I plan on setting up a pc for some graphics/digital art. I will be using corel painter 11 and Adobe photoshop CS3. I do not wish to use Mac. I would like to know the best possible configuration for a PC hardware to do digital artworks.

Processor: Core i7 950
RAM: 4 GB for starting (more 4GB module if not sufficient)
Mother Board: Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R http://www.pricewatch.com/gallery/motherboard_combos/i7-950
And a specious cabinet :)
To add on to the post above, processor is extrememly imprtant.  Photoshop really relies on your processor.
