I have selected an DP55WG motherboard and 8GB of RAM, does this sound like a suitable system for a graphic designer creatin 2D and 3D images?
Can you offer any tips on the type of graphics card I should be looking for?
Is an 800w PSU suitable for this system?
Yes,8GB RAM along with Intel Xeon x3440 can handle CS5 perfectly fine.
As for VGA,well it depends, are you going to play games too ? if so then on what resolution ?
and as mi1ez mentioned,800W+ is probably overkill,unless you want to use 2 high-end cards in SLI/CF
