BUILD HELP! build under 2K

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey all, doing my first PC build, need some pointers and advice, trying to keep under $2000 and looking at doing CAD/Photoshop/Video editiing. I want it to keep me going for the next 3 years. I will be using it also for day job (work from home) so I want it to just keep going! I like my music also, hence the sound card.

Main questions are - best video card??
Power supply right?
How do I pick a case?

Intel Core i7 2600K Processor LGA1155 3.4GHz CPU $325
ASUS P8Z68-Deluxe DDR3 Intel 1155pin Motherboard $308
G SKill 8G(2x4G)DDR3 2133Mhz PC3-17000(F3-17000CL11D-8GBXL) $109

Seagate SATA3 2TB Barracuda 64mb Cache* $78
Card Reader $15

Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium PCIe, Win 7 PCIE* $99
Cooler Master Hyper TX3*24

You want a case with good cable management and good cooling. From what i heard, good cases are the CM CM690 Advanced II and the CM HAF X PSU seems fine. Don;'t know much about them though, but i personally prefer the corsair series, though that might be biased.
What i know, the GPU should work. Also, I think it would be better to use the Crucial m4
