Hello guys. I'm new, I'm from Italy and I'm sort of an aspiring filmmaker. Now, I have a kinda fast pc, but it's getting old, especially for what I need. I will soon be buying a new Canon EOS 600D to film some ambitious short films, and I will need a PC capable of editing 1080p smoothly. Also, I will be playing some classic football (soccer for americans) games like FIFA 11.
These are the pieces I was thinking of buying, but I really need some help with them, and will also like to know if they are compatible. My budget would be 850$.
Mobo: Gigabyte Intel H67 LGA 1155 DDR3 1333 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard (GA-H67A-UD3H-B3)
Power Supply: Diablotek DA Series 600-Watt ATX Power Supply PSDA600
CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 Processor 3.4GHz 8 MB Cache Socket LGA1155
RAM: Corsair XMS3 8 GB 1333 MHz PC3-10666 240-Pin DDR3 Memory Kit CMX8GX3M2A1333C9
Let me know what you think about it, and what I could do to make it better and perfectly fit my needs, without exaggerately spending. I dunno about the PNY graphic card though. Lots of people told me it's really great for HD editing, despite the price, but I can't play any good graphic games with it. I think my budget for a GPU would go as far as 300$.
I will be using editing programs such as Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects. My total budget is 850$, but the thing I really think I can pay more than what I have listed here are priced is the graphics card, because I'm not sure it will be ok. And also, what do you mean by "need only tower"?
Thanks for the answer. So you think the GTX 560 (or maybe the 460, 'cuz 560 costs a bit) will help me more than the Sapphire with my needs? (again, my needs are 85% Full HD Editing, 10% Playing games like FIFA, 5% usual pc uses, internet, watching movies, etc.)
Basically to use Adobe Premiere's GPU acceleration futures you have to get either a 400 dollar Quadro (I think it's the cheapest that supports it) plus with Quadro GPU you have to forgot gaming, or a GTX 570 or 580. There's 470 or 480 option too but that's a bad idea..
Wow, thank you so much. You were a great help. I'll come back in less than an year to tell you how my new pc's going. Can't wait to go in vacation to my native country, Santo Domingo, so I can buy from American sites and not spend a fortune on shipping. (I'm half Italian and live in Italy now). Maybe that will happen in December, but I won't get my hopes high. Anyway, I should have it before next July.
