Hi, I'm planning to buy a new PC (mine is 5 years old), and I was wondering if what I have selected make sense (see part list below).

It will be used for gaming, audio recording and photo-editing. I got my own audio interface which work trough a PCI firewire card that I will swap from my old pc. Also, I got a 1080p 60Hz monitor which i'm fine with it.

So what are your opinion-critique-suggestions about this build ?

Thx in advance for your feedback.
