Questions:
What motherboard should I use? What does the highend ASUS and other Manufacture give us? (Pro, Deluxe, ?)
What type of storage should I use? I heard the best is just SSD for operating system and HDD 2x for storage. Not raided or anything.

Please come back a day or two before buying, they reset the combo deals at the end of each month and the parts in stock change all the time.

What kind of editing and what apps do you use? You really need that workstation card?

Using CS5 for editing. When you say workstation card you mean Graphic card?
