Here is my build I just got done putting together
Antec Dark Fleet DF-85 ATX Full Tower Gaming Computer Case $160(amazon)
Intel Core i7-950 $275 (amazon)
EVGA 132-GT-E768-KR Motherboard $160 (motherboard)
Corsair Vengeance Blue 8 GB PC3-12800 1600mHz DDR3 240-Pin SDRAM $50(amazon)
SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 1TB Hard Drive $110(newegg)
Pioneer Electronics USA Internal BD Writer $75(amazon)
I used a old 500w supply from my last build
I also purchased a
GIGABYTE ATI Radeon HD6850 1GB DDR5 2DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort PCI-Express Video Card $160(amazon), but it was dead on arrival. So if anyone can suggest me a good card to get for my build please do.
I am using this build mostly just for the business I run, some photoshop work, and dreamweaver. I do not do a lot of gaming.
My total so far is
$990
Also looking to purchase new monitors, I use 2 22inch LCD's at the moment. I would love to go to a 32 LED tv, but I have heard so many bad things about using a tv for a monitor.

What's your budget?

I use my 40" Samsung as my monitor via HDMI and haven't any problems with my old 6950 vid card nor my 6990 card. But seeing as your going to use the pc more for business, PhotoShop, dreamweaver it would probably be best to buy 2 monitors so you can have multiple windows open.

Finally Bit the bullet and took advantage of the Market for my used 2GB 560ti's and sold them and bought a EVGA 4GB GTX 670.....Soooo glad to be on one card instead of two, Computer is quieter and runs much cooler...Games playing sooooooo much smoother and at better framerates...And the Overclocking headroom on these cards are insane...I think I finally got a good one (so far I got it to 1294mhz, with much more room to spare)...The overclocking on my 2 gb 560ti's was awful and the overclock on my original 1gb 560ti's was even worse.......Don't regret getting this card so far...

I'll benchmark some more and post screenshots when I get home from Work.......But its a known fact that keplar boost will take some 670's up past 1300+.......I might just have gotten a good Card..because It ran Heaven at max at 1920x1200 without a hitch or crash and my performance graphs looked normal and temps didn't go past 64 Degrees celcius....But check the 670 overclock thread on Overclock.net, and there are quite a few who are running even higher clocks....

OK here is my highest stable Clock for now......I was able to run Unigine Heaven through the benchmark at 1294 Mhz, but I crashed on the loop at about 20 minutes in after the benchmark...Not stable to me.....So I backd it down to 1277 Mhz and was able to loop heaven for about 2 hours and then ran the benchmark.....here is the screenshot...

That PC will be a beast but let me just point out that you would save yourself about $600 if you built it yourself. If you buy that PC let us know how it goes.

Best Buy is a rip off when it comes to gaming PCs / Video cards... Try newegg or if you have one by you TigerDirect.... as dude above me said you'd save money building it yourself, but if you'e not comfortable with that TigerDirect will build it for you for 100$ charge and a warranty.... If he calculated the parts seperately right you'd still save 500$.

Last one has the slowest Core and Boost clock speeds which really means nothing since you can overclock them if you want. Not sure about the other two. Look the same to me.
