So this is my first time building a computer. I've put this together, I plan on running Adobe's CS5 suite on here fairly often, and possibly doing some gaming. I've kept the price down to around $600.

I'm going to be running Windows 7, and all the parts are coming from newegg. Any feedback or suggestions on any of the parts i have would be great. As I say i'm pretty much a total novice and don't want to forget anything important or overlook anything.

Ah good idea bettering the video card. I'm struggling to find these combos on their site though. And what does the "AR" mean after the dollar amounts?
