Thanks again Shizaru...
If I was going to buy a prebuilt machine I would buy a corsair one. It is fast, isnt this clunky huge tower, has custom watercooled video card and processor so its nice and quiet. The thing is its not expensive if you consider whats under the hood so its a good value and everything is all put together on top of it.
Where do I find these models Komatsu? When I look up Corsair I get computer parts but I cannot find any pre built. Or does pre built mean to assemble my own? I am not tech savvy enough to do that right now,
pre built means corsair builds it for you.

Thank you! I put it on my Amazon wishlist...the 32gb model when it comes in. Out of Stock right now.
Hey Michael, I recently ordered a desktop PC for similar workloads with the additional need of being able to handle After Effects and 2D animation/4k editing.
I got a ton of useful advice that would apply to your search as well here: http://forum.tabletpcreview.com/threads/help-stone-decide-on-next-yuge-purchase.71651/
I use a dual screen setup with a 22HD cintiq and a 34" Dell curved ultrawide display and its amazing for productivity!
Thanks Stoneseeker. I have just had a moment to glance at your link. It seems most of that is a DIY thread. I will read more of it tonight. What did you end up getting? I am going to order new stuff at the end of this month. I will pick up the Wacom MSP Pro. The 16" i7 with 16 gb ram. I will hold off on another Cintiq until their new 32 coms out next year. So I have some time with getting the desktop.
Thanks for posting your link. I look forward to reading it tonight.
Although I selected the parts through NCIX, --the same as you could using memory express or newegg etc--, I also was not comfortable building it myself and just paid NCIX the $50 build fee to do it for me! So dont be too intimidated by the process, its the much more affordable way to build a high end workstation, and usually the build fee includes a warranty on top of the parts warranty as well. Any number of people on here will gladly help you pick the right parts for your beast when your ready to do it, I recommend this route over getting a pre-built, as you will get much more bang for your buck and can customize it to your needs and wants.
Glad to hear you settled on the MSP for now, the top end 16" version was tempting ot me as well, but I cant justify replacing my aging T902 just yet.
Thanks again. I had no idea you could pay these outfits to assemble the unit. I think the MSP 16 should take care of my needs for a while. Once the new Cintiqs come in then maybe I will consider upgrading my desktop. Sure appreciate your taking the time to reply.
