New system for performing operation cad/photoshop.

I am looking at building a new desktop, I do a decent amount of AutoCad and photoshop CS4 editing, also surf the net, play music, download,open/scan documents/ perform hard drive scans, and virus scans, I am looking for a system that will allow me to do most of these without hesitation, or crashing the system down. The cpu that I have looked at is AMD HDT55TFBRBOX Phenom II 1055T Six Core Processor - 2.80GHz, 6MB Cache, 2000MHz (4000 MT/s) FSB, Retail, Socket AM3, Processor with Fan

What do you suggest ? for Ram? Size specs? Graphic card? main board? cooling? hdd? SATA? raid? SCSI?

  1. Well thing is, intel is better only for CS4, but the AMD 6 cores are overall better for video editing. So thats up to you. The 1055T is a very good choice. But what is your budget, COO, and parts needed?
  2. 1k for everything no more.
  3. APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Not sure yet. Shooting for October.
    BUDGET RANGE: $800

    SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Audi/movie converting/ surfing net, some gaming nothing hard core, photo editing cs4, Autocad.

    PARTS NOT REQUIRED: (e.g.: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS) NEED EVERYTHING ELSE.



    PARTS PREFERENCES: AMD CPU, with decent mobo/ want it do to my task without problems.

    OVERCLOCKING: Yes / No / Maybe

    SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Yes / No / Maybe

    MONITOR RESOLUTION: (e.g.: 1024x768, 1280x1024, 1440x900, 1600x1200, 1680x1050, 1920x1080, 1920x1200)

    ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Quiet is also what I am looking for/Cool PC.
  4. AMD 1055T 197$
    Asrock 880g extreme3 110$
    G.skill eco series 4GB 99$ You may want to get two kits if you think you'll use it.
    ATI 5770/GTX 460/if you wait until october 6770 ~140-200$ The 880g has integrated for desktop/photoshop use if you want to wait for the 6770.

    XFX black edition 750 watt+Antec 900 140$ with XFX power coupon code
