  1. I have recently seen this configuration in another post, regarding a PC for work and some photoshop:

    CPU: Intel Core i3-3220 3.3GHz Dual-Core Processor ($123.79 @ Amazon)
    Motherboard: ASRock B75M-DGS Micro ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($59.98 @ SuperBiiz)
    Memory: G.Skill Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($39.98 @ Outlet PC)
    Storage: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($58.98 @ Outlet PC)
    Video Card: PowerColor Radeon HD 7750 1GB Video Card ($83.98 @ Newegg)
    Case: NZXT Source 210 (White) ATX Mid Tower Case ($29.99 @ Newegg)
    Power Supply: Antec 450W ATX12V Power Supply ($39.99 @ Mac Mall)
    Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer ($21.98 @ Newegg)

    Monitor: Asus VS239H-P 23.0" Monitor ($174.99 @ Best Buy)
    Keyboard: Logitech MK120 Wired Slim Keyboard w/Optical Mouse ($16.89 @ Amazon)
    Total: $740.53

    I am not sure if it would be enough for image processing as well. Maybe I should get a better processor or a better graphics card, or both?

    Thanks in advance

  3. I wasn't sure if u wanted to go down in price, or stay at 2000 mark, so i made a system about half way.
  4. Thank you very much.

    I will take your configuration as a start point. Maybe I will change processor and motherboard for some without overclocking capabilities (as I do not plan to overclock) and I will look for a wider monitor (maybe 24" or even 27").

    Thanks again.
