Hey everyone!

Approximate Purchase Date: Mid Summer 2012

Budget Range: $800-850

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Video Editing

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: amazon or newegg

Country: USA

Parts Preferences: Brand

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: N/A

Additional Comments: I make youtube (mostly minecraft) videos and record gameplay so i need a really quiet pc (my blue yeti microphone picks up everything!). Also i DON'T plan on doing any over-clocking, i want to go with intel instead of AMD, and my budget is around $800.


This is the case i was thinking of: NZXT H2 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

This is the processor i'm considering: Intel Core i5-3570K http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

All the other part are like a different language to me so i really need some advice on those. What do you guys think?

ASrock is not a bad motherboard, but if you would like to spend a litle more on a Asus motherboard.

the only thing i might say about the setup, is that if you want to you can use those 50 extra bucks, and put a 750 or 650 watts psu.
