Help Advice on Build please ?
I would appreciate it if any of you mackintish experts would spare a few minutes and advise me on the below build.
I'm a web designer and work mainly with PS and a load of other development programs (db, flash etc). I will probably be doing some bit of HD video editing in the future.
I have been working on a MBP for about 5 years now and it has served me very very well but its slowing down so i need to build a powerful work station. I have only just come across the concept of a hackintosh and love the idea of building myself, having something exremely poserful and saving cash.
What i need :
> A computer that will allow me to have as many programs open as possible (20 browser windows if need be, PS, DB app, skype etc etc etc ) with it still being lightening fast
> A computer that will allow me to have the latest version of MAC (obviously) but also i would like to have 1 or more versions of windows bootable from mac (via parallels) becuase i need to ensure some sites are UNFORTUNATELY ie compatible !
Bascially im following the guidelines of no fiulm school build with a few modifications
