About to order parts.

I'm about to order the parts to my computer. I'll be going with:

CPU - i5 2400 (I'm not overclocking)
GPU - Sapphire HD 6870
SSD - Crucial M4 128GB
Case - Rosewill Challenger
PSU - Corsair CX600
RAM - G.Skill Value Series 8GB
Mobo - P8Z68-V LX


How does that look for a video editing and gaming PC?

  1. looks good - here's what i'd recommend to change..

    motherboard:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128512
    - GIGABYTE GA-Z68XP-UD3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0: $140

    or this one:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128498
    - GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0: $150

    they're both GEN3 boards, and also have the front USB3.0 connector (unlike the P8Z68-V LX)

    case:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129180
    - Antec Three Hundred Two Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded 2 x USB 3.0: $70

    better build quality than Rosewill

    PSU - your choice is good, but you could also no prob go down to 550w if you wanted.. and this one is modular too:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371016
    - Antec BP550 Plus 550W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Modular: $65
  2. I would keep everything you have. Wouldnt change a thing.
