APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: within the next 2 weeks
BUDGET RANGE: $600 US After Rebates
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Audio Recording, Photoshop, General Internet
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: i guess newegg.com but I'm open to anything that you say is reliable
PARTS PREFERENCES: AMD, but besides that I'm open to anything. I don't need a video card either, though obviously one wouldn't hurt if it fits in budget. Thats a low priority for me though.
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: most likely not
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: i dont really care about cosmetics of this thing at all, no fancy case needed. i just need lots of speed from the processor and a good HDD, if it's cheap i'll get a second hdd. overall im entirely new to this and open to ALL ideas. thanks for the help in advance!
