Tags: Build Video Editing Systems Last response: June 4, 2010 2:32 PM in Systems Share sambamuel June 4, 2010 1:25:58 PM Hi all, My first post, YAY Okay, my friend needs a specific computer - He does Video Editing, CAD/CAM AND plays games. He currently has 3 seperate pc's (one for each activity) What spec PC should he build that will be capable of doing all these? It may sound like a silly question , but i'm lost, as i never build anything this high spec. Any help appreciated More about : specific build sambamuel June 4, 2010 1:27:20 PM He has no limit for spending, although he wouldn't like to spend much more than £1500 Silvune June 4, 2010 2:32:45 PM Assuming that £1500 is just for the case and what goes in it, then this is what I'd recommend: CPU: Intel I7 930 £235 http://www.ebuyer.com/product/193596 If he's going to buy an aftermarket heatsink, then get the OEM version from OCUK: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CP... £222 Mobo: Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R £161 http://www.ebuyer.com/product/195331 Has plenty of the features as it's bigger brothers, overclocks very well and is cheaper, and oft recommended. RAM: Corsair 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz XMS3 Memory Kit CL7(7-8-7-20) 1.65V £170 http://www.ebuyer.com/product/191182 GPU: XFX HD 5870 1GB DDR5 £323 http://www.ebuyer.com/product/200580 PSU: Antec Truepower New TP750 £99 http://www.ebuyer.com/product/159921 Powerful enough to crossfire two 5870s and an OC on the CPU. They have this for £2 cheaper on OCUK. HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB £55 http://www.ebuyer.com/product/173804 OS: Windows 7 64bit Home Premium OEM £80 http://www.ebuyer.com/product/173791 Standard SATA DVD Drive £15 Blu-Ray would cost about £55 Case: CoolerMaster HAF 922 £110 http://www.ebuyer.com/product/179990 Personal choice, but this is a good one. If he's going to overclock: Prolimatech Megahalems Rev B £45 http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HS... +~£15 for a fan and thermal paste. Total: £1348 Can't find your answer ? Ask !
