Hello! Im building a gaming PC (For home use also) and I was wondering if any one had suggestions for me! I am only 14 so money is an object and Im saving myself, my parents are not paying for it. I will be doing some YouTube videos and I was wondering if 8GB RAM will do it for rendering videos? I wont be doing to much rendering and I can render overnight if I have to. Here is my current build:

Also I do not want to spend $500 on SonyVegas so are any other suggestions that will do it for me?

Thanks for the help dudes!!!

Luke

great build, but drop the extra fan cuz your case only supports 1 120mm and it comes with one already. and yes, 8gb is enough, but if you can afford it 12gb or 16gb is great.

Okay good to know about the fan! :D  I think I will put the money from the fan to get 12GB RAM. I know the fan will not be enough to keep the total the same but I think I will do it anyway.

Thanks so so so much man!

Don't spend $30 on those two corsair fans. These fans are WAY quieter than the corsair fans (35dba vs 19dba) and move the same amount of air due to a better design.
Either spend $30 on the 4 cougars: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
OR
spend $28 on these two Cougars if you plan to mount them horizontally to the top of the case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Also, a GTX 660 OC edition would give you better performance for the same price as the 750Ti.

Believe it or not I respond to you like a week later! Lol! Yeah I wont be playing demanding games (Minecraft, Trials Evo 2) so I don't need a better GPU. I should get about what 125 FPS on Minecraft?

in minecratf, you should be able to get max settings at 100fps+, and if you want to record while playing you will still probly play well over 100fps, and you could get a higher resolution resource pack too :D

Yeah I use Faithful 3 32x32 texture pack for minecraft currently. I chose to go with a fully modular PSU because it just seemed like it would be a good idea, also I chose to go with a 140mm side panel fan with the corsair 400r case. Here is the updated build.
