My PC is quite old. Current specs:
ASUS p8Z68-V Pro
i7-2600k @ 3.4 ghz
G Skill 16G (2x8G) DDR3 1600MHZ
Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 Vapor-X
Seasonic S12 550W PSU
I am currently running a 3 monitor setup and using this PC predominantly for Autodesk Programs, Rendering, CAD & Lightroom. Basically the entire Adobe & Autodesk suites with the occasional bit of real-time rendering and video editing. I don't game. Is anything in this build salvageable or worth anything?
I'm finding that programs are getting quite slow and am wondering if I should upgrade to a more modern PC. Lightroom and AfterFX are particularly slow and I cannot update to Windows 11. I would have loved to use something like a new Macbook, but I just don't think the programs and workflow I have can be sustained.
I am after some for build advice. My only real constraint is that it must be quiet. Not closed off to pre-built systems either like the ones being posted on occasion here or the Dell Specials.
Ideally: 32GB Ram, 3070 or 3060 and a quiet case and a decent brand PSU.
A few sata slots and 2x NVME SSD slots would also be ideal.
Does this sound like a pre-built to you to go below 2k or should I just fork up the cash and buy everything separate?
