why not get one of the new mac books? if you run bootcamp it'll be 100% compatible with both. i think it starts at 1,300 usd

1500 is a good budget, does that include display or do you have a display. For that budget with out a monitor, I would go with:


Gigabyte GA-X48-DQ6

Core 2 Quad 9400


8GB OCZ Platinum DDR2 1066

640GB Seagate SATA Hard Drive

2x 1TB Seagate SATA Hard Drives

Some ATX Mid Tower

Thermaltake 750W Power Supply

Pioneer DVR-216 SATA DVD-R Drive


~$1460 + shipping.


If you want to cut cost I would go with two 750GB drives. Also if you need cash for a monitor go with a P45 motherboard, and an E8500 Core 2 Duo. If you are running Windows XP 4GB of RAM might be enough. However, if you are doing visual effects 8GB of RAM kicks ass.


If you are looking for a monitor the 24inch Samsung 245T is great for high end, or the Samsung 24 inch 2443BWX is great on the low end.
