This is my first time posting my build here. Have mostly been a lurker. Stalking your pc's lol. I bought the parts during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday week, check the prices.

This is basically my photo editing PC since I do photography. I also play some games but I am still using my old Asus HD7850. It'll be upgraded soon probably with a 1060 or RX480. I just bought the Sapphire RX 480 4GB! I read some good reviews about it and there's no reason for me to go 8GB. I could easily do Xfire next time if needed.

Also part of my future upgrade will be another pair of the Dominator DIMM's, white LED strips, the NZXT Kraken x62, some white fans as well since I'm reusing my old fans from my previous rig.

I would appreciate any comments.

Edit 1: Reviews placed for parts.

Part Reviews


Easily OC'ed to 4.7. Bought this for best performance on Lightroom and Photoshop.

CPU Cooler

Keeps my CPU relatively cool. Will still upgrade to NZXT X62 soon, I like the aesthetic look it has lol.


Chose this because I wanted the white and black theme. Really awesome mobo as well with all the features it has.


I was suppose to buy the vengeance pro but saw this on sale and got it really cheap. Nice subtle lighting and color to match my theme.


86 bucks for this M.2 on sale in Amazon, no brainer. Epic speed for boot up and my editing apps.


My game drive. Great price/performance ratio.


Got this from my old rig. Still up to the task for photo storage. Will get another one soon.

Video Card

Runs everything at 60+ fps on ultra settings at 1080p while running cool. Will run Xfire in the future.


HardwareCanucks case of the year, what more can I say?

Power Supply

1$ per watt sale lol. Got it from jet really cheap. Another no brainer.


Old monitor but accurate colors.


Cheap keyboard with macro buttons help me out with Lightroom/Photoshop.


I don't see a need to buy anything more expensive than this for a mouse.


Cheap price for a 2.1 speakers. Great sound quality and it has a control pod for headset jack and AUX.

Hey this is actually very cheap, you were lucky to catch the sales on BF and CM.

It's a result of watching all the deals online. Slickdeals site was a big help mate.
