    Hi there,
    I am planning on putting together the following system. It will be in my office, so I am not using a HTPC form factor case. Could you take a look through the components and let me know if you see any potential compatibility problems?
    My main goal for this PC is to use Photoshop and Vegas Pro for blog videos. I don't play many PC games, but I may start with this new rig. Do you see any issues running the most recent games at the highest settings with this setup? Thanks again for all of your help!

    Everything looks pretty good to me, however, I would personally avoid Hitachi hard drives. I have had 2 die on me fairly quickly. Western Digital and Seagate I have never had a problem with. Just my two cents. Everything else looks good though.
