New PC for Art

Specs of my PC which I use for daily art and design.

I was super blessed in November! My husband’s streaming community got together behind our backs and organized a gofundme so that I could upgrade my 10 year old PC. It was a beast back in its day, but the hardware wasn’t keeping up with the software anymore. The brush lag in Corel Painter was particularly bad, even though this old benchmark claims brush performance will be exceptional, it really wasn’t…

For comparison, here’s my new benchmark…
