since i have problems with my computer, and its pretty old. im planning to buy a new CPU only, i need advice on what specs should i buy. im a web programmer and these are the following softwares i use.

1. adobe photoshop cs3
2. dreamweaver 8
3. adobe flash cs3
4. adobe after effects

these are softwares that require large memories, so i need some specs thats just right to run them, im also looking at the processor, if i should use AMD or Intel.

What is your budget? And Do you want to build the PC yourself or do you want it prebuilt?

We need to know what motherboard you have as you can't just drop any CPU into any mobo.
