It's been four years and I think it's time to upgrade my PC

Current 32 bit Vista 4 gigs of ram (DDR2 SDRam AT 800 MHZ-4X1GB,X 3 internal terabyte drives (non Raid)

First drive for programs

Second for Media

Third for backup, plus I backup system to an external HD.

Photoshop not performing optimally.

I am out of the technological development loop.  Have been told switching to solid state drives will improve performance.

Would appreciate suggestions for an optimal Photoshop machine.

My current system is a Dell XPS420 Q6600 (2.40 GHZ), DCT, 8MB, 375W PS...has two dvd drives in it, one blu-ray (which I've never used for blu-ray.

One bay has card readers in it.

Can I rebuild in this cpu case?

Video card ATI Radeon HD3800 series video card
