I am looking for a powerful PC that I can use mostly for work and some light video work. I have been looking at several systems, but I can't decide if I should get the Core i7 875K, 950 or AMD 1090T for my needs. I typically have many Adobe CS5 applications open at once like Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Illustrator and Flash, iTunes, Quickbooks, Microsoft Work and Excel. I would ideally like to buy a pre-built rig, but I can surely put together if better. Below are a few I have been looking at, but I am unsure about cooling on one of them and about the 875K processor on the other one. I figured a gaming PC would be fast and powerful as my needs are behond a standard base config. I would like some advice also on a good video card. Been looking at crossfire ATI HD 5770, single ATI HD 5870, Radeon 6870, and GeForce GTX 470 and SLI GTX 460. I am not a typical overclocker, but I can be if it will help performance running apps. I leave my PC on all day and night so cooling is a factor.
