I'm beginning to put together specs for a new computer. As things stand they're as follows:
Processor - Intel Core 2 Duo E6700
Sound Card - Creative X-Fi Extreme
Motherboard - Gigabyte GA_P35_DQ6 (Socket 775)
Graphics Card - GeForce 8800 GTS 320MB GDDR3
Hard Drive - Hitachi Deskstar T7K500 NCQ 500GB SATA-II
Memory - Crucial Ballistix 4GB
Monitor - Dell 22" x 2
For the moment I'm looking for advice on any clashes between the hardware above (stuff that may not be compatible and things like possible bottlenecks).
Is there anything big missing (I have a keyboard/mouse, network card, speakers and a case which are being ported over to the new computer).
Are things like the graphics card and memory overkill for the system. I don't plan to run the latest games on it but it needs to be able to handle having a few apps like photoshop open at the same time and be able to cope with the dual 22" monitors.
