Try to have as much ram as possible, 4 gigs is a good start.
Take a motherboard with sli/crossfire and buy 2 cheap cards that can support 4 monitors.
The cheapest intel dual core processor will probably do, but you can benefit from more power if you work with big images.
A Raid-system would be nice if working with print size pictures, preferably on some fast SSD discs :)

Hi

I'd suggest a workstation, perhaps from Dell, like:

http://www.dell.com/us/en/business/desktops/workstation-precision-t7500/pd.aspx?refid=workstation-precision-t7500&s=bsd&cs=04

The machine is configurable to whatever you want.  There are others.  But, check this out and let me know if you need further explanation.

I like the dell, question, is the xeon processor the one I want or the I 7?

So you have more than 2000$ budget? You should choose about 8-16 gigs of memory then and go with Windows Vista or 7.
Does that Dell system have support for 4 monitors?

Hey
I just ran accross some articles on a related question at Anandtech.  The articles are all in the CPU and Chipset section at this link:

http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/

In the final words of the one discussion, he make a couple a comment about the Xeon Turbo Mode that is interesting.  See it here:

http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/showdoc.aspx?i=3574&p=10

So, I'd probably go with the latest I7 available, unless the time is right for Intel to come out with something new in the Xeon line.

Checkout the articles and let's discuss it.

You really need to build your own, or have someone you know do it.  You will save a lot of money and get the perfect machine for your needs.  I just built one for myself and bought everthing from NewEgg.  I saved big bucks and the machine is a screamer.  I also like NewEgg for the reviews of the products, and the free shipping.  I would never go back to buying a whole machine from a company.
