Default New PC Build

I'm having this PC built for me by Cyberpower. After checking component prices against having them build it for me I found its only a couple of hundred dollars more for them to do the build then if I do it myself. The guarantee is worth the extra money to me.

I still have time to change the configuration before the actual build. The PC will be used for Adobe CS5 web development (flash and some movie editing as well) along with the usual online gaming (WOW is my thing). Any suggestions on the build? Money is less of a concern than performance.

Thanks,

Default Re: New PC Build

Don't get a super clocked card. You can easily OC the "regular" card to the same speed as the super clocked card by software.
I would get a bigger SSD if I were you. If you're doing image and video editing you'll be working with large files, so I think you should get at least a 128GB SSD.
Are you planning on OC? Maybe you should get 3x4GB, less stress on the memory controller of BIOS so you can get a higher OC.
