I think ruling out overclocking would limit the performance you can get now and in the future and it doesnt 'really' cost extra; its something you can build the potential in now and then use it later after buying an aftermarket cooler down the road.

I know there will be people who can do a mock build much better and faster than I can so I will just leave some suggestions.

CUDA might be helpful if you use the Adobe Suite (I dont know how much OpenCL they support at the moment)

An IPS Monitor would be really awesome but not strickly necessary.  

Due to this being PC, you should make sure you always leave room for improvements/upgrades in the future.  Like an unlocked processor for future overclocking, room for more RAM/HDDs later.  To keep your initial costs down you could go with a single 7200rpm drive and partition the OS to its own section so that upgrading to an SSD in the future would be slick.

Hey, first of all thanks for the info about the software reqs!

Second, if you can just post a build so I can get a starting point it would be awesome. I'll not buy a specified build because I will customize it! :)
