I have been an AMD user since about '95, my first was a 600Mhz purchased from BB (forgot the brand but I think it was an Acer), I than started DIY using the Acer case and upgrading the MB along with slapping in a T-bird 1 gig prosessor. I have been through several builds and am currently at my sig, it's deffinetly getting long in the tooth!
I have had cold boot problems for about 6 months (not sure if it's the PSU or MB) and recently devolped BSOD problems. I checked my sticks individually and one of them turned out to be bad so I removed it, now i'm running on 1 gig and my rig is running a bit slower but no BSOD problems.
With that said i'm long overdue for an upgrade and i'd like to stay with AMD and would like some advice (i'm thinking about $1000 total)
I know i'll have to upgrade my OS so please keep that in mind.
My wants are...
1 TB HD to go along with my SSD
Video card does not have to be cutting edge but I would prefer ATI
16 gigs ram(?)
MB around $100ish?
I'm not sure if I need a new PSU, i'll see if I can get it checked out
I have a Pentax K-5 and will be using Lightroom for prosessing my raw files (raw files are around 20Mb)
Thanks as always,
