    I'd suggest the corsair range of PSU's, something in a 550 / 600 watt flavour would be ideal. Case is down to personal preference, I'm awaiting delivery of a Coolermaster CM690 II today, best I could find in the sub-100 range.

    For run of the mill stuff Photoshop is not as demanding on GPU power as it is on CPU & memory. Current versions do not exploit dual GPU. You may find these useful....

    As said above the case is personal preference, personally I have a large black boring case, but quite a few fans for good airflow. My PSU is a 1KW Corsair they rock!

    1,046.89 - but still need a case and a few bits and bobs

    i reckon 1200 will be the final cost - double my budget.

    thankfully ive already pruchased a 24" Monitor

    Oh well, better than spending 600 and then another 1200 6 months down the line as the pc no longer supports what you want it to, its always better to future proof things, computers, screens and holes in walls for network cables!

    Yeayh - that's along the lines I was thinking of for the PSU - budgets gone up, but Dan's right. And it'll be searingly quick!

    When I built my rig I had the same quandry, build a PC that is current tech for a decent price, or go all out and build a rig that will last me for a good few years, I chose the latter!
