Alright well, this computer is going be used for blender/photoshop/video editing/gaming/digital art, etc.

I want to spend around 800-1100$, and I just want the best performance.

Over this time, I've had people tell me large amounts of various things, and I'd like someone to explain why one thing is better then the other then just saying it is, if you could.
I'm even willing to donate if I have to get proper help to insure that I get max performance and stability at my price range. I don't mean to be complicated, I just need a little help

Thanks guys.

And why is that video card better then the two 9600GT?
And is there a better motherboard available for a little more money?
Thanks again.
And could you move this post to the higher ended gaming section? I didn't realize this was for general PC's.

Grinchy, I would gladly help you out on MSN or otherwise, but I am at work right now. Send me an email or private message (email is on my public profile; just click my name on the left) and I will explain things and walk you through it.


If I was helpful, please click the icon on the left hand side of this message that looks like a check mark Thanks!
