First Build, looking for input.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
All,

This will be my first build, wondering if you would not mind taking a look at the list of things put together and let me know what I am missing or if I should change any of the parts listed. This will be mostly for gaming and photo editing/storage.

Thanks!

Thanks for the replies! I already have a 4K monitor I use for photo editing with photoshop CS6. Not real sure about SLI, I have it on my laptop that I put together a few years ago and it was a bit of a pain in the butt. I do more editing than gaming.
