Additional Comments: if its possible, i would like to get the best budget oriented to my needs and still have some future-proof, also i would like to give a try to a hackintosh distro for this kind of task i would like to use separate hdd's one for win and one for hackintosh; for the windows hdd i would like to try ssd or even hhdd, cause i have some experience with the hhdd over win 7 utlimate x64 and it gives me 75-86 mb of transfer rate and boots really fast, so just comment and give advice

  1. First off SLI or Crossfire won't help much with Premiere pro and photoshop etc. Also I understand that Nvidia CUDA is favoured here!

  2. thanks for the reply, but am i wrong or the mobo is missing??
    thanks in advance.
  3. Oops, It is too!

    For the motherboard I recommend an ASUS as their BIOS setup (EFI BIOS) is really shiny and easy to use. In order to keep SLI as an option you'll need to go up to the P8P67 Pro edition.


    And then that $1000 dollar budget of yours really takes a beating!

    If you want you can spend the extra money -- OR -- you can drop down to the Intel core i5 2500K CPU in order to save some money!

    Here is a revised listing

    CPU -- Core i5 2500K (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115072) $224.99

    Power -- Seasonic NonModular 620Watt http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151096 $79.99

    RAM -- Same as last time

    Monitor -- Same as last time

    Motherboard -- ASUS P8P67 Pro http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131703 $189.99

    GPU -- Nvidia GTX 460 (Bit cheaper but will need SLI in the future I expect) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121420 $206.99

    HDD -- Same as last time

    And another thing I forgot was the CD/DVD drive ... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827118040 will do for $22.99

    All prices are in US dollars which is what I assume you will be using?

    Total = $900 aprox which allows you some money to get a bit better GPU and stuff!
