or the 500GB you had chosen...

Gigabyte GTX 460 + OCZ Fatality 80+ Certified 550W

The reason why I chose the 460 is because of it is a very good gaming card as well as CUDA will be very helpful for the 3D rendering/ CAD apps...

In not seeing very many X6 builds in these forums. Is it not worth getting? Would this be a better build??

^ You dont see many builds with 1055T is because most of them are gaming builds and the 1055T is not required if you will be building a gaming PC...
But on the other hand, if you will be using the PC mainly for encoding, rendering and stuffs, which are very CPU intensive and make use of multiple cores, then certainly the 1055T is a good option and even better when overclocked....
