Yeah, so I am looking to make my own desktop and I was going to start but then I wanted to make sure I had everything right. I know about CPU and Motherboard sockets ect.... But I wanted to make sure I had the right things, I know somethings don't go to well together with others. Anyways here is what I am looking for.

I want to make a desktop that can handle Sony Vegas and Photoshop at least and probably more and I want to use it for dumping photos in and also as a general PC.

-Looking to spend around $600-800 dollars
-still trying to save some money.
-Look of case is not a big deal.
-Intel or AMD i will take either, prefer Intel but what ever
-Good Graphic card is a must
-RAM enough to run Vegas and something else without it slowing down my PC. I was thinking about 4 gigs of RAM don't know if thats to much
-XP or Vista doesn't matter.
- Hardrive I have a few externals but something around 120 or more will do.
-Need help on the little nick nacks like fan, power supply, motherboard.

Should I build one or would it be easier to buy one. Any help is much appreciated.
