I'm pretty new to building computers, so I thought I would ask you guys for some help on building me a computer? I'm all set and ready to build my computer, and I want your guys help on the parts I should buy.


Approximate Purchase Date: e.g.: this week

Budget Range: $2500 after rebates/tax

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, video editing are the main reasons

Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: Everything

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Anywhere in the US

Location: Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Parts Preferences: No AMD

Overclocking: Yes, extreme overclocking on the CPU

SLI or Crossfire: if necessary

Your Monitor Resolution: 2560x1440

Additional Comments: Im going to be doing heavy video editing, so I need a lot of storage space to hold videos/effects/music and stuff. I'm also going to be gaming at 1440p, so I need a computer that can run Battlefield, DayZ, and basically any game @ Max settings.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Need a new computer.

ok, do you need floating point performance? Because Ill just put a titan black in that build if you do, but if you don't then a gtx 780 ti will do.

It doesn't need to be the apex of performance, I just want something that can accomplish the things I said above.

AMD Radeons build is the build to get then. I personally was actually going to choose more than half of those parts (in AMD Radeons build) in my build for you.
