It looks good, you'd obviously get more performance from a 1366 system but seeing as you want to minimze the cost getting the most amount of cores/threads possible is a key/important thing as a lof of that 3D modeling/texturing is done by both the graphics card as well as the processor as well (especially if you're looking into detailing in 2D/3D)

Thanks for the input, Arinoth. I'm also concerned about the GPU. Will a 5750 suffice for these applications? Would I even be able to go with something less, like a 5650?
