I'm looking for an advice regards to workstation for Photographer / Designer. Mostly I'm working in photoshop on a huge files with lots of smart objects, filters etc. Files like this can be huge as those are HDR Spherical Panoramas made from 96 images every 12mpix. In the future it will be even bigger as I'm going to buy 36mpix. I'm also using Lightroom4, PtGui, KrPano, SNS HDR and in the future I'm planing to start work in Maya, Zbrush and other 3d software.
I'm totally newbie in hardware. I have decided to go with double processor, SSD discs and RAID following by Nvidia and ADOBE guidelines. I have also choosen a graphic card recommended by them. I the future I will buy some more RAM and normal HHD disc. I already have a monitor ordered.
My the biggest question is about dual cpu motherboard and E5-2620 Xeons. I have heard it might be a better idea to go with one Intel Core i7-3930K 3,2GHz on a single processor mother board. It doesn't make much sens for me as I'm thinking two processors will have more power and cores and this is recommended by Adobe. I'm might be wrong but I just would like to know why and how does it works.
I'm going to buy parts from poland or Ireland. In general it doesn't matter. Preferred EU.
I'm not going overclocking.
I wont to buy computer as fast as possible but I can wait few weeks.
I don't need to buy any software. (assuming optical drive will have one attached).
Monitor resolution 2560x1440 (2560x1600 in the future)
