Purchased a custom, gaming computer for the speed and power. 550 Watt power supply, Asus Sabertooth Intel X58 chipset motherboard with Sata3, USB 3, Intel Core I7, Arctic cooling, 12 GB Ram, NVIDIA 460, 1 TB hard drive, 2 optical hard drives/Blue Ray, . . .
I do mainly photos with Adobe Photo Shop Elements. I do not like a Mac, so bought as much as I could in a PC. Problem is it is inconsistent in speed and performance, and depending on 'whatever' it may work fast or not! I get blue screens, a reboot screen on restart and other annoying inconsistencies like settings don't hold. I've sent it back for repair/checking and diagnostics on RAM, etc. and, of course everything was fine! Could it be Windows 7/64? The software worked great on another computer, so I don't believe it's the software.
