    Im just hear for some advice. A friend has ask me to help her build/buy a new computer for her uni course. She has a £1000 for base unit, monitor, keybourd, mouse and speaks. This is plenty of money for the job. But im not 100% sure what gear is best for her.

    She is doing an architecture course at uni. Therefore she does alot of image work with photoshop and alot of work in CAD software. I more used to build machines for gaming and this is sightly different so thought I would ask here.

    What spec hardware would be important for her to be able to run all this stuff?

    Thanks for all your help

    i5 750, or a 1156 server chip might be better, then an i5 motherboard, and other than that the same as you'd use in an i7 rig... 2nd hand Dell Ultrasharp and speakers should see her right
