Anyone can help me? Pleaseeeeeeeeeee

Please only ask your question once and be patient.
Regular members here read all the messages in every topic.
If you have a question, please make the Topic Title clear and be patient for a response.
If someone knows the answer, they will give it. The person who knows the answer to your question may be on the other side of the globe, just going to bed.
BTW, as a dedicated Mac user, I am not in a position to comment on your windows box.
hiberfil.sys is a copy of your RAM that the computer uses when it come out of hibernation to load everything back into RAM. I done away with my hiberfil.sys in windows 7. If you have 64GB of RAM the file should be large indeed. There is no absolute necessarity for having a hibernation feature for RAM. (If you use virtual computers for different OS each one will have a hibernated file)
I don't use a dual boot because you have to pick which OS you are using at the time of launch. I have a second C drive that has my older OS on it that I use when I need to access older equipment like my dedicated film scanner. I also have a second copy of my Windows 7 C drive on a second physical hard drive so if I ever have problems I don't have to reload everything from scratch. I would just need to reload stuff that I upgraded since I duped my C drive.
You may be wasting money if you expect increased performance using 2 video cards. Since they are identical should be no problem with Photoshop, but performance will be about same as using one card.
Unless you like the features of Win 8 I would recommend staying with Win 7. Win 8 in not viewed as a step up in the OS by many. For plug ins make sure they are compatable with 64 bit.
There is no need to use individual SSD. Buy one larger unit as you will be able to use it more effetely. If you have everything on a SSD drive your performance will be blazing fast.
Read this for performance checklist. http://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/optimize-performance-photoshop-cs4-cs5.html
In case I would need to have both Seven and Eight I believe that there is no choice:
And a last question (for the moment):
Where do I put the pagefile and hiberfil.sys?
Having 64GB of RAM these two files are huge and, among other things, in a Desktop PC I would say that hibernation is useless.
No choice.... Does someone have a gun on you or does you livelihood depend on you running windows 7 and windows 8. I see no compelling reason to update a desktop PC to Windows 8. It may even be a step backwards. In time when Microsoft has released windows 8 SP1 and there is talk about dropping support for windows 7 windows may be the way to go
Windows like all if its stuff on the boot disk and make the page file somewhere around 100% of real ram size plus some percentage, Hibernation file is around 100% Ram size and if you are running a plugged-in desktop with a UPS and you want to cut your power cost you can get by with using sleep mode. However Windows has problems with some hardware devices and is unable to use some devices after waking up after sleep or resuming from hibernation. I never have my machine hibernate, So I used the command line power configuration command to disable hibernation. That will delete the hibernation file off your SSD. Also 64GB is a lot of ram for still image processing so I install less so Windows use up all my SDD which I also want to use for Photoshop swap space. I also do not many to pay top dollar for the fastest and greatest CPU they are price too high. Price for performance means more to me. Though I can put together a system I no longer do. For I can buy one put together with what I want at a cost below what it would cost me. It also come with legal OS and a three year warrantee. I don't need to service the machine myself or worry about the warrantees from all the vender I used to get parts. I also don't feel its necessary to buy new IMO there is nothing wrong with buying a refurbish machine that come with a three year warrantee. The hare Part is catching one that you want. Worthwile machine that are put on the refurbished list for sale are snatched up very quickly you need to chect the list ofter a snatch a good one for your self.
Last month my old PC was on its death bed was time to replace. So I went an looked are CPU prices. Here is what I saw then the prices have cone down ever more now.
What I wound up with from Dell Outlet:

If I bought all new from Dell the price tag would have been over $4k
Thank you all for the answers: I realize now how much of your preparation is far from mine .... I feel like a stupid old woman now.
@ Station_two: I apologize for my "offenses" due primarily to the fact that I have a new PC here for 4 days and did not want to start working on it without having indications by those who know more than me. In addition, the language's problem does not help me explain better ..... Excuse me. I'm tryng to speak english and french.......
As I understand you judge my computer excessive and oversized. Too much RAM, CPU expensive for the performance and the use of Windows Eight not recommended.
After reading many replies to posts by Noel Carboni, I also would have chosen a Dell T 5600, but after attempting to make an online order I gave up: in practice for these computers you must (rightly) speak with someone necessarily and discuss the order. But I was not able to do in English. And that's why I tried to fend for myself by ordering everything online and having to accept an installation of Eight. Without Eight the store would not have even tested the PC. As another solution they required me to purchase another Windows Seven .....
On the other hand the best shop I found was on the other side of Canada ....
I did what I could for my current capacity.
If I well understand, you advise me to have OS and programs on the same SSD (hence the 250 GB), delete hiberfile.sys, decrease the RAM and remove a graphics card.
For the page file I assume is to move somewhere else.
I'll try to do my best.
Excuse me for my stupidity and thanks to each of you for the answers.
I know this is an older post, but a lot of people still use it as a point of reference for this topic. I've gone into a lot of detail on the "How and Why" in select parts for Building a Photoshop CS6 Computer (PC), but with the release of CC I've also updated that information a bit, not because CC does anything special, but I've had a chance to compare and verify the specifics over the past few months.
One of the main things people get wrong is how Video Cards/GPU actually works in Photoshop and what it does, and how the multiple hard drives effect efficiency. Yes you can get by with old Dual Core and 4GB of Ram and no video card, but not if you are doing PAID high end Print work like posters as someone else pointed out.

If you want you can skipto some configurations I've built depending on how you use Photoshop as a Photographer, Designer or if you are a Video Editor who happens to use Photoshop. The builds can be customized and ordered outright. Enjoy!
