I literally cannot stand computers. Money isn't much of a concern, honestly. I work on my computer and while I don't know any crazy shit I generally do have many many things going on at once (a lot of video files... porn, art films, dailies, usually a teleconference type thing, music, a lot of internet windows and programs like final draft and Reason - that one can take a lot). So, I'm tired of my laptop being too slow. Can I just buy my way to a computer that can do most of these simple things without waiting for shit to load and whatever? I want to use Windows. I don't understand UNIX or whatever it is, and no I will never get a mac. If I were to buy something with a really fast processor and a ton of ram would the damn thing just do what I ask it to do as soon as I click on it? Very recently my friend came to live with me while he was waiting for his place to be finished and he's a well respected fashion photographer. He has a computer that he used for really high flying video and photo editing and I used it for a day doing all the above things and honestly it worked like a dream. It's overkill for what I need, but it really worked. So can you guys help me buy components or point me to a brand that will make some motherfucker of a computer (I don't need gay graphics capabilities)... just something that will let me type/internet/porn/videos/everything in fucking peace? The security guard downstairs has a son at DePaul doing computer engineering or whatever and I've told him I'll hire the kid to come assemble it... but he isn't around (he's volunteering in Sri Lanka or whatever). Please help me. Thank you, much appreciated.
