Hello guys,

I have always enjoyed playing games and making youtube videos so now i'm sick of my current system due to not being able to run latest games and very sluggish in Sony Vegas. I want to try building my own computer which can render and edit video's in both adobe programs and Sony Vegas. Plus being able to play the latest games.

This is a rough idea of the build i want but i am a bit concerned i have left things out, i also am concerned about the price tag on it. Is there things what i have what is not needed for what i want to do?

there is no reason to pick 2011 socket, unless you want 6 cores CPU
i believe you better stick with i7 4770K and Z87 mobo

Thanks AMD radeon for your information. I didn't realize. If I changed that would my build be able to do alot and I I mean alot of effects in sony vegas without it going slugish or glitching. Plus would it be able to run the latest games while recording?

i made some changes :
newer Corsair H105, thicker radiator
use GTX 780 from Gigabyte, the price is close to GTX 770
850W gold from XFX, enough to run SLI GTX 780
no need sound card unless you have $1000 sound system
cheaper mobo, better ram for OC 2133 MHz CL9

Thanks for the quick reply again AMD :) . I noticed you changed the video card to a 3gb one from 4gb. I thought the bigger it was the better it will be for video editing. With heaps of effects.

Never mind you knocked the price down a fair bit so buying another video card if I find 3gb not enough to be no problem. Thank you AMD alot. Once I build it, I'll be sure to let you know how it goes :) . Glad I found this site haha. I was a bit lost and nervous about choosing components.
