View Full Version : Computer Specs Requested

Iím a physiologist who spends more and more time doing animations for medical school lectures. My boss likes what Iíve done on my every-faculty-member-gets-the-same-desktop machine well enough to be willing to pony up $3-4000 for something better. Our Internet technophiles are as clueless as I am about what a complete machine ought to look like. Iíll appreciate any suggested set of specs I can get. Iím pretty much forced to run a Microsoft operating system. (Cohabiting with Microsoft is not easy for someone who needed two years to get over the death of the Amiga.) Sorry if this is a frequent request, but I donít see anything in the FAQís.

With a budget like that, you can rock and roll.

Here is a good speced machine someone just built. You could probably put the same thing together for well under $4000, or if not, you could get something only SLIGHTLY less... potent.
