So I'm planning on building a PC for all my graphic art needs. I figure the PC should be good enough for some gaming on the side as well. Since this will be my first build, I wanted to ask for everyone's opinion as to the compatibility of the parts and for any recommendations for better component choices. Right now the price should be a little over $3,400. More with tax, of course. Any help would be appreciated.
i would go with an i7-2600k build that is a FAR better value, and lightning fast. I would also go with a single card graphics solution, this will ensure that the graphics muscle you are paying for will be usable with all your programs and games:
Alright, so I've updated most of the list. I think the only thing left to discuss might be the data drives I chose. I believe that the 3TB drives came out recently. And as always, feel free to give advice on anything else in the list as you see fit.
