Can anybody out there help me find a a mobo, vid card, and cpu combo for me????

I'm new to comp building.


I'm looking for a mobo, vid card, and cpu combo for my first build. I use photoshop, illustrator, flash, and blender 3d heavily. I want to have three 22" samsungs setup and a 6.1 sound system hooked up through an optical/ digital connection setup by the winter.

What I have bought so far...
500 gig seagate http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

antec case and psu http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

my dvd drive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

my ram http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I plan on running vista 95% of the time, and i plan on installing xp, and linux also.

I also want to overclock as much as possible for my budget.

Any input or links here would be greatly appreciated. thx

CPU: Q6600
Mobo: P5Q-E
Video Card: ATI 4850

I'm not sure of the prices, but should fit in that budget.

q6600 or e8400 for cpu, 4850 defintely, and I suppose the p5q-e is good, never tried it myself, but any p35 or p45 board should do fine (quad for long term gaming or short or long term video editing, dual for short term gaming but not long term, or if supreme commander happens to be your favourite game)
