I built my first build about 8 years ago it was great, but alas its time to move on and cant upgrade because of the old MOBO.
This will be my 2nd build.
Things to note:
Keeping it under $1,800 but less with good parts is always welcome. I would prefer something in the $1,500 range
I am not a overclocker, I have not had stable success with it.
I prefer a more turn key build were I can plug and play.
I use my comp for GIS, with very, very large imagery which have lengthy draw times when editing.
I also use AI and PS, again large images to manipulate.
I do play games like WOW, SIMCITY and MWO.
I am looking for another 8 years of stability from this 2nd Build. I have all the accessory, extra hard drives, optical's and an OS. My office has very poor air flow and the comp is tucked away under a desk.
After doing some research I have put together this build. I think its a green light with compatibility and the plug and play aspect of the build.
Any tips, ideas or "no-no's" are most welcome.
