Hi All this is my first post and it is concerning a setup i wish to build. I thought of buying a high spec desktop but then looked into building my own for the same price and it looks like i could build a more powerful stylish machine myself.
I will be using this machine for gaming and my adobe master collection cs5
Here is what i plan to build and the rough prices i have found.
Please let me know the following -
1. Will it work?
2. Any improvements i could make (same price ranges)
3. Any other comments
