Hello All,

Need to build a $1000 system +- $200 to handle heavy graphics, (photoshop, photo editing, etc.). Would prefer to use an Intel based system, Windows 7, with a SSD for boot and separate drive for storage. Don't specifically need to Overclock, but would like very good graphics and response time when saving, opening, converting, etc. This computer will also handle an in-house network to communicate with all in house systems on the network. Will also use this computer to handle HD videos over the network to in house TV's, etc. Don't specifically plan on doing a lot of gaming on the system, but will do a lot of graphics. Thanks, any suggestions would be appreciated.

Cheers,
Happy Holidays
Deano

Swap the 6870 in my build to this GTX 560 just so you'll have a card with CUDA capabilities, honestly though, Photoshop doesn't do a whole lot utilizing CUDA. (+20)
