I'm wanting to build a computer for searching the web(alot of youtube, facebook, ect) basic video editing and watching movies... Just looked around for a few hours on newegg and these fourms and this is what i came up with. Ill probably end up getting 4 more gb of ram and a graphics card for blackfriday/christmas. My budget atm is around 400 dollars so im open to suggestions on what i should change but cant really get anymore expensive. I already have all components (keyboard, mouse, speakers, os, monitor, ect)

  1. Looks good to go to me you could safe a little on the PSU though since a 450 watt unit would run that fine with spare power. This would be my choice based on today's prices at Newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341022
  2. Thanks
    would this ram work better or is it even compatible with my motherboard?

    Its got great reviews which im sure all of you know but i just dont know if it works with my mothboard
  3. It will work with your motherboard, it will only run at a slower speed than the 1600 unless you overclock.
  4. Actually is gaming on the table? Also what app/software for video editing? Vegas, Premiere, etc?
  5. probably wont game on it. And i would use Sony Vegas Pro 9 and might try to get adobe after effects.
  6. Hmm Vegas is strictly CPU bound so i would squeeze as much CPU power in that $400 as humanly possible :P

    $374AR
  7. I like the processor us suggested just didnt like the mob that came in the combo deal...

    ok lets say i waited a little bit... im 16 and have 2 job interviews this upcoming week so if i get one i should be able to expand my price range. So could someone give me a couple different builds at like $450 and then at $600. Thanks

    It will run at 1600MHz; he just has to manually set it in the BIOS.
  9. I have the ASUS M4A785-M (the older version of the mobo you picked; uses DDR2 RAM).
    The integrated video would probably be enough to use a few video programs/games, so you could buy the computer and use it until you can get the money to put in a dedicated GPU. Even then, you could get some cheaper ATI cards (high 4000s, low 5000s) for $30-50 on Newegg.
