System Usage from Most to Least Important: Digital Imaging (Photoshop, Manga Studio, Illustrator, Indesign), gaming, video editing, word processing, general internet surfing/video watching, heavy multitasking
Parts Preferences: by brand or type (e.g.: I would like to upgrade to Intel CPU)
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe
Your Monitor Resolution: 1920 x 1080
Additional Comments: Would prefer a quiet pc. Need to be able to multi-task (i.e. photoshop, streaming, video, voice chat, browser--handling multiple images being open and/or edited at the same time). Would love some advice on a CPU fan and on the build
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I am a digital illustrator and a student and need a new work station. My current computer is a pre-built dell from staples and the year and a half I've owned it have been nothing but a hell of replacing failing parts. I've learned my lesson and want to make my own build. I need something that can handle large image files as well as gaming.
