I always see questions about what systems to buy or build for CorelDRAW, as I am now getting a new system I thought I'd share the system specifications.
First I always build I never buy brand name systems. I had a chance to work with the new Asus displays and I did not have the calibration issues that was shown on the Karl Taylor web site and I thought $1,549 was a reasonable price.
I9-9900 8 core
1TB Samsung SSD
4 TB WD hard drive for storage
64 GB 3200MH DDR4 RAM
Nvidia GeForce 1060 6GB display card
24X +/- DVD
750 watt Power Supply
Windows 10 Pro.
The display will be the Asus 32” ProArt. PA32UC
$2,499 + $1,549 total $4,048
I'd add a decent keyboard. This is absolutely brilliant. https://www.pckeyboard.com/
And put 2, 4 TB WD drives in a Synology NAS running RAID for peace of mind. Thats what I currently have and its never put a foot wrong.
I use MS keyboard and mouse, don't know if they're best but less adjustment for me, they're included in the price.
I was fortunate to be able to test the display about 60 days after it was put on line. Karl Taylor thought his display might need a little break in period and that seems correct.
I have a complete back up system and a herd of nerds so no raid required.
Next month for two weeks I get to test drive the latest generation of MS Surface Studio 2. I'm thinking of adding one for the touch experiance when cloning work on my archival art business.
Some of the new Asus laptops are nuts. That is all I use is Asus gaming laptops for ten years now, but the new duo pro is nuts. And now they are coming out with Pantone verified monitors it's getting better faster.
Asus is really stepping up and making some decent displays at competitive prices. I've been using their main boards for years with very stable results.
