Are you building this or buying it prebuilt?

State your budget and what parts you already have and still need, Im sure we can make a better computer.

uh huh, this is the site of the products i "assembled in my mind"

http://www.pcx.com.ph/catalog/

They have a branch here 3 blocks away, and I want to buy there, I checked and researched every part I want and find it to be good, well for me it is, that is why I am seeking comments and suggestions. I will use the PC for gaming, well not hardcore gaming that is, primarily in graphics designing, only photoshop not 3d applications. I just want to know if it is compatible, not outdated so much, and long lasting. Thanks for helping me Ste!!
