    equipment?

    Finally got my ideal job.....flash and graphics designer
    I have been asked for a list of my requirements in terms of the equipment I will need (within reason), but it seems there is no real budget limit!!!
    Any thoughts from anyone about what I should ask for?

    From initial job ad (yesterday), applied (yesterday), interview (yesterday evening),job offer (at interview) confirmed (today) start work (monday)
    not sure they will wait 3 weeks!

    I tend to work with pc's, so other than a computer with decent processor, good graphics card, lots of RAM....any specifics I should ask for?

    Don't forget a pretty good digital camera. Oh, and your drawing tablet.

    Those are must haves, and with no real budget, go for it!

    heh if you think they have an unlimited budget, go for discreet's fire. that workstation goes for about $500,000... found that out when i filled out their free trial form on discreets websites and i started getting calls from resellers trying to sell it to me.

    just get a fast computer, multiple moniters, all the suites you use (adobe, macromedia...) and a comfortable chair.
