Like i said I need to edit these items to fit the $800/$900 Budget so tell me what i can replace. I will use it mainly for Gaming/Video editing and some Photoshop/3D motion graphics. This is my first build so i just want to get it right (and have it turn on,lol)

More about first build please read
  1. 1rst GPU link does not work for me...

    6950 is respectable midrange card....two in Crossfire are darn nice for gaming if your res is 1080P or above!

    might be able to save a $100-$150 or more on a socket 1156/i7 combo over the 1366/i7, but the one you've chosen is quite solid
  2. The 170$ Sapphire 6850 looks good
  3. You should post the name and price of the item in addition to just link. See form in sticky, link in my sig.

    You'll get more people to respond this way, we REALLY hate posts with just a buncha links.

    1. Swap HD to an F3.
    500gb for $55

    4. PSU, Rosewill is a big no no for PSU.

    Best buy would be a XFX 750 $110 after MIR
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207003&Tpk=xfx%20750
  4. I would spend a little more money and get the XFX Radeon 6850 for the simple fact that XFX has great customer service and the warranty is a lifetime warranty.
