Looking to add to my long list of computers. I have a Sun Blade 2500, a custom (by me) PC running a Xeon that I have just converted into a server, and a whole bunch of laptops. I am interested in building a new PC, mid tower, water cooling (plus many many fans), Xeon or HT P4, exellent motherboard, RAID (haven't decided which one yet) on 1 terr. (can be added at later date), around 1GB RAM, and all the other trimmings. Have about $2k (3 at most) to spend. This is going to be used for mainly photo editing. And please note, many high end graphic cards do not enhance 2D images so please, nothing extravagant here, definitely not a gamer at all.
Anyone interested in creating some sort of "fantasy" or otherwise good list for these guidelines, I'd love some suggestions. And even though I am willing to spend a significant amount, remember cost is of some issue. Thanks to all.
