Hi,
I am looking for a desktop that I can run adobe photoshop with a number of large files open on, convert music cd into mp3, have some large word documents open, and search internet all running at same time.

From what I see, the fastest chips are the Quadcore, and some new ones running at 3.0 Ghz Current ones in affordable desktops are Q6600 chip, but only gives a speed of 2.4 and 1066 FSB.

Two machines I am looking at are
Philips HEPC 7501/05 which is 2.66 Ghz, and 1333 FSB
(but DUO core)

And

HP Pavilion M9070 which is 2.4 Ghz, and only 1088 Ghz
FSB Quad core

Any advice, or can you advice who could help me on
this one?

Also wondering whether to go with Vista or try to get
supplier to provide with XP.

Looking forward to hearing your advice

Dave

have a look at cyberpower.co.uk you can custom build a better system than those you have picked.
you can select a case and a psu. a quad core and 4g of memory. if you want 4g better to go for vista. 3g if you want xp. a graphics card of your choice. you can adjust things to suit your budget.

only Quad i can find at Cyberpower is the Q6600 which is only 2.4 Gh before overclocking with a FSB of 1066

The best spec desktop i have seen in a review is the Arbico Elite 8800GT SLI power desktop PC

This is a Quad core running at 3.0 before overclocking.

I am going to inquire if they will supply overclocked and with XP Pro instead of Vista.

Spec as follows

3GHz Intel Core 2 Duo E6850; Windows Vista Home Premium; 4GB DDR RAM; 500GB serial ATA; Asus P5N-E SLI; 8 x USB ports; 22in Hyundai X220W (0.282mm pixel pitch, 1,680x1,050 max resolution @75Hz); 2 x 512MB PCI Express Zotac nVidia GeForce 8800 GT; Creative SB X-Fi XtremeAudio; 5 x Cyber Acoustics CA5150; subwoofer; max DVD speeds: 20x/20x/12x/12x/6x/8x/12x/16x (DVD-R/+R/-R DL/+R DL/-RW/+RW/-RAM/-ROM); Ability Office; Ahead Nero; two-year return-to-base warranty; WorldBench 6.0 score: 118
