Default Need Build Reccomendations

Looking to upgrade, but haven't been really keeping up with hardware for some time now. Looking to build something that will do for the next 3 years or so

What I currently have:
Phenom II 955
Asus M4A785TDM-EVO
4GB Mushkin Ram
ATI 6870
Coolermaster Silent Pro 850w

Not interested in E-ATX cases at all either. I currently have one. Too big. Don't like it

I do all my gaming at 1920x1080 as well

1. What YOUR PC will be used for.

Games, Pro Tools, and Adobe Creative Suite

2. What YOUR budget is


3. What country YOU will be buying YOUR parts from.

Canada, most likely NCIX

4.IF YOU have a brand preference. That means, are you an Intel-Fanboy, AMD-Fanboy, ATI-Fanboy, nVidia-Fanboy, Seagate-Fanboy, WD-Fanboy, etc, etc, etc, you get the picture.

ATI Video Cards/ Everything else is wide open

5. If YOU intend on using any of YOUR current parts, and if so, what those parts are.

Monitor,mouse and keyboard as well as soundcard

6. IF YOU have searched and/or read similar threads.

Not in quite some time

7. IF YOU plan on overclocking or run the system at default speeds.

Mild OC at most.

8. WHEN do you plan to build it?
