  1. Hi all, I'm wanting to build another pc since my old one is ...well, old. So I thought I would ask all of you for some advice. What I intend to do with this system is graphics editing (photoshop), watch movies, database stuff, etc. I need something that will last awhile. My last system is still running, albeit very slowly these days due to being old, but was good for 7 years! I had an Asus motherboard and an Intel Processor and of course maxed out the RAM, lots of fans and NVIDIA graphics card.

    Money wise, I don't want to spend an arm, leg and my first born, but I don't want to have to replace my system 2 years from now either. I intend to run Windows 7 on this, do some gaming, use Photoshop and Microsoft Office as well as other programs. Do any of you have any suggestions? I appreciate the advice! Thanks in advance. -AJ
