  2. Siggy 600$ build, just get the i5 2400 instead and you should be set. That'll put you at 650$, then add OS to equal $750. It'll play your games and do your editing all in one.
  3. What is "the kill switch thing on sandy bridge?"

    I wouldn't get it, raidmax is not known for good psus. I got $10 more than that combo but have 8gb ram instead of 4 and good quality parts. You will need a graphics card for p67 and the one I'd suggest is currently out of stock. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102932&cm_re=5850-_-14-102-932-_-Product

    This SB is less but you won't be able to overclock but can use the integrated gpu which won't be able to handle bfbc2.
