My budget for the new computer is:


  • Under $800.00 is fine but I'm willing to be flexible as long as I get the perfect computer for my needs. 

What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? 

  • Digital Art programs.

What software do you intend on using on the computer? 


  • Corel Painter, Photoshop, Paint Tool Sai,

Do you play games? If so, what type of games? 

  • Sorry I don't play games.

Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it? 


  • No I tend to be pretty bad at multitasking but I'll mainly have Painter and Photoshop running at the same time.

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?

  • Nope.


Extra: I'm looking for a good monitor, preferably LED.  Laptop or regular PC is fine (though something with a large monitor is brilliant.)


If anybody could help me I will greatly appreciate it.

Asus CM6870-US-3AB - It has a powerful i7 processor which Photoshop and the other programs would definitely benefit from plus there is 16GB of ram which is more then enough and you will probably never need to upgrade since it is more then enough and it has large 2TB hard drive for storing all of projects.


Asus PB238Q - This monitor uses an IPS panel which is much better then the standard TN panel which is used in a lot of monitors today. The advantages is the colours are consistent and accurate at all viewing angles, colour accuracy and clear images.
