Please review my build


Jul 19, 2008
Hello. I am hoping you guys can review my build and give me some feedback. My new computer will be mainly for gaming and photo editing. My current computer is 4-5 years old and does not do well with Lightroom and 36mp raw photo files. I will be running two monitors. Any feedback and suggestions are very much appreciated.

Oh wow, you've got ton of money to spend. And if you're willing to do so, then you're all set. But do you really need Win8? It has no benefit comparing to win7. Also are you sure you need acronis? Might save a bit there.
