Sub-1K AMD X6 build help...
Hello to all. I've been wanting to invest in a desktop for some time now and today I visited to create a system from scratch.

Keeping the build under the 1k price point is not so difficult it seems nowadays. The main function of the build will be to serve as a video editing/photo editing workhorse, hence the AMD Phenom II x6 1055T Thuban CPU. I will play games on the machine from time to time, but that is not the purpose of this build. I already have a display unit.

Attached is my shopping list for the build and I would definitely like any feedback/guidance you can provide.

What's missing from this build:

A high fidelity soundcard
More cooling fans?
Dedicated HDD for OS (An SSD?)

My preference is for a quite system. I'm also looking to keep the temperatures down, so a suggestion for a cooling solution would be much appreciated.

That's about it, thanks in advance for any input.

you could add an SSD for OS and Photoshop.

you might also consider the 1075t. its faster base clock will help
