Hey guys, I was wondering if you could help me out. I am building a new gaming/ video editing PC and was wondering if you could look over it before I pull the trigger. I'm basically looking for something that will run BF3 at max specs and edit HD video smoothly. Future proof for a few years would also be nice. Here are the parts I have gathered. My budget is about $1,000 - $1,200 minus monitor.
ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM
Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
2x XFX HD-687A-ZDFC Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W ATX12V v2.31/ EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus RR-B10-212P-G1 "Heatpipe Direct Contact" Long Life Sleeve 120mm CPU Cooler Compatible Intel Core i5 & Intel Core i7
COOLER MASTER HAF 912 RC-912-KKN1 Black SECC/ ABS Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
All together that comes out to about $1,300, but rebates should take it down to around $1,200.
Does it look good? Should anything change? I'm new to all this, so I spent some time researching, but I could have made a noob mistake
One thing I wasn't sure of was the PSU - apparently for 10 bucks more I could have Crossfire? However, I don't really know what that is, but is it worth it for the 10 extra bucks? It could even be on the one I have - I'm not sure. Again - I = noob.
