How does this look for a gaming/ overall development machine?

It is going to be used mainly for gaming, but I will be doing some development work on it and a bit of video editing/ photosynthing. The MAX I am looking to spend on it is $2,500.

Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated.

  1. Unless you want to save money there's nothing I'd change, honestly.
  2. What's the point of the 2 x 1TB hard drives? Are you looking to run them in RAID 0 or are you going to use one for backups?
