System Usage from Most to Least Important: Photo/video editing, creating flash, surfing web
Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS, have 550w power supply but can get new one if req
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg, tiger direct, microcenter, frys
Parts Preferences: No Pref
Overclocking: prefer not to. I have heard it reduces the life of the pc.
SLI or Crossfire: Yes / No / Maybe
Additional Comments: Not a huge gamer, but i am assuming i will need similar setups because of what i require. I am running a multiple monitor system (2 but prefer to bump it up to 3) and many times need to be running multiple applications at once.
Getting parts from newegg or tiger would be good because i dont really have the grand to spend now but my other pc is on its last leg so in need to get a new one. Its kind of my life blood right now and haw i make money, but i can come up with cash if i cannot finance it.
I am merely a college student trying to survive right now so cheaper is better but i understand that i need to spend money to make money.
Sum is 765$. It can go lower by getting the less powerful 6 Core 1055T, leave the heatsink and get a more value GPU (~ 700 dollars) but that's the overall idea. 550W are enough for either systems but I would like to link us the model of your PSU
*** At this point, I can't recommend an internal hard drive as the prices are still pretty high... however, this SSD should be enough to run your OS and some of your main editing software. If you should feel the need to purchase a hard drive at this time, I'd recommend going with something at least 1TB and higher (due to big files).
All of the above (including tax for the cpu/mobo at MC) will run you around $703.90. This is without a doubt, a SOLID performing PC for your photo/video editing, creating flashes; as well as gaming (if you should ever feel the need to).
