Well I also was planning on using my computer to run photoshop since I draw digital artwork all then time and animation so I am not sure if this would affect my choice as well with the CPU.
A. I will answer this later as short on time being on Jury Dury.

Alright well that is great to know then i'll definitely hold off on the fan but does this mean I have to still apply thermal paste on the CPU?
A. No. The heat-sink has pre applied TIM as a pad or strips, you just secure the unit in place.

Thanks also had no idea that the motherboard had a soundcard integrated on it ^^
A. Your welcome.


That definitely sounds like a good investment for the SSD and it take load times of the harddrive? If so I am in.
A. Yes. Also helps some games appear smoother when moving to a different scene.

So what is the real difference between these two cards MSI GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB Video Card and Asus GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB Video Card
A. I look for the best combination of low heat, low noise and bang for the buck. Look for reviews like the below,' if budget allowed, the best in it's class.

Also mainly the case was purely cosmetic I think it just looks really cool
A. May visit this again later.



Awesome then i'll get the MSI card and just a quick question say if after I buy this and later on down the line decide to upgrade to a high end video card would I need a better CPU? So it doesn't bottleneck my system or can it pretty much run anything.

Yeah I was looking at the case reviews and a lot of people where having problems with fan controller and it crushing chords due to not having enough room on the side panel, so I don't know anymore but I definitely want a case the has room for SLI and has good ventilation to help with the any overheating that may occur. Maybe a midtower case if at all possible.

Also when I get this stuff will it all come with the chords I need or will I need to buy them separately?

Hi.
Asked for your Zip Code in case you were near to one of these stores where they have fantastic pick up prices, don't think they are within reasonable driving distance for you, http://www.microcent...es/default.aspx Posted Image

A. Will depend on your answers and the level of the work. May also suggest increasing RAM to 16GB.


Q. Can you tell us which products you use, > http://www.adobe.com/au/downloads/
Q. Are the files you work on very large?
Q. Is the time taken to processes a project quickly of great importance or not really?

A. The i5 3570K will be good enough for almost any single GPU, lots of gamers using it with the GTX Titan with great results.

A. Proposed case, > http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811119257
Classed as Mid tower but more like a full tower, take very large GPUs, good cooling with options.

All cables supplied, exception, SATA Signal cable (to connect Adds and Optical drives) are supplied with the MB, usually two, so when the build is finalized, need than to count up required cables. At the moment you will need one extra.
