Combo 1
Combo 2
You might need a DVD/CD reader combo with your hdd

if your really want to combo the case+psu you can. though the only case/psu combos are ones by coolermaster, rosewill and for the slightly more expensive cases, corsair

name the budget on the case/psu and i can probably suggest a few examples


well...

the total of the combo is $647 [ how do you find out such good combos?]

and my price is $800 i think 150 or less if you can..

2600k build will be cheaper. Geforce has better support for your creative needs. Get 16gb ram with the money you'll save with a 2600k system. The nvidia card must have 1gb vram.

HAHAHA, sorry i feel to sleep. Not even joking :p  I posted in bed while using the on screen keyboard.

I use 3dsmax & Adobe CS 5.5 and the best bang for you buck isn't jumping on Ivy bridge, besides they run a little hotter. Go the 1155 with a core i7 2600k, also CUDA acceleration (Nvidia's Engine) is more wide spread then stream (ATI's Engine). Photoshop and your 3d programs can take advantage of CUDA better. I'm acutally doing a 12 hour render in 3dsmax now at 1080p, and i'm very happy with me setup which only costed me 800 bucks 3 months ago.

Do some serious research and on a side note i got kicked in the balls on was i needed 1GB of ram to use adobes mecrury engine on my graphics card, so make sure you get that when buying a graphics card.

Good luck and sorry for going to sleep. Now i'm off to work :p
