          IMO your crazy.  I feel you would be better off looking at Dell outlet web site and looking into getting an a older high end industry strength workstation with xeons processors with ECC RAM and a Photoshop supported GPU video card. You can always add SSd and more disk the disk controller will also support raid configurations.


          Why build your own when you can get a pre built machine which meets your needs with legal OS and warrantee at a reasonable price.

            I really hope you have Megabytes and Gigabytes confused there.


            You need a couple Gig of RAM, and a Terabyte or more of disk space these days.

              Out of curiosity, what's your budget?


              I follow exactly JJMack's philosophy myself.
