I am looking into building a PC very soon, however i have not done this before, so i would appreciate it if anyone can give me any guidance on what kind of spec i should be aiming to get. Ideally i would not like to spend more than £700, but given what i want to do, it will probably cost more (im guessing around 900) - but i could wait for prices to drop or something.
Anyway, what im looking for is a PC which i can handle HD video editing mainly and maybe some light gaming (although i would like the PC to easily handle games).
Processer wise i have been considering the i7 920 and the 860, but im not sure which to go for given what i want to do.
Graphics - not sure at all here. All i know is i want at least 1GB, but no idea on what graphics card to get.
Motherboard - i want something that will be futureproff so i can add extra RAM later on or whenever i feel the need.
RAM - minimum 6GB
HD - 1 or 2 TB, doesnt matter really as i can add extra anytime.
Also, i would like a Blu Ray writer so that i can get my vidoes off my HD camcorder ( is there a Dual layer blue ray writer available? i think i may have come across one for £150?)
Other bits such as power supply etc i have no idea about.
