    Here is what I came up with.

    Gave you a CPU with more threads (you will enjoy those with video editing) that is also cheaper.

    Gave you motherboard for CPU.

    Gave you cheaper RAM.

    Gave you a cheaper but just as good PSU

    Gave you cheaper optical drive.
  2. Awesome! I'll select you as solution when i get on my pc tomorrow :)
