I am looking for the right parts to build a custom build desktop PC.
Main Uses (Most often/least often): Music Production/1080p Video Editing/Data Crunching/Web Browsing
What I'm Looking to Buy: GPU/Video Card (with 2GB of Graphical RAM), Soundcard, CPU (MUST be intel, i7 preferred; higher-end i5 would work too), Motherboard, RAM (12GB Low Latency), Power Supply (Could be cheap but has to be relaible).
What I have/don't need for the build: Case, HDDs, Optical Disc Drives, Fans, SATA Cables, Monitor, Keyboard/Mouse.
Preferred Store: Amazon, Newegg, Frys Electronics.
So I am looking to spend $500 for these components, and I would go to a maximum of $700 if the parts I describe are more expensive.
