    now seriously.. I generaly recommend a Sweetspot machine ..that is where the Specs are 80% of the bleeding edge.. but cost a min of half of the wallet drain.. you may need to spend a bit more on the video card and ram (

    A Intel P4 2.8G or 3G CPU
    1024Gb ram
    80gb HDD min
    Video card.. min 128Mb ram (as for chips sets either are as good.. ATI 9600 or nVidia 5600/5800)
    and a good 21"LCD. monitor.. (honest though.. 19" CRT is cheaper..but LCD is easier on the eyes.. and a 17"lcd is the same viewable size as the 19" CRT)
    Make sure you have the good stuff in a good well airconditioned case


    Cheers

    BTW.. I did joke about the 21" LCD.. didn't correct when I changed the post to sensable

    Does he really need the flat panel? Personally I see no reason to go the extra 700 for a flat screen 21" over a crt. CRT's have faster refresh rates, which doesn't affect graphics editing too much, but does effect games quite horribly. Space is the only reason I see to go with LCD's at this time.. Unless you just have money to spend, then it makes sense. I would rather save that 700 and get a 6800 or x800

    Indeed, how advanced? Any 3D rendering involved? Or just photoshop?

    If you want good quality graphics software and have the cash to spend go for a PowerMac/PowerBook.
