first off, you will be my very best friend if you actually read and reply to this. i thank you in advance!
so this is my first computer that i'm trying to build on my own. i'm using a website called directron to try to get all the stuff to build it, but i'm sure i screwed up something along the way. so before i go and blow about 800 dollars, tell me what i did wrong lol.
i'm trying to use this computer primarily for video editing. i am going to be running avid media composer, adobe after effects, and cinema 4d studio on this puppy.
aight people. here's what i got so far.
(idk exactly what order or how to go about telling u the parts, so i think i'm just gonna copy and paste these abnormally long titles for all the parts q
Two 8GB 2x4GB DDR3 1333 Patriot PGV38G1333ELK
GeForce 8400GS 512MB PCI-E ASUS EN8400GS SILENT/DI/512MD2
One 1TB SATA 3.5in OEM Seagate ST31000528AS
(i am probably going to buy an external hardrive in addition to this)
Black CoolMax 750W ATX PSU CUL-750B
Black Ark Technology PN03 mATX Computer Case, 2x 5.25in Bays, w/ 80mm Fan
i do have a couple of questions.
1) lol is everything on this computer actually work together? it would seriously suck to order something to have it not work lol.
2) am i good on wattage (lol and is that the proper term)? i read in multiple places on this forum that you want your power to be running at like 50% ideally or something like that. i know avid and cinema are crazy about that hyperthreading mumbo jumbo, but that should still be good...right?
3) FANS! do i need more of them? i assume that one 80mm fan won't really do me the trick, but then again I know nothing about this stuff.
4) what is your favorite color?!?
thank you SO MUCH if you actually made it this far. all answers are welcome and appreciated (:
idk if amd works with cinema 4d though. it specifically says to run intel and i didn't wanna take the chance. wouldn't a 955 be a "downgrade" anyways? wouldn't i just go for the phenom 1100 or whatever instead? lol sorry for all the questions but that would require me to change the motherboard too, right?
