is that 600usd? what's your main purpose for the rig and if it's gaming, then what will be your desired resolution?

If you tell us your res we can help a lot more.

I'm sure since you have all those parts 600$ is a very easy goal. just reply with your resolution and I or someone else can spec you out the rest of your system.

Thats a resolution of 1600x900.

Going on the the fact that you are a graphic designer, an Nvidia GPU would suit you well. I belive Photoshop has GPU acceleration, therefore a PhysX enabled card would be best. I'd reccomend a GTS 450 or a GTX 460 if your budget allows.

With either of those cards, you'll get a substantial boost in GPU accelerated applications, while still more than enough power for occasional gaming. At that resolution, even the most demanding games will run buttery smooth.

A GTS 450 goes for around $75 (After MIR), while a 460 is around $150 max. An i7 2600k would be $320 (adjusted for price fluctuations and whatnot), and 8GB of RAM is essential for graphic design. An 8GB set of Corsair Vengeance RAM would run about $100 depending on where you buy. That brings the total up to $495.

That leaves about $100 for a mobo and PSU. You definitely don't want to skimp out on either of those. A quality Corsair 500W PSU should be more than enough. But that doesn't leave enough for a decent mobo. A good one would run about $50.

You might want to reconsider the i7 for perhaps an i5. In terms of gaming perfomance, you won't see any difference, but in terms of graphic design, I'm not sure how much those 4 extra threads would do. If you go with the i5 instead, you'd save another $100 which would net you a nice mobo go along with it.

Therefore, components is as follows:

i7 2600k - $315 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115070
Mobo - ???
RAM - Corsair Vengeance 8GB - $95 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233144
PSU - Corsair Builder Series 500W - $50 after MIR - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139027
GPU - GTS 450 - $75 (After MIR)- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814162062

Total cost before mobo = $535
Which leaves about $65 for a mobo - frankly, I wouldn't do it for that cheap. Either increase your budget to about $650-680 or rethink the i7.

Whew, that was a lot
