My Cousin is a Photographer By profession, but he knows very little about computers other than photoshop, and itunes. his current desktop is a 3 year old costco speacil . He asked me to build him a new rig, but i have been out of the loop for a while. I had some ideas as far as the system went; Geforce 8800GT, 4g of ram, WD Raptor 150g and two WD 400g sata's. What i am wondering about is who has the best processor for his needs. Are the new quads worth the money? Is intel the way i should go? also any other suggestions for a Photography Rig would be appreciated. I am trying to keep it under ~$1250.
