I am looking for assistance with a system build that can be used for hosting video editing, gaming, hosting virtual machines. I am looking at a $ 2500 budget.
I have not built a pc in the last 10 years
Things i am sure i need in the build

1.32 gig of memory
2. i7 processor
3. 120 gig sold state drive for os.
4. 200 plus gig solid state drive for apps
5. 2 tb drive or higher for media/storage etc.
6. 1.Radeon R9 290 video card.
7. Board that will allow crossfire of r9 card when i buy a second one i a few months.
8. Appropriate type of cooling for the spec
9. Case that is easy to do an build on.
10. Power supply good enough for expansion later.

    Here it is.

    I highly recommend updating the BIOS on that motherboard quickly so you won't have any issues with the Ivy Bridge E CPU.

    EDIT: Just changed a mobo in the build so click the new url to see the changes.

    Looks good expect the part where he wants to crossfire later. 750w isn't going to xfire 290's.
    Here's a good 850w XFX thats actually $5 less than the 750w corsair.

    Another good but more expensive option is the 1000W Evga G2

    Going through the lists now.
    Thank you
  6. Wow i see a lot of mistakes i made already.
    I see Windows 8.1 pro is the way to go.
    The processor i picked was only quad core not 6 core.
    What is the difference between going for a Mid or Full Tower case.
    What is the difference in the R90 video cards. I see different options and prices.
    1000w ps will be a safe bet for future upgrades.
