Default Help Me Build A Pc!

hi.

i've never attempted to build my own pc, but i'm tired of using my family's POS dell desktop and looking to get/build one of my own and i'm in need of some guidance.

pc will be used for photoshop cs2 and multimedia purposes.
i would also like to connect my pc to my hdtv via dvi -> hdmi.

budget is no more than 800. but once more money flows in, i will be looking to expand the system even more if required.

help would be appreciated. thanks in advance!!

lol.... i cant pick everything for u... thats to time consuming
Wat u need to do is look at this thread...
http://techist.com/showthread.php?threadid=77323

Then research and do posts on individual components... U cant just expect us to do them all

But i would give u some suggestions:
6800gs (if u have AGP)
if u can afford it, 7800gs

Any kind of motherboard... as long as its not too cheap and it has a lot of plugs (depends on what ur wanting to get)

5300e speakers $130

Audigy 4 sound card $70

Logitech G15 keyboard (or something like that, its late)

A nice case.... i like the Xion cases
Also: dont get a case for performance.. get it for looks.

Dvd Burner (Nec is good and cheap..)

All of this can be found @ Newegg.com

Be sure to do plenty of posting and research on each individual part

And good luck

~case material affects temps
~form factor
~room for hiding wire
~air flow
~different hdd bays
~durability
