You can save $40 bucks getting a cheaper board. There's a biostar board with USB 3.0 and sata 3 for $60 on today's newegg's shellshocker (3:00pm - 6:00pm PST) the board name is TA870U3+. Together you saved quite a few for a better CPU



600w is plenty for this setup. You should get the 1055t with the extra money because it'll help you pretty much with photoshop
Thanks bro, I didn't see that deal for that 5870 will probably go with that. I would go with that mobo but unfortunately I have a mATX case so I need a mATX mobo :\\. Thanks for the tips tho +rep

CPU - AMD Phenom II x6 1055t - $170

RAM - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) - $44.99

Swap out the generic RAM for this Team Xtreem series RAM which is pretty decent. Much better than generic speeds/timings for same price.

Did you notice my suggestion with the 6850 on the other page at all though?
