Hello guys , this is my first post in tomshardware :D 

Im going to buy this PC:

Intel i5 2500 3.3GHZ
Gigabyte GA-A67A-UD3-B3 socket 1155
Radeon 6850 HD ( which brand shall i buy Msi OC , Sapphire toxic , HIS iceQ x turbo)
NZXT lexa s
Adata premier series 1x4GB DDR3 1333 CL9
W.D. Caviar Black 1TB
Antec EarthWatts EA 500W PSU
Sony DRU-870S 24x DVD-RW drive

Any replacements suggestions would be thankful , Do i need more WATTS ? , Is the 6850 a Decent VGA? or the GTX 460 1gb is better?
Anything u think i can change it plz tell ( but stick to the same budget range ;)  ) , Asus's Mobo's or gigabyte?
PS: im building this for gaming and some graphics programs ( photoshop , autocad , 3D max)

thanks

I5 2500K
Asus P8P67
2x2GB ram instead of a single 4GB, photoshop, autocad and 3dmax would all benefit from 2x4GB, brand personal preference.
HD6850 is a good card manufacturer is a personal preference between those three I would select based on price, maybe throw XFX and Asus into the selection.
EA500D is an good PSU and plenty for that setup.

My two favorite video card brands are eVGA for nVidia cards and XFX for ATI/AMD cards.

I have used three different HIS cards with the IceQ coolers, and all were quiet, and ran cool.
