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.
