I am going to build core i7 system in the very near future.

Here are the parts that I pick.

Cpu: core i7 920

Mb: GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD4P LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard

Ram: OCZ platinum 12 GB DDR3 1600

Cpu Cooler:

GPU: Any suggestion? Must be better than ATI 4850

The rest of the system will come from Q6600 system. My requirements:

I do not play game much. But, do photo processing. Watch blu ray movies. Display runs at full hd resolution. I am happy with ati 4850. Since I am upgrading the system, I want something better than 4850. No plan to do sli or xfire. Ati or Nvidia is open. I pick the above motherboard as I need a lot of memory for virtualization. Please let me know if i can replace with better parts or cheaper parts that you recommend.

Total: $622 without gpu if I go with Noctua
Total: $617 without gpu if I go with v8

Thank you for your help.

Thank you for your inputs. I want to oc to 3.8 to 4.0. I need a good cooling solution.

i will be selling 4850, so i need another one. How does 4890 do? GTX will be faster than 4890. Right?
