I am trying to build my First Workstation PC and i need help from all the experts and i will appreciate their valuable opinion .
I have a little knowledge in Hardware but based on the research i have done till now i am looking at below oprion
CPU/Processor - I 7 4770K
Motherboard - ASUS Sabertooth z87
Video /Graphics card - Please help ( I will do some photo work using Photoshop etc )
Storage - Please help
Cooling Option - Please suggest
Case - Fractal Design Midi / Define
RAM - Please suggest
Power Supply - Please suggest
OS - I will install Ubuntu / Fedora
DVD / Optical Drive - Not needed.
SLI - YEs
Keyboard , Monitor , Mouse - Not needed.
Please provide your inputs.
Storage wise, probs a 120 or 250GB SSD paired with as many 2,3 or 4TB HDDs as you need (choose best price/GB you can find) Please provide an overall cost for us?
16GB of RAM would probably be ideal for editing, and a good seasonic 600W power supply.
GPU is difficult to recommend with no price idea
Added ssd, changed ram (ram speed has no effect on photoshop though this 1866 kit was only $3 more than 1600), changed gpu (although still very much overkill for photo editing and photoshop uses opengl and opencl if you were wondering), and changed mobo. Any reason why you wanted the sabertooth? And do you really need h100i? A $30 cooler will still get you to about 4.4ghz. If the oc is really just a hobby since it is a horrible price/performance then you should be looking at a better psu too.
Thank you very much really helpful.
I went with Asus sabertooth for their 5 year warranty but i if you feel ASRock is is better then i will go with that as i don't have much exp and i trust this forum.
Also i will not be doing any gaming it is just for my development purpose and i am not sure how much heat it will be so i added h100i but if that is overkill then i will go with normal cooling option.
Please confirm review if anything better can be done , +- 100 is fine in my budget.
