Helios PC Workstation


I needed a new workstation for my photgraph and filming aspirations.

So for Photoshop, HDR, video editing and Timelapse compilations I looked for a steady and powerfull computer that was able to render and also graphically capable of playing HD quality video.

Although I'm not a gamer I went to the Tweakers.net Buy-Guide and chose the High-end gamesysteem and altered it into a medium setup with parts of the Budgetgame- en gamesysteem.

Best Buy Guide - Desktop best buy guide: editie november 2012

For the Case I chose a more expensivebut also more flexible solution. Good and easy access and cable management and enough space to upgrade.
