Approximate Purchase Date: This week

Budget Range: 500-700 dollars

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Adobe CS5, Maya, Games(Can it be configured to run Arma 2?)

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor, OS, Speaker

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg and Amazon

Country: United States

Parts Preferences: For CPU, AMD or Intel doesn't matter for me, as long as I can work with lag free. For GPU, I prefer Nvidia over ATI because I heard the CUBA technology works great with Photoshop but I'm not sure.

Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Yes, but I just need 1 GPU for now.

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 or 1920x1200

Additional Comments: I have a laptop with Intel i7 Q720 1.6Ghz CPU but Photoshop CS5 brush lags too much, while the CS3 doesn't.

Thank you.
