I am going to build a custom computer for the first time and I plan on building it from the ground up. I have around $1,000 to spend.
I will be a film student and will be using the computer for video editing. I need something that can run big programs like after effects smoothly.
I am an average gamer: starcraft 2, LOL, etc. It doesn't need to be mind blowing but I would like it to be acceptable.
Any and all of your advice would be very appreciated.
For CPU,I suggest AMD if you're mainly gonna do video editing and not much heavy intensive gaming,CPU I would suggest is the AMD FX-8120 and for gpu,it's up to you but for someone like you,I say the Radeon HD 7750 will do perfectly good for you since it's only 100$ and still does a great job at playing now a days intensive games like Far Cry 3 and Battlefield 3 at Medium to High settings and the rest is up to you
