I’m looking to take a leap and build my own computer for the first time using top components. Any advice, tips, criticisms would be appreciated.
I need to know if the list below will work together. Am I missing anything? Have I chosen something that is really not needed?
I am a photographer and deal with mass amounts of photos, videos, music etc. I also want to play games occasionally, or watch a DVD.
I haven't decided on what kind of monitor yet or a mouse or keyboard. For a monitor I will need one that accurate reflects photographs for editing. I am pretty close to budget. I'll spend around 2400 or so. I am starting from scratch, bringing no parts from other places. All new.
How does the following combination stack up? Thank you in advance for any help to the above questions and your time.
