    Hi all,

    I asked the IT techi at the school where I teach to build me a powerful
    computer to run Photoshop CS5 Extended. I've just received the new computer
    and I've got to say... it flies!! I did some research beforehand, but I left
    it up to him to choose some of the parts. For those who are interested, or
    aren't sure what to get I offer the following info on my system:

    Intel Core I7 860 2.8 Ghz Quad core
    Asus P7P5D-LE core I7 motherboard
    8Gb DDR3 1600
    64Gb Kingston SSD
    2 TB WD SATA HDD
    Nvidia GTS 240 Asus
    Antec Earthwatts 650 watt PSU
    DVD+RW Drive
    Windows 7 Home premium

    I'm still using my LG Studioworks crt monitor, as photos look great on it,
    but if and when it dies I may get a Dell Ultrasharpen later on (unless you
    can recommend a similar/better monitor for around $AUD300

    Paul:)

    fundamental.
