I'm chicken, someone please tell me this is okay...

This is going to be my second OSx86 box built from scratch. Built one a year ago with advice from the good people here.


From reading everything around, I've come to these specs:

(to be used primarily for photoshop, web development, etc. -- no gaming)


Motherboard: ASUS P5K Deluxe WiFi AP

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450

Graphics: Sapphire Radeon HD2600XT 512 MB

RAM: Kingston HyperX PC2-6400 DDR2 800MHz

DVD: Pioneer DVR-215

HD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB


Case, power supply and fans will be bought at a local computer shop. Monitor hasn't been chosen yet. Leaning toward an Apple Cinema Display 20" -- though it's hard to justify that the monitor costs as much as the whole rest of the computer. Oh well, I just can't take TN panels, gotta be S-IPS.


Any advice or suggestions of alternate components welcome. Please post, even if just to tell me if the list is okay. I'm chicken, I need a push! :(


Thanks to all,
