High-end PC Configuration for Graphic Design and 3D

Hi all,

I am looking to buy a PC mainly for Graphic Design and 3D works.
Most of my work is done on Adobe CS5. I am looking for something on a long term base.

If anyone would suggest me the configuration (motherboard, GPU, memory, etc) it would be great.

While building a PC is a time honored tradition, is that the goal or is getting the work done the real goal?

For fast desktops I suggest any of the quad or six core Intel i7 machines with 4GB RAM to start, Windows 7 64 bit and a nice graphics card. Start at the Nvidia GT220 with 1GB RAM and go up from there.

Thanks for the suggestions R

Well, my goal is to invest in a machine that get my work done basically ofcourse, and also that wouldn't require me to spend time and money on upgrading later (someday or the other time will come but...until then)

I am thinking of I7 CPU at the moment with least 4gbRAM, a good GPU ATI/MSI/NVidia. The problem is i have been outdated with all the new hardware avaiable in the market today. Motherboards, GPUs, dualGPUs etc.

Any bonus suggestion would help alot.

What I've been doing at the office.

We get the hp, dell, gateway with the basic box (i7, etc.) and pop in a new GPU. We're done in a flash and back to work. If you read these forums it's a shame that folk lose time with getting BIOS up to date, incompatible RAM or having to solve integration issues with their selections.
