Hi All, 1st time posted but i hope you can help

I've built PC's before but i'm doing my 1st over clocking PC and need advice on what works with what and what not to buy

I've got a max budget of €600 - The PC is for 3D design and using 3Ds Max and Photoshop. ( It's only a hobby not a pro)

I'll be buying from as it's the cheapest i've seen,

I going with the following

I want to overclock this from 2.8 to about 3.5 on the stock fan, I've see some vid's showing this to be possible.

AMD Phenom II X6 1055T cost €158

ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 cost €80

RAM: I wanted 8 gig But not sure what to get. As i said above I'll be doing design work and rendering images/movies. I dont want to spend over €90 on RAM. So suggestion welcome.

Power supply. I was thinking about 600watts ?

GPU - I need something with HDMI- I wont be using this for gaming just design so I dont need a massive GPU

Any help would be great.

Below is a finished order I was thinking of buying. But not buying anything till i hear from the Pros ;)

hie ich würde dir gern helfen ;)  Und auf Deutsch gehts ja einfacher..
also mit einem Amd Prozzi bist du nicht schlecht dran mit Preis/Leistung
MoBo is auch okee aber wieso brauchst du 8 gb Ram? Als GraKa würd ich dier diese empfehlen:
mit netzteil kommst du glaub ich gut hin

I'd like 8 gig ram for the rendering of 3d images and clips

I dont think i'd need a GPU that powerful as I wont be gaming

Fürs Rendern brauchst du nicht viel Arbeitsspeicher, sonder eine gute CPU und GPU
Mite der GraKa würd ich in diesem fall eine von der fire pro serie nehmen..

well since i cant understand what he is say ill will tell you this. 3ds max will use as much memory as you can give it. so i would recomend spending a little more and gettign dual 4gb modules so in the future you can upgrade to 16.

A good gpu with also keep you from having to use wireframe in 3ds max and that gpu is as powerful as my laptops and it has trouble with larger files. its not impossible to work on large files with that gpu but it would be better with a better gpu. consider a lower end workstation gpu as they are designed better for these type programs. they are more expensive but definitely better.

try this. alittle more expensive but much better.
