More about : photoshop blu ray build 1000 budget dpaul8 December 8, 2009 8:08:53 AM I would recommend you get either a ASUS P7P55D PRO or Gigabyte P55-UD4P motherboard, a 650 W or higher power supply (Antec TP650 or Corsair 650HX), and two sets of these RAM modules: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Photoshop will use the 8 GB of memory. Tom's Hardware has an excellent article on choosing memory for a P55 motherboard: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/core-i7-870-1156,24... snurp85 December 8, 2009 4:16:16 PM For your CPU, if you live near a microcenter, but it from there for $235. I second the vote for Gigabyte's P55-UD4P Mobo. For the cooler I would recommend the Xigmatek Rifle Cooler - $45 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Corsair CMPSU 650 Watt Power Supply - $70 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Antec 300 Case - $55 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
