And some powerful PSU

You may thing it's too expensive configuration but if calculate it carefully you will see that you will have to change your computer probably in next 5-6 years but if you thing to buy something cheaper you will have to change your PC in less two years And you will have to change 3 computers in six years and you will spent more money for less performance. So my advice is to buy some thing more powerful and do your job how it has to be done. For graphic programs such as Photoshop and Dreamweaver you need more RAM and CPU power so you don't need good graphic card.
Thats tons of power, you can get away with a cheaper system, but you did ask for the best setup.

Well, looking for the fastest computer is not a problem, the problem is fitting as much numbercrunshing as you can in as little money as possible.

What software do you use and what is your budget? Without that information it's impossible to help you decide.
