New Gaming, Video editing and Rendering and Programming build Tags: New Build Systems Last response: March 13, 2012 7:23 AM in Systems Share MacHooper March 12, 2012 11:21:15 PM Approximate Purchase Date: A month or two Budget Range: £1500 willing to push it to £1800 but prefer it to be lower System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Video Rendering and photo Editing, Programming, Web surfing and college work Parts Not Required:Keyboard, Mouse Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Aria.co.uk Novatech.co.uk Overclockers.co.uk Ebuyer.co.uk Country: United Kingdom Parts Preferences: Preferably a nice looking case, 24" or higher monitor Overclocking: Basic low end overclocking SLI or Crossfire: More than likely in the future Monitor Resolution: I have an old VGA 19" monitor which is why I would like a 24" or higher but not over 27" Additional Comments: I would prefer a case with a window and high airflow, Here are the components I have already picked.

Optical Drive: LiteOn Version B 24x Internal SATA DVD RW Drive [IHAS124-19] https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Components/Blu-Ray+%2F+... Right so I didn't mention a case as I am looking for input on a nice looking case preferably with a window but can live without and hight airflow. The other thing I am sceptical about is for my purposes (eg. Gaming as well as video rendering etc.) would I be better off with a intel core i7 3820 quad core ( https://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/Intel+Core+i7-3820... ) or with the AMD FX 6 Core or Eight Core Processor?
