Hi all,


Sorry for such a common thread but, I just need the components I am looking at getting sense checking before laying out a large chunk of cash.


I've read the related threads, but as PC's move on at such great pace they are a little out of date so your input would be appreciated in looking at what I list below and either modifying or just alieviating my worries, so here goes.

off the top of my head the only thing I would change is the SSD. The V4 is not bad... but it is rather old. I would look at a newer Intel or Samsung SSD for this type of build.

Also, I think that the new nVidia pro GPUs are coming out (maybe they are out already?), so the 4000 may not be the best choice. I will look into this more a little later when I have more time as I am not quite up to speed on the pro GPU market.

Anywho, the rest of the build looks pretty good at a glance!
