Here is a proposed system, mainly for Photoshop.
Components from another machine will be raided:
EVGA GTX 260 Core 216 896MB video card (non overclocked version)
120 GB SSD SATA III (6GB/s) for boot OS
Black Caviar 1TB or 2TB Drives for storage. No RAID.
ASUS P8P67 Pro, P67 with an i7 2600K 3.4 Quad
Kingston RAM but 16GB and preferably DDR-1600
Corsair HX 850W
Blu Ray reader/writer
Possible replacement of stock fans with quiet fans.
Case: Antec P183v3 or a Cooler Master Version. The Cooler Masters get such rave reviews. I understand those cases have more noise but the fans seem to make a lot of difference, even more so than the insulation foam (sometimes). My current case is open and I do not get much fan noise. To be honest, my biggest noise complaint over the years has been those d**n hard drives.
My concerns: Will I have enough cabling length from the PSU to reach all video card and other peripherals? I like going with a Corsair PSU just in case I may want to move the PSU around to another case. I like options.
I am guessing my video card (now 2 years old) can still hold its own? I got the GTX 260 as Adobe specifically called it out as supportable on CS4. CS5 works well too.
Any input on case choice and anything else is most appreciated.
