    Anyways it sounds like you really like doing this stuff so definitly go with what your gut tells ya. On a Side Note a PC still costs way less and has more options for Programs than a Apple Macintosh Computer has thanks to Windows and Linux ( Its more open environment than Apples enclosed Systems)

    Anyways What is the final Build You are going with, In all Honesty not everyone needs a Core i series system. What You had earlier has plenty of muscle to run Graphic Design programs, they tend to be more memory intensive though and with Windows 7s minimum requirements you can get by with 4 Gigs of Ram.

    Ive been a pro illustrator for many years. If you love art then don't do it professionally. The industry is just gonna beat you down to a soulless machine. I'm one of the few guys on this forum that gets paid to paint pictures.

    As for the Mac well there is NOTHING wrong with them. Most hate for them is out of ignorance. To each their own.

    Yeah, you're one of the lucky ones I guess. Thanks for the help, I appreciate it.

    And I don't know what it is about Mac, I just have never been a fan.

    I'm not sure, I'm drawn between two, and I really like the one suggested by Crazyeyesreaper. :confused:

    Honestly, I'd go with my last build where I combined the good parts of Crazy's build with the good parts of my build, then suggested some used parts from TPU's buy/sell/trade forum. That is the most bang for the buck suggestion made in this thread.

    I'd go with CrazyEye's suggestion, the extra cost is made up for with substantial performance gain :x
