I just built a lga 2011 system (i7 3930, gtx 660ti, 32 gb, Samsung 830 256GB ssd). I am working on getting the system best setup and optimized for cs6 master collection.
My first build went like this:
2. mobo drivers
3. nVidia driver from website
5. Firewall -- block everything besides my browsers from the net
7. run Studio 1 CUDA hack SW for Prem & AE
8. corelDraw6 Maya/Max & other graphics sw
9. ms office
10. portable apps (browsers, burners, media players ect)
Now I am beginning to realize that I should have installed quicktime before I installed cs6? I don't like quicktime, can I install the codecs somehow w/o the sw? Any substitutes? Do I need to ug my directX? Are there other codecs I should install. Is the anything I need to do to make other cs6 Apps see my hardware?
I am going to do a second build to take care of a few probs I had & get a cleaner build, I appreciate any advice for setting up a system for cs6.
You don't necessarily need QuickTime. PP can open many MOV files without QuickTime installed, particularly MPEG based MOVs from DSLRs.
(And I'd skip 5. So long as you know what you're doing, it's unnecessary and doing this can actually cause problems.)
(I'd also skip 9, as there have been reports of conflicts with Adobe software. Run office apps on a separate machine.)
