I know you said you don't like nvidia but this EVGA 1GB GTX 460 is only $10 more, has a big rebate, Performs better than the 6790, and includes Photoshop Elements 9.

I would Highly recommend getting that instead. (And someone correct me if I'm wrong but I thought nVidia had some features that Adobe needs like CUDA or something?)

Yeah, you're right, the new CS5 series prefers Nvidia, but I've been using it with ATI and I haven't had any problems. Maybe I'll give Nvidia another try. It's quite a while since I've had one of their cards. Thanks, that's a nice build. Actually, that build would be even less, because I'm reusing the 1.5TB and 500GB HDDs from my last PC (Rest In Peace).

Well then, if you want 5Ghz, scratch the Xiggy Balder and use one of the following:

Thanks, PowerTrip, I'll probably go with the Silver Arrow. Now, I kinda want my new build to be MacOS capable, so what motherboard would you recommend that work with OSx? I've decided on the i5 2500k as my CPU.
