Thread Starter 
Made a thread before but haven't had much response. Looking for someone who can give possible improvements to the build stated below, as well as an Intel equivalent processor to the AMD one also stated below. Note: I have a Billion BiPAC 7300N (300mbps) wireless router & modem (in one) and wiring isn't an option at the moment. Usage: I will be using the rig to moderately game, use high levels of layers (50 - 100 at any given time) in Photoshop CS5, build websites in Dreamweaver CS5, create animations in Flash CS5 and small video/movie projects in Aftereffects CS5 and Premiere Pro CS5. I will also have the entire Master Collection CS5 installed and will obviously use this for basic day-to-day things.

Dude, it hasn't even been an hour since you made the other thread, and the last reply was <5 minutes ago. Did you even read the responses?

It looks okay I guess, but for $2500 I'd damn well sure I'd have something better than a 6870. You could probably save a few bucks by going with the 1090T, they have a similar overclocking potential. Also you'd have an easier time overclocking with 2x 4GB RAM sticks instead of 4x 2GB.

What are they like price wise? I am trying not to exceed $2500.00 AU.
If necessary, I will cut the second monitor, which then gives me $200.00 AU to spend upgrading something else.

Fractal R3 Quiet Case <-- Good choice, other option would be Corsair 650D when it comes out

Aftermarket Heatsink (NOCTUA NH - C14) <-- Good choice

Antec 850W Power Supply <-- I seen many people saying Antec PSU's suck. I recommend trusty Corsair's or Seasonic and Coolermaster silent Pro. NZXT PSU good too.

AMD 3.3Ghz Hex-Core 1100T <--1100T waste of money, get 1090T, up the multiplier to acheive 1100T speed

2GB DDR3 1600Mhz Ram x 4 (8GB) <--You say you doing photo editing, 2x4Gb better for future upgradability

G.Skill Phoenix 120GB SSD <--Dont know about that, so cant comment.

ATI HD 6870 1GB <-- Good for moderate to high gaming

Gigabyte SB785 Mobo (USB 3, SATA 3) <-- Dont know, cant comment

1TB Samsung F3 Hard Drive + Additional 2TB (3TB total) <-- Yep, F3's proven good

Windows 7 64 Bit <--
TPLINK WN951N 801.11NL - Wireless network card (300mbps)

2 x BENQ 24" Full HD 1080p monitors

Microsoft wireless keyboard & mouse (800 series)

Although I do recommend 6950 rev.1 if you have the money which can be unlocked to a 6970 which is great value to money.

Agree with beers, 1090T gives you same performance for less price.

If you want save a few bucks, change the PSU for 750W and RAM for 2x4GB with low CL since AMD love the low timings.

@ Beers, yes I did read and respond to the post in my previous thread - and am awaiting responses. Could you suggest a better card then the 6870 baring in mind my budget etc. As I said I can cut the second monitor which gives me another $200.00 AU to play with if necessary. And I surpassed the RAM overclocking thought - so thank you for bringing that up!

Thanks for reviewing the specifications! For the power supply/fans/cooling etc I really desire something quiet! I am aware that the save I have stated has inbuilt noise reduction properties, but I need super quiet fans & power supply. Are Corsairs really quiet?

AX's are tend to be quiet when not under much load.

Seasonic's are the best in quietness I think.
