Have an old rig at home in Sweden and am going to buy and build a new one in Switzerland (gf works there)
I spend half my time at home and half at my gf, since I work from home it doesn't really matter where I do the working from.
The laptop just doesnt cut it anymore so therefore Im building a new rig.
I want to upgrade my rig at home as much as possible by switching components between the old and the new rig.
I work with Photoshop, Illustrator & Cinema 4D (3D rendering) and only do a little gaming now and then.
I use 3 LCDs (HP LP2065, 20") so I need 2 GFXcards.
I don't know if my choices are good and would be grateful for any input, but would prefer a motivation why component X is better than component Y if possible.
Thankful for any input!
Red = Components in rig at home Green = New components to by in Switzerland Blue = New components to by in Switzerland or Sweden when I come back

if you oc your q9450 you might want to get ram over 1000mhz and look at timings ram over 1000mhz will have timing as low as 5 but overall its faster then 800 mhz with a timing of 4. it looks like good builds. your motherboard wont bottleneck the video card to bad. in games a 16x slot compared to a 4x slot there will be like a 3% difference in fps if you already have the board and dont want to return it. then don't worry about it unless you think you can really use that extra 3% fps
