I'm buying a new computer for school. I'm doing 3D related work, working with 3D programs, rendering, animation, and what not. I put together this computer and it came out to about $2500 with dual screen monitors. I checked all the parts at TigerDirect.ca because there's a location near me so I can just go there and buy them personally. Please tell me if these parts are compatible with each, if the price is good and if the performance and quality are good.

Thanks a lot.
