Default Can someone please help me build a computer?

Okay. so i am looking to buy a computer. I am looking to spend between $1200-1800. I need it to be really powerful so i can run these programs without lag.
Sony Vegas Pro 8
Fruity Loops 8
Adobe After Effects CS4
Adobe Photoshop CS4

i dont really know much about processors and video and graffix cards and that stuff. It MUST be a Dell. i also want a 23inch + full HD monitor included in my price. also it MUST be Windows Vista.

Thanks to anyone who helps

We can get you a GREAT machine for that price (Well not WE, some other guys, I can only offer advice )
But the machine cannot be "Beast" for one reason, it is a DELL!
Why do you want a Dell?
It would be best for you to BUILD a computer, not buy.

Dell? Have someone build it for you.

Well to start you off...

Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 - Motherboard
Intel i7 920 - CPU
Corsair 6GB (3 X 2GB) 1600MHz - RAM
A Graphics Card

Plus 3 hard drives and a case of your choice.

Running Windows 7. I'd also run at least three 7200RPM hard drives. One for your OS and programs and the other two as streaming drives for your picture/video editing.

Get somebody to build it for you, or reconsider building it yourself.

For $1800 you can get a dream computer if you build it.

This.

I'm turning 19 and about to build my first from scratch, but only because now I have the money to :P

I've been assembling/disassembling, repairing & replacing computer parts since 15.

Never too early to learn.

Yeah I read up hundreds of pages on how to build it, and sure it helped but not much.
Learning to build a computer is like becoming a pilot, you can read up billions of books, but you will never learn if you don't try it.
Just go for the build, we will help you every step of the way
I will be able to give you advice, as the pros here will give out advice, but it won't be down to our level . I'll tell you what I learned during my first build and to watch out for certain things
