What's up everyone! I need to build my girlfriend a new computer, she does a lot of 3d modeling, photoshop, second life etc so it has to have a good video card and lots of ram so any suggestions would be great! I have a budget of $1000

A $1000 budget is certainly doable.

Case: NZXT ZERO 2 Crafted Series CS-NT-ZERO-2 - This is a full ATX case, perfect for holding large equipment, such as long GPU's. It will also better handle heat due to more fan options. $99

Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 AM3+ AMD 970 - The AMD 900 series chipset is newer with the 970 being the basic entry-level model. This motherboard will take AM3 and AM3+ CPU's, keeping upgrade options open. $99

CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz - This is a six core CPU, this will allow it multitask quite easily. The AMD FX-8120 is an eight core CPU that is a little more powerful. Like all Black Edition CPU's, it is unlocked making overclocking easy and both have automatic overclocking capabilities. $169

PSU: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W - 750W is enough for most people. $109 (Before $15 mail-in rebate)

GPU: HIS H697F2G2M Radeon HD 6970 2GB - This is the most powerful single GPU AMD has. If you are more familiar with Nvidia products, this places in between the GTX 570 and 580. If you want to save money, the Radeon 6950 is also a good choice. $329 (Before $20 mail-in rebate)

RAM: Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 - RAM is RAM, and this single 4GB stick is enough for most uses. Given your use case, you should get more. The motherboard above has four slots, so, add away! $24

HDD: Western Digital AV-GP WD10EURS 1TB 64MB Cache - Plenty of space. $79

ODD: Sony Optiarc 24X DVD Burner, Bulk Package Black SATA Model AD-7280S-0B - A basic drive is all you need. $18

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit - You need this, however, if you use NAS backups or need EFS, the Professional Edition would be best. $99

Grand Total: $1033 (Before rebates, taxes, and shipping)

THe new Bulldozer processor is already out, so you can order the FX-8150 which is flagship model but it is currently out of stock at Newegg.

Keep in mind that is a mid-ATX case which may cause issues with large graphics cards, such as the Radeon 6790 which is almost 11 inches long. The flagship model of Bulldozer, FX-8150, is largely a waste since it and the 8120 are the same hardware only clocked differently.
