I'm currently in Australia studying abroad, but when I get home I plan on building a new desktop. My current Sony Vaio laptop is garbage for a lot of the things I need it to do. The screen is terrible, it can't handle photoshop cs5, and I don't like the fact that when I run a secondary monitor off of it the screens aren't the same resolution. Also, I don't have an hdmi port.
So, I've been doing my research for a couple days and I've made this list of components I plan on buying. The base components are a kit off of newegg, with a few additions of my own. It's a little over my budget at this point so I either need to play with my budget a little bit or drop some components.
Processor: Intel i5 2500k
Motherboard: ASUS P8P67
Graphics: ASUS ENGTX560 TI DCII/2DI/1GD5 GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2x4gb)
Power Supply: Corsair 750W
Harddrive: Seagate 1TB
SSD: Crucial M4 64GB
Case: Cooler Master CM690II
Monitor: 2x ASUS VW246H 24" w/ Huey Pro
And Windows 7
As of now, I feel like the graphics card might be more than what I need. I feel like that's a place where I could save a bit on my budget. That card is $250 and I feel like I could get by with a cheaper one. Anything else I'm missing or I could do better for a similar budget?
The most important need is photo editing. Gaming may be a factor but I don't do a lot of it. Thoughts?
