So Lightroom has always been, IMO, kinda on the slower side of things. I bought the computer I have now like 5 years ago..It was ballin at the time but now I think its starting to show its age. Its an older P4 3.2GHz with HT and I only have 1.5GB of RAM. And then its got some older SATA drives and even some IDE stuff too So if I spent like $750, I could build something pretty decent and stuff would run a lot faster, amirite? This is what I got.. 2x Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive EVGA 512-P3-N871-AR GeForce 9800 GTX 512MB 256-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card - Retail CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 ... - Retail G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5D-4GBPQ - Retail ASUS P5N-D LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail Intel Core2 Quad Q9400 2.66GHz LGA 775 95W Quad-Core Processor Model BX80580Q9400 - Retail Thats got to run a helluva lot better than what I have now, right?
