I have not built a PC in 10 years but I'm comfortable with taking parts in an out of a case....its picking parts I suck at. I'm using a free Dell 980 (Intel i5 650 CPU) I salvaged from the city I work for. For an old PC it does well with Lightroom but bogs down a bit with RAW flies. I want to build something faster to run LR and some ham radio apps I use. I'm trying to do this on a $600 budget, importing Windows from my old HD to an SDD. I went conservative with 8GB RAM to keep the budget down and add later.
Thoughts on this build list?
