Be grateful if you guys could have a quick look at my below build. Plan on using it for gaming (starcraft 2, dragon age, NO FPS needed). I will also be using for doing work at home, im an architect so will be only using it for Autodesk Revit and AutoCad and potentially 3DS Max in the future. A little use of Photoshop too.
I already have Win7 64Bit and a new HP ZR24w screen.
Any advice greatly appreciated. Please let me know if i should change anything etc.

i thought the Asus Crosshair IV Formula was CF enabled.
i have been to'ing and fro'ing between either the 5850 or GTX460 and came to the conclusion that in terms of £££ v performance, the GTX was the better option. Now i know that the board is not SLi compatible, but i really dont plan on getting a Sli or Crossfire setup.
