  1. First things first. That PSU is way more than you're gonna need with that setup, particularly if you're not going to overclock try something like this

    Or if you want a modular psu then this

    I run my EVGA GTX 670 FTW off a 600w OCZ PSU
    I have a Recon3D sound card as well by the way
  2. budget?
  3. get the k version for *future* overclocking.

    I think you could get a better, more reliable 240GB ssd for around the same price. samsung 840 pro is the best in the market, but vertex 4, m4, or intel 520 would work. the vertex 4 is pretty fast, but you don't want an ocz ssd.

    you cold definitely get a better wifi adapter
  4. The new OCZ vectors are good too, they run right up around the samsung 840s
  5. Budget ? If you have a higher budget, i would suggest to get a LGA2011 based i7-3930K . Adobe CS6 eats moar cores for breakfast.

    Get more RAM. More RAM means less using pagefile.
  6. Thank you all for your responses.

    I think I will go for the 3770k. Its something I was considering anyway, and I've had similar feedback on other forums.
    As for the PSU - would 650W be sufficient? Also would more than 16G RAM really be necessary?

    lxgoldsmith - thank for the heads up on the SSD. I will look into alternatives.

    trumpeter199 - How do you find that sound card? A few people have mentioned to me that it may not be the best

    Over all my budget is £1500. I could go a little higher if necessary.
  7. What about this ..

  8. wifi adapter: http://www.amazon.com/Etekcity-Wireless-Network-Adapter-Antenna/dp/B006JWMOOI/ref=cm_cr_pr_pb_t

    gets great range, you can put it where you want, and it runs on the 802.11 N 300Mbps wireless N standard. it's also inexpensive.

    Edit: If you could, try a powerline 500Mbps solution. it won't get as much interference and will have a solid speed.

    A build focused towards heavy CS6 work. Add the misc parts like cabinet, monitors and others.
  10. Dude ocz drives are fine. The vertex 2s and earlier ones were terrible but the vertex 4, and pretty much any newer ssd is going to work fine.
