Hey, need some advice on this spec please.
My budget is ~£1200 ex Case. primarily for running Adobe Creative Suite and occasional Gaming at 1920x1080+. I wanted something very upgradeable and fast, and this is what I came up with:
Choose Your Own Case - PC-A77F
I'm not 100% sure about this case - there are 4 USB 3.0 ports on it and I don't really need 3.0 but really like the case, will the motherboard be able to support them or use them as 2.0? or would it be better to go for the PC-A70F?
