    PC build for CS5 Production Premium


      Hello everyone. Ron here from Toronto Canada.


      I'm a serious hobbyist leaning more towards video and flash production, attempting to put together a PC for CS5 Production Premium.


      I've gone through this forum recently (a few times, actually - great info - thanks guys) and have put together what I think I want, as I'm not a hardware techie.


      I'm looking to see if I'm going on overkill, or if there are any finer details I may have missed in putting together these hardware components.


      Ex: Motherboard fits in case; CPU Cooler doesn't block RAM slots; GPU good enough - SuperClocked worth the price; Overclocking issues; Good Blu-Ray burner; Hardware alternatives; etc...


      Your thoughts and suggestions are most welcome.
