Hello, this is gonna be my first build.

My budget: I would like to spend 1000 On the computer itself, and then the remaining on a good monitor. So, about 1200-1300 ?

I dont know about the part prices, are they going up? down? I need this computer fast, so if anyone can help, please do so! Ill appreciate it alot !

What I am going to do:
Gaming
Video Editing
Graphic Design/Photoshop Work
Watch HD Movies

From the most important to the least: Graphic Design/Photoshop Work > Video Editing > Gaming > Watch HD Movies

I prefer Intel. I have no idea on what parts to choose, so can someone make a good build for this money and for those specifications and we can start from there?

I'll answer any questions so that you can get enough info for the build.

Thanks!

something like this might appeal to you:

CPU & MoBo Combo
HDD & PSU Combo
RAM
GPU
Optical
CPU Cooler
Chasis or another of your choosing.

I put this together with a combination of budget, power and looks in mind. It sounds like you want something that works and looks cool too.

This will leave you with 300 or so to play with for a monitor.

p.s if you pay shipping I'll build it for you :p

I was thinking of i7 since gaming isnt the most important, and also thinking on 6 GB. Is it possible to do a 1000-1100 rig with these ?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite... - i7 combo with the same motherbord but still 4 gb ram


or substitute one of the following combos for your mobo, cpu and ram to give you 6gb ram on the 1366 platform (only real difference is the ram)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

the total with one of these before tax, shipping and mail-in rebates would be 1K and change.

Nope, that's the whole computer, minus an operating system, keyboard, mouse and monitor. (I'm assuming you already have those) (cpu, motherboard, memory, gpu, psu, hdd, optical, case and heatsink)
That is an ATI graphics card, it's just built by xfx. What this means is that the "meat and potatoes", so to speak, of the card are manufactured/developed by ati, but the card is built and sold through xfx (or another company such as sapphire who put on different coolers or do some minor tweaking).

Crossfire-x is when you use 2 video cards. What this does is it means that you have 2 cards doing the work of one. The advantage to this is that you get more power, not double, but more (depending on the card). The disadvantage is that it can get cramped inside your case and get pretty hot. At your budget range which the components you're looking for, crossfire won't fit.

Okey, So:

OCZ Fatal1ty OCZ550FTY 550W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V SLI Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Intel Core i7-930 Bloomfield 2.8GHz LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80601930

Could there be any, improvements at all? For a little more money here and there could I make a big difference? Will this do great, for the work I'll be doing? And, I still need a Monitor. A friend told me that there is one 22' or 24' LCD Samsung Monitor, which is the one with the fastest response... ? :S

Did a quick look through again and found you could swap a couple of things:

LG 22X DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model GH22LS50 LightScribe Support - OEM Item #: N82E16827136168

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive Item #: N82E16822152185

OCZ Reaper 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model OCZ3RPR1600C6LV6GK Item #: N82E16820227575

COOLER MASTER HAF 912 RC-912-KKN1 Black SECC/ ABS Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case Item #: N82E16811119233

Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield 3.06GHz LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor BX80601950 Item #: N82E16819115211

ASUS Sabertooth X58 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard Item #: N82E16813131665

using the following combos:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
and the rest purchased separately:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

This would give you a slightly faster CPU, larger PSU, better GPU all for almost the same price.

As for your monitor question, the size of the screen is not related to it's response. Most monitors run at 5ms, but you can get as low as 2ms. It all depends on how much you're willing to spend. Typically a larger monitor costs more than a smaller one, and a monitor with a lower response time will cost more than one with a higher one. I personally like the Samsung BX2350 (23", 2ms, 1080p). Price would depend where you shop, should be between 2-300.

this would be just under 1100. unfortunately newegg only ships to the US (.com) or canada (.com). you'll have to find another retailer to ship there. i don't know of any off-hand, sorry.
