New Workstation - Opinions?

Question asked by Luther Cifers on Jun 14, 2009
Latest reply on Jul 1, 2009 by Anna Wood
After th things that Anna explained in my last post "Poor Workstation Performance" it's clear that to get the performance I'm looking for I need to get a new workstation with the latest components. I've read back through several posts and saw a lot of references to XI computers, so I went online and configured one. Does anyone see anything here that stands out as not sensible - either over-the-top on some components or not good enough on others?
