Default New quickie build

Broken (ancient) computer that needs to be replaced. Needed for upcoming school (heavy photoshop and video editing).

Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H
X6 1055t

OCZ StealthXStream 2 Ultra-Quiet 600W Power Supply
Mushkin Blackline 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz CL7 DIMM (996652)


Those are all the parts I need at the moment, I'm going to be pricing / cruising the forums at the same time for other related posts, I just wanted to throw this up quick to grab opinions / known issues or anything (more the latter then the former :P)

thank in advance guys!

-Lark

p.s - weird copy pasta o.o sorry!
edit - I messed up the psu part

I can't find an 870 locally for some reason (I dont want to ship anything) and the integrated video card is a fantastic backup - the less downtime this system has for any reason, the better. it's also $5 off.

I'll look around here for a used 1055 but I kinda want to get this running ASAP. like today.

Thanks Dan!

$60 MIR + 26 off and CL7? I'd rather hit the new stuff with the warranty. (8 gb, ironically because 32 bit windows is in use.. XD)
