To Photoshop and illustrator users, help please

Hi guys.

My dad needs desktop for photoshop, and illustrator usage (at least cs3).
he's not in for gaming, but for only designing.
this has to do with his job, so he needs decent computer.
I was thinking of getting same pc for my dad, and what do you guys think???

I am currently using Acer ax3300-u1322
Processor: AMD Athlon II X4 Quad Core Processor 620 (2.60GHz, 2MB L2 Cache)
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
Memory: 4GB DDR3
Hard Drive: 1TB SATA
Graphics: Integrated NVIDIA GeForce 9200 (for mine, I upgraded to HD5570 LP graphic card)
Drive: 16x DVD +/- R/RW Super Multi Drive

(please see the following link for more detail.)

This one is one below level version, is this also good enough? because he wants to get cheaper one..

  1. Your links are broken.

    Anyways, list budget so we can spec one out for you. Also, is this for serious pro level work (as in this is really part of your dad's job) or not? Also, is he working with large RAW images, filters, etc?

    A better question would be, which IPS LCD to choose.
  2. Thank you for your response,

    I have updated the link,

    I am not sure I far, or how deep he has to go with his work,

    but what he does is designing a print on a shirt.

    like when you buy a clothes, there are like designs on them right?

    that's what he's working with. so I assume he does not need to make them into

    huge size like when you have to design stuff for like trade show and all.
