I need it for gaming (Battlefield, Crysis 2,etc. Also for heavy 1080p editing with Sony Vegas. So there's going to be a lot of multitasking. I need something that's quite and it doesn't overheat. Can you guys give me tips on how to make an ideal PC? Thanks :D .

Whats the budget? whats the price on this build?
April 18, 2012 1:03:25 PM

my guess is your around $1500 for this build, as it is close to what I purchased 2 months ago from them.
Several things to consider....1000watts is higher than I think you need for this PC with a single 7970 video card...you might be able to get away with slightly smaller.

Also consider a larger SSD drive....I went 120gb and love running things off it that I wish I had gone even larger. 60gb is going to be Windows and a few extras. When you review your build, if you are able to save in other areas....I would take that money and stick it here.
I didn't get the +29 sound dampening option, but I did go with Max fan cooling and my PC is not loud at all....so with default fans I think you can save that money.

I went with 240mm liquid cooling and it is more than enough, I guess 120mm might be also....so the 360mm is extra money you probably won't see a return on. I did go with the 30% OC like you
