I have really been feeling it lately. The strain of not having a proper computer to work on. I used to have a good rig years ago, but like most Tech, computers become obsolete after serval years. I have been working on my laptop now for the last 2 years and its just not quite the same thing. I need to have a more powerful system to do the things I do these days. Although I am a Linux SysAdmin by trade, I do dabble in many other things, from Photography to Videography, from experimenting on Virtual Machines to Rendering 3d graphics. I even take on clients from time to time who require services in those fields, but sadly for the last 2 years, I have had to turn many people down as I just don’t have the resources I used to. The problem is current generation computers are not cheap. A system that can handle the jobs I do cost around $2000 if I outsource the parts myself and build it myself. If I were to buy it pre-built you would be looking at $2500 to $3000.
