Which of these processors is better for gaming and video editing. I would normally go with the 2100, but the $100 range motherboards for the 2100 are all h61, and h77 with only one PCI-E x16 slot and very basic features.
*still can't get over the pointlessness of the guy on the Intel payroll telling people that Intel is what they should buy* But yea, with discrete graphics, no question, get the i3. AMD's Llano is ideal for low power, non gaming systems that don't utilize discrete graphics.
What HDD capacity do you want? SSD included or not, and if so, what capacity?
Type of motherboard (lots of bells and whistles or minimal)?

RAM, 4GB should do it, and save $20
The monitor resolution will be 1080p.
The motherboard should be ivy bridge compatible, everything else doesn't matter.
I could run it with a single 60GB SSD, no hard drive, I'll install software to an external drive.
Or on a 160 GB hard drive, but I don't think that by buying such a hard drive I would save money to be invested in something else, if I could get a hard drive for $40, cheaper than the SSD, then I would go for that.
