Okay what I need is something that will be capable of running Adobe, AutoCad and another art program, burn DVD's, Play iTunes music and work two separate Monitors all at the same time without breaking a sweat.

Do you have a budget? Can't really say anything without a budget.

You said you needed advice, do you have something to start with or go on?

$2,500 is a solid budget. You can get a ton with that. Does that include the monitors?

Why a GTX580? To burn money? Why not a GTX570 and OC a little if needed you can save around 160€, i agree with the 2600K and 6gb ram should be enough, go with a board of your taste for it. Get a quality PSU 750-850w. Maybe a SSD for boot drive. Give us something to work with what is your idea? Do you need monitors? Case?

Sandy bridge is dual channel. So 2x4gb ram would be the best option.

Well you can spend next to nothing for a computer to do what you said. You will need to spend a whole lot more one to do it quickly.

Sorry, i forgot that sandy bridge don't work with triple channel. yeah, 2X4GB.

So, tell us, do you need the basic combo (proc/mobo/ram/PSU), or do you need a complete PC (monitor, keyboard, mouse, case...) ??

Everything but a keyboard and mouse. Has to do all that fast and not lag up. If you can give me model numbers or links to parts so I can check them out. If someone could do bottom line build that can do all that fast and someone build a top line up near 2,500 that would be great so I could compare differences and choose. I appreciate all the help from all of you.
