New system advice please


Below is a list of parts I am thinking of getting.

The system will be used for Sony Vegas 9 platinum pro for editing AVCHD at 1920x1080i and for playing Microsoft flight sim now and again, oh and a bit of music creation.
I will be overclocking to around 3.8Ghz with Turbo off.

So could anyone give me any pointers please?...........................................
These parts will cost £1360 including VAT and delivery, I will do a bit more looking around for cheaper prices but the delivery charges will have to be offset against any savings.

More about system advice please
  1. FSX is DirectX 10. The game is more cpu-intensive than gpu. If you don't plan to get the next one, you can go with a DX10 card like the HD 4860/4870/4890 to save a bit of money.

    Swap the mobo out for ASUS P7P55D-E Pro which supports USB 3 & SATA 3.

    The rest are good.
  2. Thanks for your reply.

    I was looking at that mobo actually but was unsure, I will do a bit more looking at that.
