Its cheaper to build. An AMD X2 and good amount of memory will do good.

Whats your budget?

Building it yourself is waaay cheaper. Id say:
DFI Ultra-D mobo - 120 dollars
AMD 3800 X2 - 300 dollars
2 GB of G skill ram - 150 dollars
Antec Truepower 550 - 80 dollars
Creative X fi Xtrememusic - 110 dollars
Nvidia 7900 GT - 320 dollars
you might want a quadro card instead of the 7900 gt

Well its better to have the 7.1 card for support. Also, not a lot of the 5.1 cards are very good quality, as all the quality ones are 7.1. For example all the X Fi's, which are basically the best, only support 7.1. plus its not much more.

I've never owned a mac, but i guess the pros are: looks, OS, Cons: a bit expensive, not many games play on them, etc.

if video editing and animation and photoshop are what you want, get a mac.

'course the software will cost more than your budget, you can always ***** them though, lmao
