Additional Comments: As I understand it, Half of cs6 utilizes CUDA cores (why i chose the gtx 570) but photoshop and speedgrade only use opengl/cl so the gtx 570 would be useless. Confused on this selection because of that. Also, how should I go about buying fans for my case?

Why Are You Upgrading: Desire to learn to build and my laptop wont run cs6 well

More about 1000 time build music production
  1. im into music production a little myself and having 2 monitors would be a really good investment
  2. I'm really new to building. Would that just mean I crossfire?
  3. No you wouldnt have to CF for something like this, if you were gaming you would have to but not for music production
  4. would you just have to run one monitor off the hdmi and the other off a different connection? forgive my ignorance
