Hi people, about a year ago I setup a miniITX rig as a budget gaming PC (1-2 games) and uni work - programming (Python mostly). Recently, I am starting to work in R and using large datasets along with Illustrator and Photoshop. I think I need to upgrade my PC to compute more efficiently as the datasets I am working with are very slow to load compared with IMacs at uni so I would like a little more speed at home. I am not sure what would be the most appropriate method. Any advice on improving performance primarily for the use of Illustrator and R? Thank you!
