CPU cooler- cm hyper 212 evo

Hard drvie- 750GB Samsung Spinpoint MT2 Hard Drive

thanks :)

  1. It will do fine for gameing but vid editing you would be better off w/ 2600k or even 3930k 2011..
  2. The cooler is good.

    Can't comment on PSU as you forgot to list it :non:

    If your video editing why not toss in 16GB RAM. RAM is cheapish right now so may as well.

    Without defining what bumping the price too much is thats hard to comment on but for an extra £35 ($50 ish) you could get a 560ti 448 edition which would bump performance.
  3. sorry the psu is a OCZ ZT Series 750 Watt 80PLUS Bronze Performance Fully Modular
  4. Thats plenty for that setup and leaves you expansion room in the future
  5. ok thank you for the help
