I would like a quiet PC when it is not at full load. I would prefer it to be very cool temperature wise unless under full load or rendering. I want it for gaming and video editing equally. I would prefer a SSD (for booting) if possible and a 1TB hard drive.
I am more concerned with the specific parts than price but I use the $1200 budget as a rough estimate (so if a combo deals offers very useful parts, keep it on the list even if the pricing is temporary)
