Hello,
Researching for my first build. I would use this pc for AutoCAD, Revit, Adobe, and gaming. I don't mind paying a little extra for reliability and quality. My budget is $2000 give or take. As I said, first build. I'd like to attempt OC, and I'm curious about the ram speed. If there are any issues or improvements that can be made, I'm open to ALL suggestions.

Spend a little more and get a GTX 570, GTX 580 or 6950 or 6970

Check this HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


there's like a dozen different manufacturers of all these video cards....any of them particularly better? Would I be better off buying one really good card or trying this "dual" thing? I could afford another $200 for graphics. So about $400 graphics budget.
