    PC for prem CS5? GTX 480, which brand? Shuttle?

      I'm trying to decide for a graphics card and PX-box for premiere CS5.


      I'm considering bying the GTX 480

      There are some different makers of that card:

      MSI, Gainward, ASUS, EVGA

      Any suggestions why I should select one manufacturer before the other?
      I see EVGA has some superclocked versions.... any thoughts about those?


      I'm also considering buying the Shuttle SX58J3 SFF computer, support up to 16GB memory, LGA1366 Socket, Intel X58 Express, up to 4 SATA-300 disks.

      Reason for this choice is that I want to be able to take the PC with me without to much hassle.

      This comes standard with a 500W PS, but I belive I should be able to put in another more powerful PS... e.g. a 600W one.

      Or is this a bad choice?


      I7 CPU:

      2.8 GHz or 3.2 GHz ?

      Any suggestions on which CPU and number of cores, will I notice that much difference between 2.8 and 3.2?
