Ah, I see. Well thanks for your help and service and if I have any more questions I'll ask,

as you all seem to be so helpful and reasonably responsive ( I assume you're busy).

 

Once again, thanks Phill.

Sorry to bother you again, lol.
I was wondering If i bought a fan control,
NZXT Sentry Mix 2 Fan Controller, https://uk.pcpartpic...troller-senmix2

could I hook up the fans, (https://uk.pcpartpic...fan-r4l2r20arr1)

and would I need additional equipment to do so.

Could it also be slotted into where you would put the dvd drive as stuff?

Also when building the pc, what kind of equipment would I need, as in bolts, screws, screwdriver etc and
if there's a kit that has all of this could you send a link? 

 

(Once again I just want to make sure I have all the stuff before I purchase it all)

A better fan control that is compatible with your case here it slots into one of the 5.25" drive bays.

 

All screws will be supplied, I use nothing more than an electricians screwdriver when assembling but you may like to wear an earthing strap an onboard speaker has previously been suggested by iammykyl.

Ah, Thanks for the tip once again, I was getting confused and stuff
so I had to double check on the forum to to see if it was a good idea to choose that fan control.

Also thanks for the link to the earthling strap, I don't think I'll need it, but hey - opinions do change...

 

Once again thanks Phill.

Also, I'll make sure Photoshop is installed on a different hard-drive to stop
those problems from occurring.

I think I did not explain well.

Install Photoshop on the System Drive, the SSD.   In the Photoshop preferences, you Choose where the scratch file is to be located, it can go on a mechanical drive for now.   You have 2 additional drives in your build, one for Data storage, and one for backups.   Put the PS scratch disk on the backup drive by doing the following,   Create two partitions, one of 100GB, (scratch), and the remainder as backup.

Because the drive is idle, unless backing up, Photoshop has exclusive use of that drive.   There won't be any conflicts as both operations will not run at the same time.

 

What version of PS will you be using?   This is early days yet, but here is an excellent Blog on optimizing that will give you some ideas > https://helpx.adobe....op-cs4-cs5.html

Ah, thanks for the more in-depth response ;)!
I'm not to quite sure by what you mean what version  of Photoshop?
Photoshop CC/CS6? or am I mistaken...? I'm sorry I probably seem like

a right "biscuit (nob)" by not knowing what you mean.
Yeah - thanks for the blog with those interesting ways to optimize Photoshop
for when I do get it.

Don't think you a biscuit, I still come across terms I need to fathom out.

"Photoshop CC/CS6? or am I mistaken...?" Yes, that's the latest release, version.   You used to buy Adobe software last year and you got so many upgrades free.   Now they switched and you have to rent/lease the software, by the month I think.   Something you will need to investigate.

Aha, Thanks.
Thanks for the understanding and generally helping me.
I'll look further into the Photoshop thing - seems odd.

If I have anymore questions I'll ask.

Thanks Iammykyl

Hello once again guys, slight change of plan!
I'm in need of a new pc build or somewhat cheaper for gaming that could run high-ultra perfectly fine
but I'm not sure if my graphics cards that I have that my bro left me could do the job.
If it can would it be a hassle to build a pc around the graphics card and the power supply or pc partpicker for me?
 

 

The graphics card is 

XFX CORE RADEON 7850 860M 2GB D5 2x mDP HDMI 2x DVI ( I have 2 of these)

http://www.amazon.co...M/dp/B007MJURAA

 

The power supply is

Corsair TX750M Enthusiast Series TX 750W ATX/EPS Modular 80 PLUS Bronze PSU

http://www.amazon.co...r/dp/B005DGEOJO

 

Please if you could build a pc around these 2 that is capable of running high end games (new ones) on ultra/high at good fps that would be amazing but if the gpu cant handle it please say so.

Gday KingJamieGrant.

I will of course be happy to help you but,  as the request is for a new build, please start a new Topic as adding it here may cause confusion and will limit the response from all members, as they will not see your post.
