Configuring A High-End, Mainstream Workstation On A Budget

Mar 05 2013, 03:00 AM by

Take a quick look at the site of the major workstation manufacturers and you’ll find many systems at prices that would buy you a nice new Mercedes C-Class. If you have high-end requirements and expectations, but you don’t have the bank account to go with it, you might be surprised to learn that with a little research you can configure a massively competent personal computer from strictly consumer enthusiast parts that will challenge the megabuck workstations. So unless you’re using proprietary or highly technical software, but only want a system that will scream on Photoshop, 3D Rendering, or Video Encoding, let your fingers do the walking through the online sites and buy amazing performance on 10% of the budget of a conventional workstation.
