I would like some help building a new pc as my old Dell dimension 9200 is about to die (5 years old).
I don’t know much about parts anymore, since the last PC I built goes back to 2003 so please bear with me.
I am a graphic designer so I need something that will be able to multitask smoothly between photoshop - illustrator - indesign at the same time with multiple tabs of web browser opened.
Also, I've been waiting for diablo III for a few years now, so a machine that will run that game smoothly falls into my criteria.
A priority for me is that it runs cool, no overheating. I’m willing to sacrifice a bit of power for a cooler machine.
Approximate Purchase Date: this month
Budget Range: 700-750$ (canadian)
System Usage from Most to Least Important: graphic design, web browsing, movies, light gaming (diablo 3)
Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.ca
Parts Preferences: none
SLI or Crossfire: no
Monitor Resolution: between 1920x1080, 1920x1200
Additional Comments: a quiet and cool machine good for multitask, and something to display good colors on a dell ultrasharp U2410.
I'm open to AMD though I don't know how good they are nowadays vs Intel
