that's pretty solid build at a good price. But I just reread the 2nd page and saw that you have $1k budget?? sheesh, then you'd better just go with sandy bridge for future proof and bragging rights

I highly suggest finding a better case.... the Antec 900 is great for airflow.... thats about it. Antect cases are a pain to work in... the drive bays are horrible design. There are better cases out there for cheaper! Check out the CM690II Advanced or the CMHAF912. Even some NZXT cases in that range are better then the Antect900.

i don't know any games that benefit more than 4gb of ram, maybe gta 4 but not sure. but if you do photoshop than 8gb is recommended.

that'd be fine, the ram should help a lot in those tasks since it's low latency
