I've always wanted to be a concept artist in the gaming industry, and I've just decided it's about damn time to make it come true. I'm currently in my first year of computer sciences, and desperately trying to switch out to fine arts, so I have ample time to decide on a machine I that can later put to proper use. I'm deciding between an iMac and a PC I configured. The specs are: 20 inch iMac - 2GB memory - 250GB HD - ATI Radeon X1600 256MB That comes to $1877 CDN after student discount. PC: -E6600 CPU -2GB OCZ Gold memory -eVGA 8800 GTS 640MB -74GB Raptor 10K RPM HD -500GB Seagate HD -(mobo, PSU 700W, blah blah blah) -(monitor, keyboard, mouse not included) Comes to $1993 CDN Just looking at it, the PC is a bitchin machine already, but I don't know, perhaps some of you can give me reasons why not to build a PC and buy an iMac instead. At first I was considering a MBP but I already have a MB, don't need two laptops. I know these will be outdated too soon, but I just need an idea of which I should buy. I'm figuring it would be no later than the end of this year...and no earlier than November.
