Memory: Corsair 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600
GPU: GT 440 - 1GB DDR5* - If you can squeeze a GTS450 in there, do it. The 440 will be overkill already for just basic use / photoshopping. But the 450 would be better if you wanted to game on it ever.
Storage: Samsung SpinPoint F3 1TB - Try to squeeze a Crucial M4 64GB SSD in the build along with this Samsung F3 1TB. You'll LOVE the speed increase.
Optical: Asus DRW-24B1ST
Case: Antec One Hundred not available, cheapest Antec is Plus 660 AMG - See if you can find an NZXT or Rosewill case for cheaper. They make GREAT bang for your dollar cases.
PSU: Antec EarthWatts Green 380W Not available
ANTEC VP-450
ANTEC NeoECO 520W
ANTEC Earth Watts 500W
Rosewill Hive-550 550W
ANTEC NeoECO 620W
(sorted by price; Only one Rosewill available here)
- All of the above PSU's are solid quality PSU's and will handle your build with ease. Pick the cheapest.
Display: Acer G235HAbd - If doing some SERIOUS Photoshopping, you'll want an IPS panel. Not sure what display to recommend, but I know Dells are almost always IPS.
Speakers: Logitech Z523 - Blargh! We can do better than that! Can you find some good studio monitors by chance? I think the Z523 setup is about a $70 PC speaker setup...so probably not. Hmm, you could look into the Creative T3130's. They should be cheaper and sound a little cleaner.
Keyboard: Logitech K200 - A keyboard is a keyboard. But honestly, once you go mechanical, you won't go back. I can't wait to afford one myself. If you want a GREAT keyboard, you're looking at around $100 USD or more. Otherwise, what you've picked is fine. Your call there.
Mouse: Logitech M505 - Personal preference on mice honestly. I love my Logitech MX310. Pick a mouse that fits YOUR hand.

Total $1.095

Why not instead put together a complete build for the guy using your edits/knowledge that'll come in below the $1,100 (his currency) maximum budget?

Because I have no clue where he's shopping at, seeing as how his profile says he's from Indonesia. If he were in the US, I'd be all over it.

And yet somehow this US citizen managed to do it; an untrained Gorilla can pull prices and links from Newegg.

I just tried.....really really hard. Without proper specifications, and knowing the currency, I can't do it. Somehow I ended up with $9.xxx.xxx, when his original build was around $1.1xx.xxx. No clue how that happened, because I didn't even have a keyboard, mouse, and a monitor on it.....and it was cheaper equipment.

Yeah, without knowing how those sites worked and being able to read it, I can't do it.

I found an old psu, brand new never used APEX AL-A400ATX 400W that I bought a long time ago. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817154013

Will this work for the new system? Or will I be better off getting the Corsair 430CXV2EU or Antec VP-450?

The AL-A400ATX looks to have good reviews just not sure if it will be enough power?
Between the Corsair 430CXV2EU or Antec VP-450 I see the Corsair to have more good reviews compared to the Antec.

If I could use the Allied PSU, I could use the extra $ for some other components.

That apex power supply is a joke.
No way i'd use it for a new build.

How much more is the neo eco? it is a much better unit than the cx & vp lines. If you MUST choose between the corsair cx or antec vp, get the cx. It has a lower capacity but higher efficiency and quality.

I'd get rid of the graphics card and upgrade to a 2500k. If you aren't gaming than you don't really need more than onboard anyway. Just make sure you get a z68 board so you can overclock AND use onboard video.

good to know that, i won't be using the apex then. i just saw on the newegg the rating is quite high.

the Neo Eco 520 is about $20 more than the 430CXV2, about $10 more than 500CXV2. is it worth it to get the Neo Eco 520? If the CX is quite good (430 or 500?) then perhaps I could use the difference in $ toward other components.

What is the onboard graphic on the Asus P8Z68-V/Asus P8Z68-V LE? Is it more than enough for latest Photoshop+Premiere?

i think i'm pretty much sure in going with the i5-2500k now...

The onboard graphics are on the CPU, not the mobo now
I don't know for sure, but i think most work in photoshop is still done on the cpu, so a 2500k would be better than 2100+gt240. Though I haven't used photoshop since version 7(i use Gimp now, much cheaper ).

As for the power supply... i'd get the neo eco, $20 doesn't seem like much considering it will probably be the last power supply you buy in a while. If you know for sure you will never be putting a bigger graphics card in(any card requiring pci-e power connector) than the cx will be fine, but if you want some future proofing, than the neo eco would be the smart choice.

Edit: the apex power supply has so many reviews because newegg has been selling it since 2003. An 8 year old PSU that wasn't exactly high end when it was NEW, yeah no way that's gonna be good for a sandy bridge rig.

thanks a lot... will the 430cx will be good enough if i put gt440/gts450 on the system? if yes, i can put the $ toward something else first, afterward if there's more i can upgrade the psu to the neo eco before purchasing the whole thing.

i'm pretty sure i'm getting the discrete video card. i don't think the onboard is up to snuff to anything beside office stuff/browsing...
