I am looking into buying a computer from Ironside computers. I do not have a lot of knowledge when it comes to computers so I cant build my own but I don't want to just walk into Best Buy and pick one. I am not a gamer, only play wow and Sims 3, but I am in school for graphic design so I will be needing something that can run Adobe Creative Suite. I have to keep it under 1000 and found this one....please tell me what you think.
And athlon II X3 450 3.2Ghz
2x210mm sickleflow fans
coolermaster hyper 212
ash's m5a97sata 6Gb/s 3.0
8Gb (2x4Gb) DDR3 1333Mhz
1tb 7200 1GB
and radeon 7770 1Gb
700 watt power supply
Also I have used Windows 7, still prefer xp but hows Windows 8?
Please dont buy that for 1000 dollars, if i were you i would take the chance and build one. There are many video tutorials online that can make building a computer very Simple. And you can build one so much better then that.
This one was actually 800. What is wrong with it? Is it all crap? I really do not feel comfortable building my own. I know how to google a problem when I have one but ask me to point out anything other than the graphics card and fan and I am at a loss. I really need it put together for me.

Thank you both for your suggestions! They both sound great. I noticed that the computer from newegg does not say what cooling it has, will I have to add one? Now if I go with the second prebuild. Hows that graphics card? I remember reading something about the poor preformance with the 650. I don't remember if it was that one or the ti. Anyhow, I don't need an os so I can spend that money elsewhere. What is better to upgrade for what I need? Processor or graphics card?
