    Proper Build for a Computer to Efficiently Run Creative Cloud

    alkaplan Level 1

      I'm looking to build my first custom computer and want a little advice on the build.  I have a general idea and have done research on my own, but I'm not entirely confident that there isn't a problem, either the cooling systems, enough power supply, or with the graphics card.  Does this all look like it will work together?


      Intel® Core™ i7 4820K Processor (4x 3.70GHz/10MB L3 Cache)

      Intel Liquid CPU Cooling System - Standard 120mm Fan

      32 GB (8GB x4) DDR3-1866 ADATA XPG V2

      NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2G - single card

      Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4 -- 4x PCI-E 2.0x16

      850 Watt - AZZA Dynamo

      1 TB - 64M Cache, 10000 RPM, 6.0Gb/s - single main drive

      2TB - 32M Cache, 7200RPM, 6.0Gb/s - dual extra drives


      I'm looking to work both personally and professionally on this machine, and to use it in the future with a Cintiq as well.  I will run dual monitors.  I work mostly in Illustrator, although Photoshop, Indesign and After Effects will also need to be as efficient as possible.


      Any thoughts/suggestions?
