The stuff he said all looks good to me.

I know you probably don't need a more powerful GPU (unless you also plan to do other things) but are you interested in CUDA?

More powerful (still not too expensive with the MIR tho) non CUDA http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Newer CUDA card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (includes stuff like DX11 if you're going to use anything like that)

Older CUDA card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (a bit cheaper)

He does not need CUDA whatsoever, the only product in the adobe suite that supports CUDA is Premiere CS5, and that is extremely limited. Spending an extra $100 for something he wont use is simply pointless.

Sorry, just that a couple of the other guys here seemed pretty intent on CUDA for this sort of this. But if that's how it works, then you're right bout it, dw bout spending that extra.

Timop,

What would be a good video card to put with this setup around 50-100 bucks? Then I take it I would be able to game pretty good as well?

Thanks,
Todd

If you don't mind me helping to answer that, how well is how well (e.g. what resolution, how demanding are the games you're talking about)

If you want to game, switch the Mobo to this:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

and get this GTX460: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

However, thats just a general suggestion for your budget, your monitor res and usage would still be great.
