Processor : Intel Core i7 4770
Mainboard: Z87 KILLER
Hardisk : shitachi 1TB sata3
Memory (Ram) : Corsair CMZ8GX3M1A1600C10B (1 X 8GB)

Casing : Cooler Master K282 GAMING CHASSIS SIDE WINDOW
power supply: 550w superflower
ssd: Samsung SSD 840 EVO 120GB

this cost around 1150 USD where i live. it actually exceeds my budget :|
not planning to over clock (since i dont know what it is, how to do it, and i heard it can damage the components)
the games i will be playing are battlefield 4, bunch of new games from steam too, and a few dayz and rust. a little game like amnesia too, just for nostalgia lol

i'll be playing while recording, and then editing through vegas pro, and then uploading it to youtube.
while waiting for it to be done (the upload to youtube), i will be running photoshop to make thumbnails for youtube, ORRR maybe play some more while recording again

hahaha i dont know if this will be enough, so i need your help guys!what do you think? thank you!
btw, loving the forum here. so helpful

yes,
but to optimize it, you have to get dual channel ram
2x 4GB or 2x 8GB

and i5 is for video editing too, just a mere seconds behind i7, unless you make money from it, i7 isnt worth it

okay then, like this:

Processor : Intel Core i7 4770
Mainboard: Z87 KILLER
Hardisk : shitachi 1TB sata3
Memory (Ram) : Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8 (2 X 4GB)
DVD : RW 22X
Graphic (VGA) : geforce gtx 770
Casing : Cooler Master K282 GAMING CHASSIS SIDE WINDOW
power supply: 550w superflower

what do you think?
oh, and another question if you dont mind. can i add another 2x4GB RAM later on in the future if i have save enough money? or is there any parts that i have to replace/add/double if i want to do that?
