Hi,
lot of people got confused in my last thread due to currency, hence starting this thread again.

I want to use PC primary for vedio editing and playing 1080p HD moveis, gaming is secondary.

here are list of component I need:

1. Motherboard:--one which is future ready, I can upgrade system for upto 2-3 times performance, with usb 3.0,Sata 6gb/s support
2. Processor:-- A good one to last for my current needs for next few years
3. PSU:--to power 1 DVD writer, 1 DVD combo, upto 2 internal HDD, 1 portable USB HDD and 3 USB peripheral devices
4. HDD:- 1TB Esata
5. RAM:- Optimum for current system, I can add extra later on


I already have 22" samsung monitor, DVD writer, 2 PATA hdd(40 and 160gb), 1 USB HDD(300GB), 2.1 speakers

I want to build a system a which is future ready and such that I can start with optimum system and upgrade to add up to a very powerful system.

I am in a dilemma over AMD phenom II X 6 based and Intel I-5 based system, as to which will be best to start so do also let me know why I should choose one from another.

You plan to upgrade a few times along the way. If you were to go Intel, you will likely have to purchase a new motherboard for each new generation. AMD, on the other hand, makes upgrading easily because most of the CPU works with its older motherboard. The mobo has usb 3.0, sata 6Gb/s, and is AM3+ meaning it willl work with future AMD CPU and backward compatible with AM3.

wintermint and Manu, thanks so much for your advise, it is so close.

However, here is another question:
Does a 430 W PSU good enough to support such a build? because I also have a VIP 400 PSU from my old sys.

I don't require optical drive, I already have, so is it worth purchase AMD phenom II X 6 over X4

you have a non branded psu, i would definately tell you to upgrade that, and if you are just gaming, x4 is the way to go because x6 performs slower than the x4 in terms of gaming.ITS just good for multitasking.
a 430w would be just enough.

So that means X6 is not value for money, right?

I am mostly planning for video editing, watching 1080p movies and transcoding. I might consider gaming 1 to 1.5 years ahead once my Kid is 5-6 years old.
