Additional Comments: Needs to have wi-fi. Will be running this software suite.

Right now, i have a 2011 macbook pro. It's great for what it does, but 3d compositing and serious gaming is bad. Plus, there are few good screen recorders that are free for mac (for gaming tuto.) I'll still use it, but as a second computer.

Here is my build:

Mobo: MSI H67MA-E45 (for firewire)

CPU: Intel i7 2600

SSD: Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR60GB 2.5" 60GB SATA III Asynchronous MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

GPU: SAPPHIRE 100314-3L Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

case: Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

RAM: G.SKILL Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model F3-10600CL9D-8GBNT (only 1333 8gb ram)

HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

PSU: CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Give me your opinion on this build, how to improve it without dramatically rising the cost and if you have any previous builds that can do the same with for an equal/cheaper price. Thanks!

I didn't ask for ads, I just want an honest opinion about the build, like I said in the original post.

You want a Z68 board for video editing. Also that psu is manufactured by CWT for Corsair and it's a dog.
