I like to build a brand new computer to install Ubuntu and use it for design and video works. The softwares that I have been using include Gimp, Digikam, Kdenlive, Audacity, Inkscape and Scribus. My current HP laptop is from 2009 and so it's pretty slow when I have to do work.
I have a limited budget of CAD800 - $1,000 and I am hoping to get a 27" Monitor as well. Can you help and help me determine what I can get to build the system? I am looking at websites like newegg.ca, tigerdirect.ca and ncix.ca for parts.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
