Default Which components?? (HELP)

Hello everyone!
I have a AMD Pentium 4 2.1Ghz, 1GB RAM and a 6600GT but my little friend is getting a bit old (5years old) and I am thinking in buying a new computer! Can someone recommend which components should I buy? I play some games specially the last ones and I do a lot of image editing in Photoshop as I am a photographer, please please please help me! I dont have problems with money.

Thank you in advance

Right, personally I'd opt for an Intel Core 2 Q6600 G0 edition, which is a quad core and so won't need to be updated for quite a while.

For the graphics card, I'd pick up the Nvidia 8800GT which is a new card, and beats even the more expensive 8800GTS.

At least 2GB's of RAM will be needed also (2x 1gb for Dual Channeling), and there are many good manufacturers, so thats just a matter of taste.

Where abouts do you live? Like any online place in particular?
