Rendering/ slight gaming pc

Approximate Purchase Date: 1-3 months

Budget Range: $700 - $1100

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Rendering> Editing> Gaming

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: All things from newegg would be great, but if you have to, Amazon.com would work as well :)

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: Asus, Razer, Intel, and NVIDIA (NVIDIA for GPU, if you could find a better, more reasonably priced one, that'd be rad.)

Overclocking: Not sure what this is, if you could tell me what it is/how to do it/if I need it that'd be cool.

SLI or Crossfire: Same as overclocking.

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: Rendering with Sony Vegas 10. Games I'd play would be Minecraft (Max settings) LoL (High - max) and the FPS Nexon makes (high - max settings, I'v completely forgot the name of it :p) Windows OS would be appreciated, and good enough to run fraps and record while maintaining a steady 30-45 fps. I'm also 15, with no experience of computer building, nor do I have family with experience, but I do have friends who have built PC's before. And if you think I need it, a small sized SSD (maybe 30 gb's, enough to put Sony Vegas and my OS on.) Thanks a lot! :)

  1. It's always best to start these threads about a week or less before you plan to purchase. Prices fluctuate and tech always changes. With that said you will want an Ivy Bridge cpu for what you plan and when you plan on purchasing.

    Intel Ivy Bridge cpu's are due out April 29th. I didn't throw a vid card in this build seeing how the new Nvidia Keplar cards are going to slowly trickle in.
