So I am not sleeping. Decided I can do this and have got myself a bit too excited. I plan to build in September (need to save a bit more cash)
Budget is under $2000 CDN
I am not a gamer, but want the fastest computer I can get for my budget. My main use are photo editing programs. PHOTOSHOP.
So below is what I have come up with. No knowledge going into this, but a lot of research done so far. Would greatly appreciate feedback, suggestions and critiques.
I also want a small computer and looks are really important to me. So to leap of the cliff I purchased the case. Corsair 350D. Now I have to build it.
1. Video Card, Ram and Motherboard are really shaky areas for me. My knowledge too weak. Are my selections in these areas making sense? Also the look is important as the case has a window. I do not want flashy. Looking for silver, black and white. If any colour some green. And every time I read something online I want to upgrade so am having great difficulty keeping these to my needs.
2. The storage may look odd, but this is my thinking. 840 pro is for my system. The two other SSDs are for my photoshop cache and my current files. The WD HD is for all my older and support files. Again suggestions or critiques welcome.
3. I also think I need/want (?) to switch out the case fans with something new (looking for as quiet as possible)
