Build It: The Ultimate Adobe CS4 Machine

PC Mag: "Adobe Creative Suite 4 has been out for a while, and it's been widely praised, not the least by us. It's a great piece of software-provided you've got the hardware to run it. That got me thinking: If money were no object, what would the ultimate CS4 system be? Well, by lucky coincidence, I work in a lab equipped to answer just that type of question. So I set out to build a PC that would wring the maximum benefit out of Adobe's powerful multimedia suite.

Given that CS4 and Open GL go together like chocolate and peanut butter, I decided on a gaming motherboard that could support Open GL. Enabling it gives the smooth pan-and-zoom features that allow CS4 power users to get the most out of graphics-intensive apps like Photoshop. Since we're looking for the ultimate system, I grabbed our current favorite mobo, the $240 (street) ASUS P6T and popped in the top-of-the-line 3.2-GHz Intel Core i7 965 Extreme processor ($1,075 street)."
