One of my friends is looking to build a workstation PC for $ 1000, and wants the AMD firepro v5900 GPU in it, but he doesnt know what other parts he should get for it, any recommendations? its okay to go alittle over $1000. He does alot of rendering and photoshop.

Is the HD 7950 as good as or better than the firepro v5900 for rendering?

What about the case, he doesnt need an SSD, and only needs 2 TBs of storage, what case would you recommend? Also its okay to go alittle over 1000 bucks, 1100 is good.

Ok then you can remove one 1TB HDD... but keep the SSD coz it helps a lot in bootup and faster rendering....
and add this CPU cooler to your item list
