I will not be getting the Creative Sound Card because the onboard sound card is sufficient

Im going to be using this PC for video editing and high end gaming (such as Battlefield 3 coming in november).

My budget is around €2000/£1900 (But if it is a bit more than that, no problem)

So I should stay with 8gb of RAM (and upgrade in the future) and buy an SSD. Do you recommend any SSD?


The sites I prefer are
Amazon.co.uk
Play.com
Overclockers.co.uk

I will still buy a normal hard drive for storage.
I will probably install Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit together with the programs I use the most on the SSD.
On the 2tb hard disk I will put all the other stuff

Do you think the MSI GTX 580 Lightning Edition can support dual screens?

It's a 3GB card. If that card can't handle it, then no card can.

@ the OP

Get the Z68 for SSD caching. Also this psu down below suites two of those cards better. It's more than enough.
