System Usage from Most to Least Important: 2D graphic work (Photoshop and Painter), gaming
Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, screen, audio set
Parts Preferences: not really - I'm open for every solutions
SLI or Crossfire: No
Monitor Resolution: 1440x900
Additional Comments: Basically I want a setup on which Photoshop (and Painter) can smoothly handle at least A4 sized documents at 300 dpi resolution (Using a Wacom Bamboo Fun Medium tablet as input device) and my gf wants to play Dragon Age Origins on it - and some games with similar requirements.
Parts already selected(Note: Nothing listed below are set in stone yet though I really like what I read about the MoBo and the CPU - and they are also in the price range I prefer, so the main question is which GPU to choose and what PSU will I need)
PSU: Still undecided. I'm not even sure which manufacturers' products worth buying and also don't know how much power would this system need (450W? 500W? even more?) One thing for sure: I'd rather opt for a less fancy GPU than spend much more than 100 $ on the PSU. So suggestions are needed very badly.
Case: Not sure either but that's the smallest problem imho. I don't want anything fancy.
sadams04, gkay09: Thanks for the suggestions. Apparently I have misjudged my budget - having checked the components suggested by sadams04 at hungarian retailers I've found that their prices are about 25% higher than those newegg prices... I want to stick to the I3 CPU so I guess I have to opt for cheaper GPU and maybe a cheaper PSU for it - if that's an option.
So I guess my budget is around 450-500 $ on those newegg prices. Any suggestions considering that?
