How does this look? It is a bit more $ than I had hoped, but seems like a good machine. Any suggestions on parts? Should I get a better CPU cooler? Not looking to OC out of the gate, but maybe down the road.
After reading lots of other posts beginning to wondering the following ...
Should I go with 7850 instead of 560? Sounds like CUDA doesnt make a big difference and 7850 apprently is quieter with equivalent performance.
Asrock Z77 or Asus Z77?
Is the power supply overkill? Went with Seasonic becuase it is good quality and quiet.
Again, computer for personal photo edit/storage (Photoshop/Lightroom), family video conversion/edit/storage (Premiere), and some misc games/internet. So if it sounds like I could get by with less, please let me know.
I'd recommend using the Nvadia still. Adobe and Nvadia I believe (someone double check?) work together to improve the Adobe software, a luxury that the ATI cards do not have. Additionally, I have an EVGA 560 Superclocked 560 1024 version that I got on sale for $149. It really beats out the Radeon cards in my opinion.
What 7850 are you looking at? The 7850 is a good Radeon card, Is it the same price? Link?
Make sure you check on Adobe's site to see their list of supported graphics cards. What's your editing load look like? More video or photos? How much are you going to be editing? Is it professional or just for yourself?
