As you can tell from the title, my computer is dying. This is not a new problem. I tried to prolong its life by installing SSDs and adding more RAM during the last summer holiday and that has helped and worked for a while. But now, after getting error messages, blue screens (2 in 1,5 months time and before that never), graphics card problems (getting way too hot, 80c idle), I need a new computer. It's hitting its 7 year mark soon so it's also time I think.
But the problem is, I do not know where to start. Do I need to get a Mac, maybe a workstation or even a game pc and maybe even build one? Nowadays it is really hard to just go to the store and get a new one, at least where I live. Its mostly just tablets, phones and laptops. But that is not what I need, I need a beast. It is going to be the PC for not just my personal drawings, also for my working life (and perhaps my own company thing).
16gb RAM (8gb minimum)
SSDs (OS disk)
Graphics card that can handle Adobe Premiere and Cinema 4D (or other big 3D programmes) and of course PS, Illustrator, InDesign etc
At least 1TB of storage
If anyone has some advice on where to look or to start that would be really helpful.
Thank you very much in advance.
