    i7 would be better than 16GB RAM for rendering and editing recorded videos :)
    Just add 20$ and get this build
  2. @ahmadjon thats not a good build. Parts arent in the same good range, only the gpu is good, the rest is junk.


    Replace mobo with a h87 or z87. H87 if you wont overclock.

    Replace cpu with an i5-4670k or a i5-4570.

    Change case to 300r, overall better.

    Change the 770 to an evga or asus, better quality overall. The rest of build is good.

    B85 is good chipset for non OC'able CPU, MSI Twin Frozr version is quality good one and I heard bad thing about Asus's 770 model and last for rendering and recording 4771 which is non OC'ble is better than 4670k! :)
