Yeahh so I finally got a new PC! THIS badboy right here:
Maan I've been needing a new pc for years! And early this year I decided it's high time I get a pc for reals so I started taking extra freelance gigs to make enough money for a new pc....I mean heck my film project was on pause due to pc problems and what not. Anyway I'd almost saved up enough, but my folks decided to get me a pc as an early bday present. SO yeah I got a pc earlier than I thought I would and well I didn't have to use my money....which I guess I can put to other uses now (namely getting a note tablet to draw digitally on the go :3) Thank you kind parent folks, really appreciate it XD Also I don't have to go to any local unis anymore, so I can focus fully on art and animation. Phew..it's been a long time coming, but my folks are finally beginning to support me
But yeah this makes life hella easier, I can finally work on my short film and do more 3D CG stuff too
Not to mention I can finally livestream AND make regular youtube painting videos... YAY
I bought it this Friday and some of my very good friends from work came along to help me get it. I'd already done some research online about which processor and GPU to get..but I really didn't think up much about the mobo or the PSU or sth....fortunately the shopkeeper guy was very knowledgeable and my friends helped a lot too. And I brought it home on Saturday and spent much of the day trying to get all the essential softwares and such..Oh yeah, and my big bro bought me a new pendrive! How cool is that? He sez it's an early bday gift too....I can't even
Sankyuu ni san!
As far as configuration goes, here's mine:
Core i7 4770K Processor
MSI H87-G43 Gaming Motherboard
Gigabyte Nividia GeForce 760 GTX (been dreamin of this card for a while now aaa)
8Gb RAM (Imma increase it to 32 soon since I'm low on cash right now)
1TB HDD (more than enough for now I guess)
Thermaltake Smartpower PSU
Thermaltake VN600 Spacecraft VF-1 Casing
Pretty good for now, will be helpin make em render times a whole lot faster..oh did I mention Photoshop works buttery smooth now? Even with a bazillion programs running in the background and on a hi res canvas? YEP. Bout time I'd say....I was SO sick and tired of PS crashing every few minutes in my old pc....It was awesome at it's time, but guess it's time for it to rest. It's been through me all these years starting from when I began to get serious about digital art up till recently...so it does have a lot of sentimental value, so I ain't sellin it. Will be passing it on to my cousin I guess.
So right now, I have some of a freelance gig left, and once I get that done, I'll jump right into my short film and get it done. FO REALS
And I can experiment with animation and stuff again....oh man guys I can't even tell you how much possibilities this opens up for me....
But yeah, guess here on forth it's the beginning of another new journey. I won't be held back by a pc anymore, so I better get crackin and get doing the stuff I wanna do! Gotta keep moving onwards and create cool awesome stuff, with me trusty new pc by my side!
Hmmm I think I should come up with a name for my PCs.... Eh will think about it later.
Thanks for all your support as always <3333 I'll try to post more often! *huggles all*
Umm yeah enough rambin for now...I gotta run.
But yersh, Livestreamin and speedpainting videos coming up
Ciao fer now! I'm out XD
P.S - I CAN PLAY GAMES AGAIN OMFG (currently replaying Mirror's Edge...been a while since I did hah)
