    New Build help please

    Hello, i wanted to assemble a desktop..... i definitely have the ability to assemble it, but, picking compatible parts... Not so much.... Basically Photoshop cs6 is the most memory intensive program i use.. I do not game, and only a small amount of Video editing.... I would like to spend less then on $600 on Newegg for parts. not including screen , keyboard or mouse , just the tower. I would like to run a SSD for my OS.... Thanks so much.. if there's somewhere better to post this will a admin move it please thanks?

    Thank you!

    You can use the following as a general guideline and modify to suit,

    AMD A10-5800K 3.8GHz
    MSI FM2-A85XA-G65
    *Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600
    SAMSUNG 840 Pro (MZ-7PD128BW) 128 GB SSD
    LG GH24NS95 DVDRW
    Corsair Carbide Series 200R
    SeaSonic S12II 430B

    Subtotal: $512.94
    *Included free as combo with mobo.


    Does not include operating system.

    For additional ideas, you can take a look at the following,

    You're welcome.

    You did not mention if the budget was pre-tax and such, so kept it lower than the limit.
    If the budget was pre-tax,
    You can toss in a 1 TB/2 TB mechanical hard drive, for data storage into the list.

    An advantage of the LG DVDRW that Shinma chose is M-Disc compatibility. Mileniata discs are writable discs that do not use dyes and are considered archival permanent. They need a compatible unit to write them but then can be read by any dvd unit. Alas the system does not seem to have been picked up by the other burner manufacturers. The M-Discs cost about $3 each here but for pix or data you want to be readable in 10 years or more, there's nothing else. The LG units don't cost any more than the other brands lacking M-Disc writing capability.

    Why do you have 2 cards in Crossfire if you do not intend to do gaming? One 7770 is well enough for Photoshop.

    Depending on how much you're into audio, you might want to drop the discrete soundcard and see if the onboard audio of the motherboard is fine for you.
    Onboard audio is a lot better than it was a few years ago.

    Finally, sorry but the power supply you have chosen is a basement-bargain brand just waiting to blow up
    I'd recommend to take a look at a higher quality and more efficient power supply. The Seasonic S12II 430B Shinma recommended above is a great choice, and way enough power for your system.
    It might be slightly more expensive but the PSU is in some way the heart of the system so it's not a place you'd want to skimp on.

    Otherwise, the rest looks good to me

    Core i7 2600K @ 4GHz | Noctua NH-C12P SE14 | ASUS Maximus IV GENE-Z | 16GB G.Skill Ripjaws X 1600 CL9 | Gigabyte GTX 670 OC 2GB | 256GB Crucial m4 | 2TB WD Green | Samsung DVD±RW | Seasonic X 460w Fanless | Fractal Design Define Mini | Windows 7 Ultimate | Dell 2209WA @ 75Hz
