6GB Triple Channel DDR3-1600mhz
$159

PNY GeForce GT 220 -week i know but its good enough for now
1GB DDR2 GRAM HDMI OUT
$50

Case:
Thermaltake V3 Black Edition
$35

PSU:
CoolerMaster 500W Extreme Power Plus

If you get large enough to fit your adobe products on it, they will benefit from it. Stuff like word and excel can do without.

The nice thing is that 1TB drives are so cheap now, you can add them as you need them down the road at a minimal cost.

No.

Just read the instructions supplied to make sure you are using the correct mounting points on your case.

Please, please do not buy OEM. The OEM parts are trash, plain and simple.
Does this include windows 7? I found a copy of it for 70bucks but it is OEM, does that matter?

I'm referring to hardware, windows 7 oem is probably a system builders copy without the fancy case and stuff. Perfect for you.

You're going to want to up that PSU to at least 650 to push that video card - See my earlier posts ;-)

His 620 PSU will be fine....

That GPU would run on a 400 watt PSU

Yea, PSU will be fine. Fortunately todays CPUs and GPUs pretty much run on no power at all unless under load, so that saves on total consumption~

That 650 paired with your ivy core will do great. The ivy core has a built in GPU to the chip which will run in conjunction with your standalone GPU, and in certain cases has seen enormous increase in some situations, and at least some gains no matter what you are doing. I'm a little bit jealous of ivy cores~
