Hello, I'm trying to build my first system ever and would like to do some HD video editing with it. Components that I'm considering are:
Intel i7-950 CPU
Asus Sabertooth X58 motherboard
Asus ENGTX 460 GPU
Patriot Gamer Series 12GB(3x4GB)RAM
OCZ Onyx OCZSSD2-32GB SATA II for Operating System (Windows 7 home-premium
Seagate Barracuda ST31500341AS 1.5TB/7200rpm
LG Black 10X Blue-ray Burner WH10LS30
LG DVD Burner GH24NS50
Antec TruePower TP-650
Are these parts compatible? Am I missing something? Is it possible to have a BluRay burner and a BluRay reader/DVD writer on the same system?
Thanks for your input!
Yes, the drives should work fine. You will be able to do video editing and anything else you like with this system.
I suggest you may be engaging in a bit of overkill, but it will certainly be powerful enough.
I would look at the i7 930 as it is plenty fast for your needs. Why 12 gigs of gamer memory for video editing?
Thanks buzznut. I went with the 950 because the price difference at newegg was negligible. I've updated the parts list:
Approximate purchase date: This week
Budget range: 1,300-1500
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Productivity, HD video editing, Internet surfing, gaming (MS Flightsim), I'm a big multitasker.
Parts not required: Mouse, keyboard, monitor, speakers, OS, Case
Preferred website for parts: newegg.com
Country of Origin: (mine) Guatemala
Parts preference: Intel chip, rest no preference.
SLI or Crossfire: Do I need it?
