so after way to long procrastinating and then family drama looks like im finally ready to pull the trigger on this

so this is what my build is looking like will use it for basic video encoding,photo editing ive come to the conclusion i dont feel i need a separate video card with the intel hd3000 for my use...if i need one down the line i will add it

keep in mind this is my first build so any advice is always welcomed

Build looks great! But do you really need a 750w PSU? If your just using integrated graphics, then that's wayyyy overkill. Save some money and get around a 550w PSU. Also, what video editing programs are you using? Some programs can utilize CUDA cores found in nvidia video cards for rendering. Really good build otherwise :)

for basic video encoding,photo editing this seems like overkill

Are you planning to Overclock? .because you wont really need the arctic silver 5 or
aftermarket cooler.

However, this seems like a really nice build to have for gaming if you were to add a mean VGA. : )

yeah i might be lowering the psu i think i picked that one out when i had a high end video card going in

not sure what programs i will be using yet

yes i got the cooler i did cause i figure i might overclock down the line and its not really expensive so i figure i would get it now and set it up now so whenever i want to overclock i can

when it comes to the cpu i chose i figure i want this pc to last me a good while and i would like to learn more advanced programs for editing so since i can afford it right now i figure might as well go for one of the better cpus plus can utilize hd3000 graphics with the 2600k

i do think i will wind up adding a video card to it eventually but really want to see how the hd3000 works and what if any limitations it gives to me
