So heres what I have so far: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3dCRb
I only have the peripherals, monitor, OS, and Case. please fill in the rest for me.

My budget is $1500 and ive spent about $300 so far so $1200 is for the rest. I would like a very smooth gaming/video editing PC that can run Titanfall, BF4, LoL and can handle lots of video editing and web surfing. So yeah thank you!

    Main purpose is gaming, and whichever one is better but if I had to choose then NVIDIA would be good.
  3. What will be your main game played?
  4. This is with a raedon gpu

    Since your video editing, it maybe CPU intensive, assuming that you will use programs like after effects, vegas pro, cinema 4d, Photoshop ect.
    So you will need an i7 and 16gigs of ram to be safe, besides games ar already demanding i7 as reccomended spec.
