$1k build for video editing

It's me again for the people who have helped me in the past! I am back and have waited even longer and have finally come up with a good solution for everything! I have an xbox 360 and play halo 3 and various other fps on it. I have come to the realization that I do not need to spend all this money on a pc for gaming when I can game on the 360 and have just as much if not more fun! So that brings me to why I have started this topic!

What kind of system should I build if I want to capture gameplays and video from my 360 to edit and do work related to that? My budget is still the same at around $1k and maybe a little higher if necessary.

I think the thing that has me the most confused is the graphics card to go with or what i need to capture the gameplays and all! I do not need a monitor, already have a 24" and a 17".

I am thinking I definitely need a quad core...maybe a 9550. I already know that I want the Antec p182 case. I am confused on everything else though such as what size HDD's to get and if I should get more then one and of course how to accomplish what I want to do! Any help would be greatly appreciated and again the budget is around $1k and I do not need a monitor! Thanks

    So totals to around $1034 before rebates...And even u can game on it without problems...
  2. If you won't game on it go for a cheaper gpu like a 4650
  3. Hmm, that would be pretty sweet to go i7 but do I really need to? And I might be doing some gaming but probably nothing hardcore at all. But still I am confused on how to capture my halo 3 gameplay from my 360 rite to my pc. Don't I need a capture card? I was hoping to plug my 360 rite into my pc so I record it straight to the harddrive or something like that.
  4. Also what are my options for like a tv tuner if i could have that and a capture card all in one that would be amazing!!! I want a really nice HD quality one that will keep my gameplays HD. I have no experience with any of this! haha sorry and thanks
  5. You don't NEED an i7, but you might as well get it if you can afford it. A dual core system can do video editing too, it just takes for ever. The 8 processing threads in the i7 will be the best option for faster processing.

    I don't know about the capture card or anything of that nature.
  6. Yea I have no idea about all of this either. I am going to research it some more and post back here if I find anything or not! I am thinking of spending like $750 on everything not including the GPU/CC or w.e it is I need to do all this. I am not going to make you guys have to build me a pc for $750 on here because I have learned from the past and xthe kidx you are awesome! you help out everyone so i will save you some time and post back later!!! Thanks

    :lol: U are correct... :D
  10. And just a start point for ur $750 system...look into the new Phenom II X3 720...heard they are very gud...instead of a dual core y nt a tri core, which will certainly help in video editing...

    :D sure xthekid will agree wit this hopefully :P
