Time for a new rig, help me? (:

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a new PC, I would like to hear some suggestions as to what I should throw in my system. I have a budget of about $600-$1000.

I don't really do gaming, I have a PS3. (No comments)
I do Photoshop, Dreamweaver, and Flash from my Netbook. I would like to start doing some HD Video Editing, (Adobe After effects.) I would like to have an i5-2500k or i7-2600k. For OC. Its whatever you guys suggest. Its been awhile since I've build one for myself. Just tell me what parts to buy and I will buy them. The budget doesn't include a Keyboard, Mouse, Moniter, Cables, and Accessories. Budget is strictly for the Tower/parts. Thanks in advance

Just threw this together. Made it public, but apparently failed.

Drop the AMD Phenom II X6 and the 560 Ti and which together= $480ish

Grab yourself an AMD Phenom II X4 955: LINK ($120)
AN Asus brand GTX560: LINK ($200)
Price together: $320 (saved $160)

EDIT: Replace that PSU with the money you saved for this: LINK

Everything else above is great:

On both of those recommendations, also look for RAM deals whenever you order it...there's normally a great sale going on.
