1000$ Gaming/Video Editing Build

Hello guys, as the title says, i'm looking for advice on how to build a decent PC that is specifically made for gaming and not too heavy video editing. I have had no experience whatsoever with building PC's.

Approximate Purchase Date: Hopefully this month.

Budget Range: 1000 US Dollars

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Video Editing, Gaming Footage Recording, watching YouTube videos, surfing the Web.

Are you buying a monitor: No, i've got that covered ;)

Do you need to buy OS: No, i've got a copy.

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: I have no preferences, although i heard Newegg often has rebates.

Location: Netherlands, but i will surely be shipping from the USA, so that's no problem.

Parts Preferences: Liquid Cooling, apart from that absolutely none, i need advice from people with experience on this site, so choose the parts that you think fit best for my usage.

Overclocking: I will be Overclocking, and i will surely overclock it over 4 Ghz.

SLI or Crossfire: Only if i really need to.

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080 and a second monitor that's 1600x900, although the second one won't be used for gaming, just for looking at other stuff.

Additional Comments: I would like a build that is able to run BF3 ultra @ 1920x1080 @ ~60fps, as that kinda is a standard for Gaming PC's nowadays.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Im upgrading from my old OEM PC because it seems that it's slowly dying after 6 years of usage, i wanna build a PC myself because it will be cheaper in the long run as if i were to buy a 1000 Dollar OEM PC for half the performance.

Thank you very much.

  3. So why are you ordering parts fron newegg if you live in Netherlands?
    Order parts from mindfactory or HW versand. Alternate is good place too. Maybe bit more expensive.
    Case king is good place too order parts and case.

    This my build is from mindfactory

    For editing is good to get more memyry. 16GB is better.

    Better CPU is 4770k

    If you need to drop price down. Then Smaller HDD / SSD and then cooler . then drop video card to GTX 760.

    Hope you get good build :) Good luck :)
  4. If you really want to go liquid cooling, do it yourself(a res, pump, rad, CPU block and some tubing) this leaves expansion to the GPU if wanting too and you can make one that is a few dollars more than an all in one and get much better performance. If you want to do it the lazy way, i suggest getting an H220 or H320 as they are the superior all in one Cooler. Or just get an air cooler because this is a budget build.
  5. Thanks for the response guys :)
  6. No problem, we're here for that, sir !
