My System Specs

Default

I thought of another way to go and stay on budget.

CPU -AMD Phenom II X4 925
MOBO - ASUS M4A78T-E AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX

The CPU is $33 cheaper and 30 watts less than a Phenom II X4 955. All I would need to do is OC to 3.2GHz.
This way I have quad core with L3 cache.
The compromise would be that I would wait to get a graphics card.
The motherboard has ATI Radeon HD 3300 onboard graphics with better specs than my current GPU.
Seems to me this would do fine for photoshop and playing Counter Strike Source until I have the money for a nice graphics card since the onboard is capable of playing 1080p.

Any thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
