i7 4790K

Asus Z97M Plus, currently with 2x8GB Crucial RAM, with slots for another 2x8

Asus Nvidia GTX 950 Strix, because I wanted DisplayPort and HDMI.

Dell UP3216 (connected via DP)

Build mainly for photo editing, though mostly I browse and stream, I wanted something substantially quicker than my 2011 i5 iMac (16GB RAM). Initially thinking I'd just need to purchase a new external display, it became obvious than my iMac a more serious issues.

LR 6.3 seems to be working fine. Gratifying that it is much speedier than my iMac. I've not processed any multi image panos or HDRs yet.


The components were chosen based on reputation (warranty, build quality, reviews etc), cost, potential RAM increase, 4K video (DisplayPort & HDMI). Biggest cost was the Samsung 1TB SSD.
