This is my first build as I stated. Will be used mostly for PhotoshopCs3, IllustratorCs3, and Painter. General use and light gaming. I have no need for playing them on high settings, nor do I want to play Crisis. Budget is $600.

Just wondering if everything will work together fine. Which motherboard is the best choice. If the PSU will be sufficient. Planning on running Vista Basic 64(also in the budget). Current PC is a Dell Dimension 1100 lol. So nothing really salvageable from it other than the hard drive, which I plan on slaving in the new rig, and the monitor.
Not hard set on anything other than wanting to use AMD. As I understand I will get the most from them in my price range.
