Building a computer for my daughter who may do a little gaming but primarily it will be for graphics and animation using Adobe CS5, etc. She is not to far into it right now, just making movies etc. but I need something with upward scalability in terms of being able to upgrade etc. We play on buying a I7 2600K but would like to know which board will give us the best bang for our buck. Thanks!!

Go for the ASRock Z68 Extreme3. It can use Ivy Bridge processors, so you can upgrade it in the future, and it's remarkably cheap. It's the best value around.
Thanks, I'll look into it. Btw does it have integrated graphics until we get a decent card? I couldn't tell from the image that Amazon provides. Thanks for your help!
