Assignment #1 1. What are the TOP two (2) MOST important computer parts you would need to consider for the team computers and why? The first computer part that is the most important for a team of graphic designers is the Central Processing Unit (CPU). The processor is the brain of the computer. When turned on its main task is to make sure all programs and functions run smoothly. The softwares that graphic designers use on a daily basis can be very processor-intensive which makes the CPU a very valuable computer part for them to be able to run their programs at their full potential. The second most important computer component is the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). For people working in the graphic design field, this computer part is one of the most valuable because it allows the user to receive much better graphic performance providing much better quality images to work with. Pair a very good GPU alongside a nice 4k true colour monitor and the user will be able to work with top class images. 2. For these computer parts that you identified in the previous question, what general specifications would you recommend and why? After doing research, I decided to go with the Intel Core i7 - 10700K 3.8 GHz 8-Core Processor. This processor goes for 377.77$ before tax and is perfect for graphic design due to its high clock speed, calculated in GHz, allowing it to work exceptionally well with high- performance programs such as Photoshop or Lightroom. For the GPU, I went with the Asus GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER 8GB Dual EVO OC V2. It goes for 411.98$ and is a high performance GPU that can display rich colours and visuals for the designers to work with. It also has a large memory size which allows the user to operate at higher resolutions and helps with render time.
