new options? I'd like to get him on a real rig ASAP but we want this to work out long term as well.

There might be new stuff we don't know and they don't normally tell us till its out, but I tell you what, if Alex said wait, I would wait, and anticipate some new stuff.

New chassis, better selection of hardware, better prices on the higher-end items just to name a few. Cool

OK great thanks! After my last purchase I'll never buy a computer elsewhere again...  So I'm super excited to be able to go through the process again. Nothing like getting those emails about the different steps it's going through!

Hi

Any update on when the line is expected to be updated (or is it already?) Our designer's PC is dieing and can't open photoshop anymore. Not good for productivity lol

I don't think so, but I'm just going by what I see.
