GPU- XFX HD-575X-ZNFC Radeon HD 5750 1GB 128-bit GDDR5
PSU- Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W
HDD- I heard good things about the Samsung Spinpoint (any suggustions on which one?)
RAM- G.Skill Ripjaw 6gb
CASE- ANTEC 300
I couldnt find the motherboard i wanted to so i changed to this one. Any input?. And i read that i will need at least 500mb hdd for video editing. Also read alot of good things about samsung spinpoint. Which one would work best for video editing and sound recording/ editing? this is my first build and could use all the help i can get.
I might do abit of gaming but the pc will mostly be used for sound recording and editing. I also have a few videos on my video camera i want to upload and edit. Nothing to crazy. my budget is around $1500 but i wouldnt mind spending a little less. I notice newegg has alot better prices then the canadian websites. Wish newegg shipped to Canada. Im not exactly sure but i think the monitor is only about 18"
I think i'm going to go with Windows 7
Not sure which G.Skill Ripjaw to be honest. Any advice would be much appreciated. Like i said this is my first build and not exactly sure what to buy.
Also i read that i will need at least a 500gb hard drive to do video editing. So i guess the 1tb these hard drives have should be plenty?
Seem to be having a hard time finding this exact GPU. Is there another one somone might suggest for video/sound editing. Dont think it has to be anything crazy since i dont do alot of gaming.
As usual, Proximon has a very nice system put together for you. Here's a combo deal for your CPU and an upgraded version of the motherboard suggested above. I think the upgraded board is worth the extra $22.
I put together nearly an identical system over the weekend and it's an awesome machine. I used the CPU + motherboard combo I linked to and 8GB of G.Skill Ripjaws RAM since my customer is using this build for CAD and Photo/Video editing. You will be very happy with the build Proximon put together.
Thanks guys I really appreciate all your help. I will go for the combo for sure. I'm not sure if I will need it but I was thinking about getting 6 - 8gb of ram but I guess I could always get more Down the road if needed. Now I just have to find out if it's worth while ordering from USA cause of shipping and taxes.
Yes, quite adequate for a 5750. It's quite a power sipper actually. Something like 75W at full load.
You might want to get a higher efficiency unit, to save money on the electrical bill... also there's just the question of future upgrades and the possibility you would want a stronger gaming card in the future.
