I am looking for a new computer..My main purpose is for video editing and graphic designing plus gaming such as watch dogs or GTA series. I am planing on using Adobe Premiere Pro, After effect, Adobe suite cs6, Visual studio, 3ds max. Would the i5 be okay, or should I keep my original plan with the i7?
Thanks in advance :)

Hi -- Stay with the i7. If you were just gaming, I'd say save the $$ & go with the i5. But, if you are
doing any appreciable video editing/work, the i7 is the way to go.

If you have not yet purch the other parts, consider a better quality PSU, very few Coolermaster
PSU's are worthy. Look for a good quality 550w Haswell compatible model.

If you would like suggestions, post your budget and location.

Hi again - Sorry for getting back late, been photo editing all day & lost track of things.
The In-Win 550 has only one pcie 6/8 pin connector, the GTX 770 requires 2.
Let me look on the site you linked & see what I can find for PSU & MOBO.

Are there other sites you can purchase from and what are your budgets for mobo and psu?

Hi again - The gig H87 HD3 is fine for that CPU, just need to find an appropriate PSU.

Hi, thanks, that's really a good news.There are few other websites but they are not good. My budget for the PSU is about 150$. What's the brand you recommend ?

Hi again - The site you linked offers only Coolermaster and InWin PSU's. It doesn't list the price of the InWin 650,
But it must be less than the InWin 750 which is within your budget. So, as long as that 650 is less than the rs 15,500
for the 750, go with it. Even tho a good 550w unit would power your build, the GreenMe 550 is short
one pcie connector, so go with the 650.

However, the GreenMe PSU's are not Haswell CPU ready. Won't cause any damage to your system, but
you would need to disable the sleep state in BIOS.
One of the reasons I asked if there was another site.

I can't get the item model # for the Coolermaster 650 @ rs 13,500. Comes up all garbled when I click on it. Coolermaster has some poor PSU's, but also has some that are OK, but without the model # I can't tell
which one it is. It also might not be Haswell certified. If you are able to get the model #, please post it.

Hi again - Good luck with your build. Keep in mind a good quality 550w PSU is enough for your system
as long as it has 2 pcie connectors for the gtx770. A 650 does no harm, just more money up front.

Hi Winnie,

I have some ideas to share.
You can consider i7 4770K Processor.
Hunt for GTX 770 4GB or GTX 760 4GB cards.Because the price difference between GTX 770 2GB and GTX 770 4GB is around 50$.I say buying GTX 770 4GB is well worth in investing those extra 50$.(Kind of future proof also)

Check MSI GD 65 Gaming mother boards or even latest in those gaming series , priced around 150-190$
Make sure your PSU supports GTX 770 4GB Power ratings.Also case should be bigger for this GTX 770 Cards to fit in.

Start with 8GB Ram later you can expand.Use air cooling fan Noctua NH-U14S if you are buying expensive processor like i7 4770.
for low end processors , I dont recommend initially investing on the processor cooling fan.

Let me know if my inputs sounds relevant :)
