This build is a work in progress just, just got it up and running a couple of days ago with old drives and graphics I already had, my plan is a GTX780 plus 3x 3Tb drives in a couple of months as of this month my funds have been diverted to traveling.
I have only done a couple of builds before about 10 years ago, my last pc being a Dell XPS420 6 years old
This new build will be for gaming and photoshop, occasional video editing. (this is what I do www.ianpayne.com )
Im currently using a Dell U2711 2560x1440 and an LG 23in for photoshop tools
Mobo was bought second hand, 2 months old
I would like to buy 2 more 27in Dells as side screens for gaming and ps tools but this will come later sometime after my build.
HDD selection is still open but i'd like to stick with WD as i've always known them to be super quiet (I absolutly hate crackly drives)
The case choice is, it just looks great! 30/6/2013 bought a mint used one from ebay for £93
Ram, just bought 2/6/2013 after a price drop alert on here for amazon, saved a fortune, near on half price, I know its overkill but i'm a sucker for price drops and discounts, my intention is to use part of that ram as a scratch disk for photoshop.
The SSD for a spur of the moment purchase using an ebuyer discount code
