ha well sounds good enough but if your gonna do Photo Shop and gaming i do recommend either a bigger SSD or a HDD. unless yo a faster boot up time or benchmark your hard drive, a HDD will do just fine. I use the FX 6100, So people have luck with it some don't like it. But in my experience in Gaming it does work and works well at it. Multi Tasking is no issue for this one. and you don't have to spend top dollar to have the highest end PC

Check out this tidbit from a very recent Tom's Hardware article. Bottom line is Intel is your best bet right now. Better gaming performance at every price point (gulp!)

I'd recommend foregoing an SSD and using the money for additional graphics (or to boost up to a 2500k with a decent cooler). Cheers!

I agree the I cores are the best choice. For what you want to do I would say the I5 2500k. If though you already have the AMD motherboard and your deadest on that then I would say the Phenom II 1055.

Ok as long as you know what you're getting. The I core processor's cost more but compared to the Bulldozer you're getting better performance. Clock for clock the Bulldozer can't compete with the I core processors.

You would want to get a Z68 board with an 1155 socket. The Z68 is one of the newer chipsets from Intel and will also be backwards compatible with Ivy Bridges in case you decide to upgrade. What size SSD do you want to get? The size will be a determining factor on how much you pay. You can get a Z68 board for 75-125 dollars and the I5 2500k will come in at around 216 dollars.

If you have about 500dlls ...and use some old components ..then 2500k and later upgrade from there ...if you dont then ...wait for the new amd chips to get out later t his year ...sucks to be on a budget ...

180? If it's 180 dollars than it's probably not a 2500k (unless it's on sale). You can't really overclock a non k version I core processor. They can only be overclocked a few hundred MHz. A K version can be overclocked to about 4.5 GHz. I would get a 128 MB SSD. You won't really be able to store much on it, probably just the OS and important drivers but it will make boot ups faster.

Because like anything you get what you pay for. If you buy a cheap board the overall quality most likely won't be as good as a high-end board. I've seen people buy cheap motherboards and have everything from a flakey BIOS to dead PCI-E slots and dead RAM slots.

Once you decide what mother board your getting you have to go onto the manufactures website and You have to check the RAM compatabilty list. If the motherboard supports Corsair Vengence then I would get 8 gigs of that. As for video cards I would say it depends on your budget and if you want to go with Nvidia or AMD. If you want to go Nvidia I would look at the GTX 570 or 580. Or if you're not in a rush you can wait for the GTX 6XX series to be released in the spring. If you want to go AMD then I would look at the 6970, 7950 or 7970.

As for SSD as I said earlier I would say a 120 or128 MB SSD. The problem is SSD's a really expensive and for the price you pay you don't really get much memory compared to a mechanical HDD. That's why a lot of people get a small SSD for just the OS and important drivers and to act as the main boot drive.

ok thanks so i am getting almost to the end :D 
so i will go with i5 2500k
GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 or GA-Z68XP-UD3 what is difference?but i found this one GA-Z68AP-D3???
GV-N560OC-1G NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1024MB GDDR5
OCZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-60G 2.5" 60GB SATA III dont want bigger tho cuz i will use as u said just for win7 other than that i will add another HDD
Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 or GA-Z68XP-UD3 what is difference?but i found this one GA-Z68AP-D3???

It doesn't seem like very much other then price. The only thing I can tell is that the XP has an M-Sata connector.

GV-N560OC-1G NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1024MB GDDR5

This is ok I guess. I really am not crazy of the GTX Ti's.
O
CZ Agility 3 AGT3-25SAT3-60G 2.5" 60GB SATA III dont want bigger tho cuz i will use as u said just for win7 other than that i will add another HDD

Thats up to you but 60 Gigs isn't really alot. I would do atleast 120
Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

Mushkin makes good RAM and 8 Gigs is more than enough.

so if i go with GA-Z68AP-D3 is cheapest one can i still OC?
which gpu would you recommend then?
i will check then some 120gb but its more money

As long as you pair it with a "K" version CPU like the 2500K then yes. If you got something like a I5 2500 then no you wouldn't really be able to overclock, not to the same degree as an unlocked CPU.

It should be fine. The worst that can happen is the board is screwed up out of the box. If that happens all you can do is RMA it.

Any of those should be fine. There is no such thing as real future proof motherboard. Intel and AMD are both constantly changing sockets and chipsets so at some point you're going to have to change. Right now Z-68 is the most "future proof" because it will be backwards compatible with Ivy Bridges. If you have a Z68 board it should last a couple years before it becomes completely obsolete.

Do you have the Windows 7 CD and key code? You can try to do a fresh re-install of Windows and see if that helps. You can also set Windows up in an SSD if it isn't already. An SSD will speed up the load time by a good bit.

What BIOS version is your motherboard using now? Revision 1? If it's using revision 1 and there is an update to revision 2 then yes you can flash the BIOS. You should carefully read your motherboard manual on flashing because it can be risky. If something happens like the power goes out while it's updating or the flash fails you can brick the motherboard. You'll have an unfixable expesive paper weight.
