I am looking to buy myself a new computer (asking from an xp right now...). It would need to be fast and within my price range, which I have set at roughly $0-600. I am planning on running software, such as Sibelius 7 (computer requirements), EastWest/Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra (Tech Specs on same page), Blender, photo and video editing software, Visual Studio, and other similar software. I have never used a computer fast enough to do all that I wanted, (for instance, Houdini Software hardly worked), and don't want to end up with another computer like that.
Does anyone know what the best option would be for me? At first I was looking for a Windows Tower, but I don't care about the operating system or computer type, just so long as it is fast.
Does anyone know what the fasted computer I could get in my price range would be?
So far, the best reviewed things that have come into my price range (that I have found) are the two following:
Right off the bat, my first inclination would be to go with the AAC-X4 computer, since it is on sale about $250. Yet I would prefer to get something from Costco, so I can return it if I decide I don't want it.
