1gb is perfectly fine for photoshop. And as you say, if thats all she does, hell, she doesn't even NEED dual core.. getting it just means she can multi-task the hell out of it and not have to slow down... Maybe you should get here a WD Raptor drive... since she wont have a fancy GPU or anything.. mmm... raptor...speeeeeeed

Oh and the D975XBX does come in a very pretty box i cant seem to throw the box away... its really sexy (well if a mobo can be sexy... this one is) lmao

Thanks for all the input y'all...

Intel makes rock solid motherboards. 945P will do justice.
