I started doing Video work with my new DSLR and I do alot of post processing like HDR stuff, I use Photoshop Elements 8 right now but I'd like to upgrade to CS4 too.
I will never play any heavy games that take alot of processor power, My MB is one of the last XP Athlon boards that was any good and it can't be replaced so If It goes I'm without a system.
My main system now.
Antec LanBoy case
EXOS Watercooling series II
