Planning a new cool computer. I will install 64-bit Windows 7 on it and work with graphic software like Photoshop and 3ds max (and of course, play some games). How much ram do i need? I was sure that 4 gb would be enough, but still want to make sure

Depends on what your budget is. Ideally, if you had $1,200 or so, you could get an i7-930 with 6 GB of RAM.

4 GB is "enough", but depending on how much you use Photoshop and other non-gaming programs, you would likely see some benefit from more RAM (8 GB for AMD/i5/i7-8xx or 12 GB for i7-9xx).
