I was looking at one of these high-res monitors in 27" and realized not many video cards can handle this resolution.  The plan was to pair this monitor with one of the Dell XPS 8500 deals (i7, ~$700).

It's mainly for photoshop, some video editing.

When I price my own build, it comes out to much more than Dell's XPS 8500.  Where are they cutting corners?

Also, does an SSD drive have a role in this machine?


All decent video cards made within the last few years should be able to handle it.

SSD would be good as your O/S boot drive.
