As I'm leaving america to UK, I want to get the components to build the mac. I had quick look in the forum related topics, but I couldn't figure out what will the best for me. I'll use it mainly for Photoshop/Aperture and a bit on Finalcut pro, I rarely play games.

It'll be great if you guys recommend me some set which could be available in Best-buy/Staples/Micro center

Here are my estimates:

Mother board: I prefer to buy GIGABYTE board (~180$)

CPU: i7 (~280$)

RAM: 8 GB

According to your recommendation I'll buy the rest GPU, SDD, PSU, CASE, CPU COOLER

Also I want to buy only the expensive items like Motherboard, CPU, RAM and I hope to buy rest of them in UK for the similar price.

sorry to mention that it's "urgent" but I'm flying on sunday. thanks a lot.

Don't buy from any of those places, it's a giant rip off. Go for newegg or amazon.

Disagree, Microcenter has excellent prices.

Do you have a Fry's electronics close by? They match prices with online stores. Or look for a local custom PC shop and see if you can barter (research prices online first) for a package deal of parts.

There is a compatibility wiki here, and a custo build list that lists all of these parts out for you on the main site. Check it out! Good luck!

Oh, hm, you're right. I'd never heard of them actually. I just assumed since they were being lumped in with staples/bestbuy that it was more of the same.

Sorry about that.

I live in Boston, there's no Frys shop here. I'll search for alternative shop and compare prize, if you know anything plz let me know.

I couldn't find the wiki page, can you provide me the link. thanks all
