I'm switching back to the 'darkside' after being with Mac for a while—just got sick of Apple being so slow to release pro workstations!
Ohh, and I just realised how much I've been getting ripped off when you check the $$ on custom builds!!
Thanks heaps in advance guys
What you have picked will work well. Don't think you need the XEON, but it will do just fine. No hard drives/SSD listed though. I have a similar build for the same purposes you have outlined, maybe even a bit more. I'm using CS6 and 3DS max design.
I have great success with a 240GB SSD and 4 500GB drives in raid 10.
