    Need some advice on a new build for CS5 Web Premium

    info@garrant.com Level 1

      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.

       

      Thanks in advance everyone for the advice on this. :)
