Post 3+ Months Ago

G'day my name is peter and i live in Seaford Victoria Australia.

being retired i joined the U3A and am learning drawing and oil painting.

i was very interested in b&w photography but now digital is the go and i am delighted to learn that i could use my computer for art as well.

till now have just used Picasa for my photos.

both my laptop and desktop computers need an upgrade so with art in mind - what do i need to start saving for.

based on your opinions i might plan to get the hardware and software so that my dreams can be set down on paper or canvas.

we have a motor home and love the outback but i have discovered that portraits and still life are fantastic as well.

would really value your guidance

kind regards


peter

your going to need a Quad core at least and a good 1 gig of graphic memory to render everything. You can build a tower for about 800 or so if you shop around not including monitor.

check out static ice web site, google for aussie computer shops.
