    Hi all,

    I'm looking to build my first computer to use with Lightroom and Photoshop. There will be no video or gaming. Can you comment on these components. Many thanks. Have a great Thanksgiving.

    Thanks for the comments.

    The i7-2600k is $100 more, and I'm trying to stay near $1000.

    EVGA 01G-P3-1352-KR GeForce GTS 450 (Fermi) 1GB 12...

    Thanks again.

    Perfect the TX650 has allot of wires but other than that its a great PSU. The 450 is a great all around card and you will even be able to Game on Med settings.
