help me build a comp for mum.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi all, my moms a graphic designer, and uses photoshop and poser and a whole bunch of design applications. Well shes been stuck on a p4 for the longest time and desperately needs a upgrade. She wont be overclocking, a quad core, 4 gigs ram (two x 2gb sticks) and a decent motherboard is required. A $800 to $1000 dollar budget is whats up for these components, as I have a case psu and hdd for her already. Ill let you guys play your magic and come up with Ideas for me. The highest speed quad is a necessity. Thank you all in advance.

Edit: closer to $800 would be best.

well you should seriously consider just getting a Q6600 and overclocking it.

Very nice suggestions penicylin, forgot to mention I have a gpu too. Its just her system has to be 100% stable, and a long life, hence why I dont want to overclock it. As im the one that has to deal with any problems she has, and I have no clue on intel, overclockings at the back of mind. Rep+ for components Id look into a rig for myself.
