this is a computer i built for myself just for fun and now i am thinking about actually buy it.

so before i do something i wanted to consult some more pro users (since i am far from being one) for your opinion and if there are any changes you would recommand to increase compatibility or lower the cost.
the computer is going to be used for gaming and photo/video editing.

thanks.

Buy this. I doubt you are planning to use 2 GPUs right.

I don't understand, have i placed the msg on the wrong place? Should it be under components?

And why not buying the one i've published here? Isn't the 2011 configuration better then 1155? And i know the i7 is better then the i5, so i don't get why did you just changed all the parts i chose?

You wasted $500 on components that has no big impact on performance over the cheaper stuff.

Not really, i7 is not better than i5. They are equal in gaming. The 2011 configuration is not cost effective for what you plan to do. :)
