    bro, long time no see liao...
    anyway might want to try the custom setup by videopro, they are priced around $500-$1000, can consider the lower end and then top up another $30 for a extra GB of ram and probably $100 for a dedicated graphic card if you do some gaming, else just leave it.

    can use the rest of the $ LCD... etc

    they are of cos not top of the class, but speedy enough to do processing on 10MP jpg with decent number of layer on photoshop

    At a budget of $1000.00 you can get a top notch one at Sim Lim Square.
    Do PM me if you need my help I'll package a spec for you.

    Cheers!

    If you have an older PC, you can still salvage the casing, DVD-Writer, mouse, keyboard, speakers and probably the hard disk as well.

    This leaves you enough money to purchase a motherboard, mid-range CPU (never buy the latest top-of-the-line CPU unless you are prepared to pay $$$$), at least 2GB of RAM and a new power supply unit. Why PSU you may ask? Older PSUs don't work well with Duo or Quad core CPUs.

    This will saves you at least $200.
