Im building this system using both new parts and some existing parts from my current pc such as the optical drives and the memory. Would this be able to run editing programs such as adobe premiere pro, after effects, vegas, 3ds max, photoshop, illistrator, and some others? Also would it be able to play games (can it only run games like the sims or could it play call of duty or crysis?) and can you tell me if it is a good build overall.
Thank you! I figured i would get a big case so i could upgrade to a large heatsink later on and not have to worry about any components not fitting. Im glad to hear that both the motherboard and CPU are good. im planning on upgrading the memory down the road and the memory you picked out looks like it would be a good choice for me. and i will probably take your advice on the power supply, it looks like it would go with the red lights of the case better and i know Ultra psu's are cheap anyway.
