    Near final build - thoughts?

    iptinak Level 1

      So, I have posted a few times to get some insight and thanks to those who helped me

      providing information and thoughts. As a recap I will be using this system for LR3 and PS CS5 primarily. Additionally I will be using Flash Catalyst, Flash, and Adobe premeire Elements 8 for some light video editing (most from a small helemt cam, and some from a 7D - but output would be webquality only). My proposed Budget was $1500 and I came in right near it.


      Intel i7 930    

      Gigabyyte GA X58A UD3R LGA triple channel 6/GBs

      XFX core edition GS250XZSL4 GeForece GTS 250 1GB video card

      GSKILL 6GB 240pin DDR3 SDRAM 1600 (PC3 12800) timing of 8-8-8-21 (2 sets for 12GB total)


      Case - either AZZA solano 1000 black or ENERMAX uber chakra ECA5001B

      COOLER MASTER intel core i7 compatable 92mm cooler


      HD's leaning toward WD Caviar bk 640BG 32MB cache SATA 3.0 for the OS and a second for the scratch.

      Then a WD Caviar bk 1TB 64MB cache SATA 6.0 for the image storage.


      Open to thoughts, suggestions, and anything I might have overlooked or missed on any level. This will be my first build .
