If it was possible to see nationality of purchases, I do know around September for us Americans is when family gets pretty busy again since the kids are back in school, vacations are over and they’re back to work more etc.
So in my opinion, unless the purchases were for a pure full time business, the hobby purchases might be lower for a month or two until everyone gets ‘situated’ again.
So they are saying the psd just doesn’t have the wow or uniqueness needed. But may have what needed as html or wp for example
Not always true Simon
I rather purchase. Theme that fits what I need more than buying a theme that has mass features and so on. I don’t think I am alone here
Thanks. I went ahead and shot them a ticket hopefully they will reply soon.
If anyone else has feedback, let me know
Any other feedback before I contact them? I don’t want to waste their time. I figured this was common knowledge (maybe it is) whether you can or can’t.
Hey there. While I’m somewhat new to themeforest, I have spent most of my career catering strictly to clients.
I am able to design some really booming sites if you’re interested. Drop me a message and I will shoot you my portfolio
I guess no one knows if I am allowed to use a php template system when submitting Themes to theme forest
Am I allowed to use a template framework so I don’t have HTML/PHP wrapped together. I’m very experienced with smarty and am not sure if I’m allowed to use that when creating ThemeForest submissions
If this information is available on what we can and can’t use, can you send me a link to it please?
If you have the money, you could almost forgo buying a traditional platter drive (HDD)
While SSD’s are still more expensive, within the past month they have dropped prices by a lot. You can pick up a 1tb SSD for roughly $350-$400. Which while it might be still somewhat ‘expensive’ compared to a normal 1TB drive. The quality of the part you’re getting (something that’ll last much longer then an HDD) and the fact that it performs 20x faster than a HDD, it’s worth the investment in my eyes. But this is JUST if you have the money.
For the RAM – I would recommend atleast 16gb, but pay attention to how much you use – It’s true that you’re not going to see a benefit with the more ram that you have, but if you’re doing a lot of work, like video editing or more. 16gigs still might not be enough for what you do, but if you want to save a little money and grab an 8gb kit and come back to add in another kit of it, that’s fine. I also agree with at least 1600mhz – This is the standard
Gskill has the best price/performance ratio. Corsair if you want the performance, but there are other good alternatives to both of these.
AMD vs Intel – I would definitely go INTEL for sure. UNLESS you’re looking for one of the chips with an onboard GPU, in which this case, AMD is ahead… but I would never recommend the onboard GPU over a stand alone card.
As for what generation of CPU you should get on the Intel side – Honestly, if you don’t mind overclocking or would enjoy giving that a go, I’d grab a 2700K if you can find one. You’ll spend less money, and these are ‘golden’ chip’s. Meaning these will overclock quite well. This is the chip I still have and I have it cooled under an Corsair H100 at 5.2ghz for everyday use, it is still cooler and faster then any 4770K running at 4.8ghz.. and to get a 4770K at 4.8ghz for every day use, you’ll need an actual water cooling loop
The newer Intel chips skimped out on the internal cooling (solder vs’s a paste now) so they actually run much hotter when overclocking, nor do they overclock as well.
While AMD offers up more cores, most software does not take advantage of the extra cores today and if they DO take advantage of the cores, Intels architecture + speed still helps it to outperform an AMD setup. My advice is to just go for AMD only if you want to save money or need an onboard GPU built into the CPU (APU is what they’re called)
Motherboards, I would run with an Asus, but just do a review of the latest boards at http://www.newgg.com and see what people are grabbing now a days. Stay away from Asrock and Foxconn – While they do produce good boards, they also have the ‘worst’ ones as well.
For a GPU – It really doesn’t matter what you get. I’ve owned them all, and I’m the least biased person about GPU’s. They all have driver issues from time to time, and the performance is always about neck to neck. Personally, I’ve felt ATI AKA AMD has the better built cards and better price/performance ratio as of late. And I’m a person who is running Nvidia GPU’s.
For the brand’s on the GPU – MSI, Sapphire, EVGA, Asus are what I recommend. If you go with Nvidia, I would highly recommend getting an EVGA thanks to their customer satisfaction.
PSU’s. Corsair is great, same with Seasonic, again just do a quick review to see what’s being bought heavily right now.
Case – Just find one that you like. I personally have an NZXT Switch 810 and couldn’t be happier with it
