So I am looking to build a new PC. The rig will be used for gaming and some video editing and some photoshop. Some on the things I require is that the case be a Corsair or NZXT Phantom and at least 8GB of 1866 ram. I will also need a OS along with the system. I would also like some sort of aftermarket cpu cooler, a hyper 212 would probably do the trick. If someone could please help me figure something out with my requirements it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Nice build above by doughnuts, though would change the mobo, won't touch MSI due to poor QC, not worth taking a chance, might look at the Asus Plus or Gryphon

I couldn't quite sneak it in with out going to far over, but if the op can spend a bit more it would be worth the price.

No complaints, good build, may have to pass on a couple beers to squeeze the plus but thought I'd throw it out ;)
