  1. maybe somthing like this?

    typically amd graphics card are better bang for buck but i hear the cuda cores in nvidia cards help alot when it comes to video editing. also i went with the 4gb version as bf4 recomends 3gb. and it only comes in 2/4GB flavours.
  2. Honestly I would drop the memory to 8gb to start, and spend the money saves on a gpu like the 770 or 670, or even a HD 7970, unless you wanna go cheap and wait for the amd R200 series and replace the low end gpu later. This being that his priority is set on a gaming more than video editing, and can later throw in 8gb of ram. Correct me if you think I am wrong. Cheers on the build ;)
  3. Yes i would love a pc with 8gb juat for that processing and having.multiple programs open

    Sweet go for a gtx 670 or a a gtx 770 then and you are all set, this will tear through all games for the next year at least
  5. anyone else got some builds for me the other two do look very nice
  6. I think I'm only gunna have 8gb ram as gaming is more of an importance than the video editing side

    This is the Build i am making its alittle over your budget but if you get a 600w psu instead of 750w and a 7950 instead of 7970 you can probably save the £50. Maybe swap the fx 8320 for fx 6300 if you need to save a lil more money.

    I Think its right in the sweet spot for Price/Performance.
