How about a good memory card reader? I'd like a 9 in 1, or even a 15-1 to cover it all. Forgot to mention I will be using photoshop a lot. I'm getting my order together. Thanks

Alright i've read through this thread now and I think some of you are missing something. Alot of you selected intergrated graphics or a very low end card. If you choose Vista you are going to want a half decent video card to enjoy vistas features like aero.

would this suit your needs? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820176005

It looks like it just plugs into a USB header on your motherboard, but i can't be sure.

This one i know will work tough. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820302003

Oh, thought you were needing to get it, lol
But yeah for anyone else that needs photoshop that is a good alternitive.
and yeah that card mammi put will play any game in the area of graphics level you have put well.
If you want to spend A little more:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102084
for a radeon
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150202
for the Nvidia
but the card he posted is great so I would go with that.

i think a 7600GT will fit his needs well there around 100$ and doom 3 runs really well on them along with newer games
