Daz Studio - Which new computer should I buy?
I'm now a new Daz user, and I have to say it's just an awesome software. I'm still practicing and learning how it works, and what are the functionnalities, but I can say Daz got all I was looking for. And for free! Just perfect!
But I work with my personnal computer: a laptop ASUS n61j series (I7).
It's a good enough laptop to work, but it takes really lot of time to do a good render.
For exemple, I need 70 minutes of rendering to do a scene in "The old warehouse" (DzFire), with 1 Victoria 4.2, 4 spot lights, 2 light-ball, and uber (I'm actually trying to learn how this one works!).
So, I'm looking for a new laptop. I prefer laptops because I don't have enough room in my appartment to have another desk and a classic computer. I like to have a mobile computer, and I think I will stay in this way.
Now, I found a few interesting gamer laptops than you can see here:
Same than the previous one, but less RAM (8Go), but SSD.
Less powerful I7(3610 instead of 3630), but better graphic card (GTX680)
I'm quite far to be an expert with computer, so my question is:
What is the most important point for Daz Studio?
Do I need the better processor i7? Do I have to more consider to get more RAM? Is the graphic card the most important point?
My other question is: Problems of Slow rendering is only a lack of power of my computer, or Daz Studio program itself can't do it a lot faster?
Sure, I won't buy a new one because of Daz, and I will play some game on it (Skyrim HD! Yeaaaaaah), but it would have an impact on my decision to buy a new computer now or later.
My budget is 1500 to 1800€. Maybe more if something a bit more expensive could be far better.
I don't need Bluray.
Thanks a lot in advance for the your futures answers!
