Approximate Purchase Date: This month (maybe even this week)

Budget Range: $1000-1500

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Digital Painting, Audio/Video processing, 3d Rendering, Audio Recording, Gaming

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor, OS

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg.com

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: Intel i5/i7, nVidia Graphics Card, SoundFont capable Soundcard

Overclocking: No (unless part is already overclocked)

SLI or Crossfire: Yes

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1200

Additional Comments: I'm trying to build a computer to handle my various hobbies. I want it to be reasonably powerful, but also really quiet. Because I want to do Audio work on this, I want this system to be reasonably quiet. I'd rather keep it within the 1000-1200 range, but I can stretch my budget pretty well.

For 3D and video editing i7 2600k is better than 2500k. It cost you 100$ more.

This looks pretty good. I might swap out the PSU with something quieter (do I really need 850w? I don't know of many computers that need anything higher than 600w), and maybe add in an aftermarket cooler. Thanks, this is great.
