Doing some programming and photoshop CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: 480 GTX OTHER RELEVANT SYSTEM SPECS: I'm eyeing an i7 950 for the processor. Case can be temporary cause I can buy a better one later. PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg.com COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA PARTS PREFERENCES: I would like to get for the best rated instead of the most expensive for most parts. OVERCLOCKING: Possible SLI in the future. MONITOR RESOLUTION: I can always buy another monitor or borrow one. ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I am unsure if SLI is best since i'll already be using a 480. By the time, I choose to go dual, there setup might be obsolete.
