I need a New PC for Photo Imaging

I have to replace my desktop PC which died yesterday. Here's an outline of what I'm looking for.

Give me two recommendations
1- No limit on price
2) Keep it under $1000.

1- Windows platform. I don't want to go through the pain of migrating from a Windows platform to an Apple platform

2- Performance is very important but not sure which processor can deliver.... i3, i5, i7?

3- I'm thinking I need 2x1TB internal hard drives. #1 for OS and files and #2 for images. I want them to be internal because I want the performance. Maybe this isn’t a good assumption?
4- 8GB RAM

5- I don't play games so I don't need a special graphics card.... I think that's correct
6- Lots to connect therefore lots of USB ports
7- Desktop is referable

thanks lds
