Hey guys Im getting ready to build my own desktop and was wondering if I could get some help with a few things. Ill try and give you the low down without rambling on for too long but if I forget anything important just ask. What im trying to do is set up a video/photo editing workstation. I do a lot of work with HD video and huge picture files and I am currently looking into learning 3d effects.
Im planning on setting up my build around the Intel I7 2600K. From there im thinking ill go with the Z68 chip-set since I plan on overclocking it and keeping it up to date as time passes. Ive done a bit of research into the motherboards and was thinking about picking up the P8Z68 DELUXE/GEN3 from Asus.
Now this is where it gets to be a bit tricky for me beacuse im fairly new to bulig PCs. I know that a fair bit of ram is needed so that ill be able to multi task and edit very quickly so i was thinking around 16gig but i dont know what brand to buy. I am also clueless as to what graphics cards i should get and what the benefits will be, but thats where you guys come in. hopefuly ill be able to get some tips to shoot me in the right direction.
