Default Wacom Cintiq and other questions


I'm in the processing of researching to build a new computer. This computer will be used mainly for:

3D modeling
Graphic design

Right now I have a laptop that constantly overheats, and I do a majority of my work at school, but I would really like to invest in something that will provide optimum results. I know that this will be a lot of money (which I am saving up for), but it's a small price to pay for the field that I am going into. Any suggestions on what best video cards, proccesor, etc. I should use?

The Wacom Cintiq looks like something that I want to use, but it's quite pricey. I've used the Wacom tablets before, and they work nice, but this tablet/monitor seems to be the one the professional industry uses...and it also looks wicked awesome. Has any had any experience with it?

Anyway, any tips or suggestions would help

Sure. The link is here:


The cintiq itself is 2500, and I'm guessing the computer will be around 1000, so about 3500 is my budget. I'm still not sure if I should go all out and get cintiq or just stick with the normal drawing tablet for now.
