With the release of Z68 mobo this week, I have finalized all my options for a new build from scratch.
I will mostly use this for video encoding and editing, file compression (Winrar), file encryption (truecrypt), HTPC, multi-tasking and some moderate gaming. I will also be using an SSD but I won't be taking advantage of the SSD caching feature. Instead, I will be using the SSD as a primary hard drive and use a HDD as a storage drive. Lastly, I will also be overclocking the CPU.
Please provide some feedback as I am a first time builder.
I am undecided about the PSU and the hard drive. Also please comment on my choice of RAM. This is my first build so I only really focused on what would be compatible. If you think there is some way to improve this let me know.
The pre-tax total comes to ~$1830.79. I've price matched to the best of my ability with all the Canadian sites I know.
