I recently changed cameras to the Fuji X-Pro 1. And now LR runs dog slow. No, painfully slow. I'd like to upgrade my motherboard and get it right the first time without wasting money. My current PC has an older dual core 6320 with 4GB memory and Win 7. (It was fine when I was processing JPGs of all sizes.)
Currently, when I open a RAW image from the Fuji, it might take a full 60-seconds for the image to load. And that is from a SS drive, which holds all my images. The three obvious questions for an upgrade then would be:
What level of processor? I5? I7? etc.
How much memory?
What video card? I currently have a Geforce 6300.
I know there is a general answer which is always, "as fast as possible, as much memory as possible" - but that also implies "as much money as possible." I'd like to not overspend above what is needed.
If I could get the 60-second load time down to a few seconds, I'd be happy. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
