Quote from: PopeyesPappy on October 03, 2018, 04:53:21 PMI've got a new project at work that is going to require processing a couple hundred thousand images. Some of them are going to be very large TIF files. 60" x 40" at 400 ppi x 24 bits. Anyway I budgeted for a new computer to do the grunt work and I ordered the parts Monday and got a shipping number today. It's been a while since I built a PC, and this ought to be fun. Here's the parts list:It won't have any fancy graphics, but I don't need that. Just a lot of processing power, memory and disk space. This will be my first foray into NVME SSD. This thing ought to be pretty damn fast.

A fast fourier transform of a picture involves a lot of computations per pixel, because the processing of each pixel, depends on all the others.

Quote from: Gawdzilla Sama on October 05, 2018, 01:44:07 PMHmmm, my eight year old Nikon reproduced pix 48"x48" with no problem. I just put them on the floor and shot from the edge of a table.

I'm running 64 bit Win7 Pro on a 3.5GHz quad core Intel, and the delay between power on and login is almost negligible. My data drives are standard hard drives (3.5Tb total between two drives -- I could not afford that kind of space on SSD), but the boot drive is solid state and holy Bob that's fast.
