Here's my main build which I plan on ordering tomorrow depending on the feedback I get tonight. These are mostly made through combo deals and ended up being $620. Trying a make an all purpose PC with little photoshop/video editing and maybe gaming 2hrs a week (I can on play on Saturdays lol).

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 970 Black Edition Deneb 3.5GHz

MOBO: ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AM3

Video card: ASUS EAH4870/2DI/1GD5 Radeon HD 4870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16

PSU: OCZ ModXStream Pro OCZ600MXSP 600W ATX12V V2.2 / EPS12V

RAM: DDR3 Ripjaws

No big reason for me taking the AMD route. Never had one so I'll give them a try. Let me know if there's anything really lacking or if anything is just overkill. I wanted to stay within the 600's and this was the best I did by taking advantage of the combo deals.

Here are my secondaries:

Vid Card: XFX HD-567X-ZNF3 Radeon
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3
MOBO: ASRock H55M-LE LGA 1156 Intel H55
CPU: Intel Core i5-760 Lynnfield 2.8GHz LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core
PSU: CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W

Everything else is the same. There are no combo's on this one so it ran me about $670.

Any input is appreciated. Thank you!
