More about build review please
  1. There are a few other RAM sets you could save $5-$10 on, or else jump to DDR31600 near your current price.

    Upgrading to a i5760 (If it's back in stock when you order)

    I would look at a 5450 video card, or else, whatever newegg has on cyber monday for ~$20, the 5770 looks pretty overkill for your use.
  2. thanks for the help.

  3. ^ Why not try the AMD's 6-Core CPUs ??
    Here is a build based on that...
    1055T + Gigabyte 870A

    RAM -
    More the better for PS
    Mushkin 8GB DDR3

    CM 690

    PSU - Right now a very good deal

    Video card - Get the one with CUDA as the CS5 takes good advantage of it, also the GTS 450 would suffice IMO
    PNY VCGGTS4501XPB GeForce GTS 450 (Fermi) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5

    HDD, DVD - Same...
    Total - ~$684 | ~$599
    If you could get this, then it would be a very good addition to the build -
