MaximumPC: We show you the complete system configuration for the photographer who wants to create more than snapshots and Facebook photos
THE MISSION As a digital photography and video enthusiast, I needed a system that could handily withstand the rigors of Photoshop and make my occasional work in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 move more smoothly. High-end enthusiast PC parts seemed like the way to go, allowing me avoid the crushing cost of professional workstation components.
But a fast PC isn’t the only ingredient. I also needed to consider the peripherals. For instance, by going with an ultra-high-resolution display, my editing can be much more exact, saving me time in the long run, and enabling me to produce high-quality results. A high-end photo printer gives me a means for displaying my masterworks with poster-size prints.
