      I have to administer 10+ servers, so I have no choice.

        Yes and I've also noticed that when Photoshop is open along with Dreamweaver something always get messed up marjorly.

        Oh and Winamp sometimes goes haywire for me too. I'm running v2.5 (really old version) and once in a long while my entire screen would get all messed up, with windows disappearing, buttons moving around my screen, etc...

          reduce the amount of allocated memory in photoshop's preferences that should help

              About a month ago, I built myself a
              AMD Athlon XP 1900, 512mb ram (1.5gb virtual memory), 40gb hd, Creative Audigy, Leadtek GeForce3 Ti200 - 128mb ddr, 6 total case fans - 4-88mm, and 2-120mm fans, Thermaltake heat sink - VOLCANO 7 -- all in an Antec 1040B case -- so my son's prying hands don't hit the power or open and close my drives 24/7 (the front door is lockable).

              I barely get over 120mb ram usage -- and hardly ever over 20% CPU usage -- using PhotShop.

              I don't know how some of you can have 50 million windows open at the same time... I get lost when I have 10 open.. jumping from one to another... drives me crazy! hehe

                easy.... increase the FSB - front side bus via motherboard jumpers or via the bios if the motherboard supports it

                my P4 1.6A is running at 2240 mhz right now FSB = 140 means 16 x 140= 2.24ghz

                            I couldn't really put a price on it all, as I never buy a whole computer, we (AP3D) just buy individual bits as and when for the current workstations, and eventually there are enough old bits to build new machines which can be used as render nodes, servers etc...
