With some nice powerful components in this system, you would be hard pressed to know that from looking at just the outside.  The Antec Sonata has a presence of an office system case, but provides great cooling and allows for Core i7 processors with ease.  The ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 motherboard is one of our most popular motherboards chosen.  Paired with an NVidia GTS 250 and 12GB of DDR3 1333 MHz memory, this system is going to provide the best performance possible without breaking the bank.

    This is my computer. I got it to do one thing, and one thing only: run PhotoShop CS4. I've been using it for about two weeks, and it's great. It handles a 3GB layered tiff file as if it were a web-sized jpeg. Joe was great with his suggestions about the configuration. Every single suggestion was right on the money. This is the perfect machine for PhotoShop!
