    However, You're still being vague. Give us a list of the programs you're working with. Do they need CUDA? Do they need OpenCL? Are you a professional photographer?

  6. You need less CPU and more GPU up front then :)

    I'm not going to give you any specific parts recommendations 4 months off, because too much will change.

    Yes, if you were buying today it would be a 7870 and an i5 2500K, with 8GB of RAM. Or possibly a GTX 680.
  7. Oh, and you need to include a new monitor into the build... 1920x1080 I would suggest.
  8. Get a 2500k and a 680. Killer combo. And 4gb of ram. Photoshop doesn't need a fast video card. Just needs a good cpu.
