I am helping my bro buy a new system, part by part, and have come to a tentative list of parts that I hope are good. What I am looking for is any advice on the configuration I have chosen. Please tell me if you think they are good quality brands, and point out any possibly unforseen problems with compatability or performance. Also, feel free to recommend what you would do instead. This computer will be used as 3d rendering workstation (using Maya) and a little bit of gaming on the side.
