Hey Everyone,
I am new to building PC's and I want to build a PC to play the newest edition of Flight Simulator, run Adobe Dreamweaver and Photoshop. I am hoping to spend less than $500. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Here's a DDR3 build with a 4850 video card.

If I were you I'd pitch in $35 more and get 4GB DDR3 and you'll be all set for a few years to come. 2GB is a little limited.

After rebates it comes to $522 which is about as cheap as your going to get with a video card that good with a DDR3 build.
