Love how the resident tough guy is happy to talk trash on an internet forum but back pedals as soon as he is called out. Typical coward. No doubt he'll respond to this with excessive bravado in order to restore his rightful place as a fully fledged internet badass.

Looks like a decent PC and it will run dual 22" LCDs just fine
IMO all it needs is an SSD for the OS instead of one of the 2TB drives but that's up to you, would make it run a lot faster but not as much storage

Have you tried turning it off and on again?

SSD for OS looks like a very common thing to do now. I did it. It's great. I recommend 40gb for OS.

I don't know if you can cut enough from the RAM in order to improve the GFX card slightly, but that is an awful lot of RAM.

You'd have to be running several instances of Maya to be using that much.

IMO the graphics will be fine, SSD is the only place I reckon any savings should be placed
120GB+ is what I'd recommend for an SSD; allows the OS, some apps and some data/docs quite comfortably.

I can tell you 40gb already does that. I only have basic necessitys on C though.

I have 120GB for mine and is quite comfortable with a bit of free space should I need it in the future icon_smile.gif
