This pc will be used for games, cs6 programs and very little, (maybe more in the future, not sure yet) maya, 3ds max, mud box, and school work. I will also be using paintshop, xara, Corel draw and other illustration programs. But I do want to be able to play the newest games on ultra on a 1080p monitor... The reason i am using a gtx 670 rather than a amd 7970 is because photoshop has a dedicated speed performance enhancer if you use cues cores. Here are the specs:
