I recently started my own photography business and need to upgrade my computer. I edit on Photoshop CS5. I have around $500-600 to spend on a computer and monitor. What would I need! HELP!

Because there is so little info it's really hard to say (in fact I would not have commented, but your livelyhood is at stake) what you need. Can you give us the specs on the system you are currently using? Next, I need you to fill out this form: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/274745-31-step-step-g... It may seem redundant, but there is important info we need. I can tell you right now that if you want to get serious with editing you should probably bump your budget to $1000. But we shall see. ashess July 5, 2011 12:48:10 AM Got an iMac! Hubby upped my budget! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
