Computer under 1000$ for general purpose: Video edition, gaming, etc.

-First of all, thanks for your time. A lot of people ask always the same and I understand it may become boring, but I'd really apreciate your time and your help.

-About me: This is my first computer build but I've been gathering information for a long long time (years) and I've also helped some friends building their own system.

-Some Info:
Approximate Purchase Date: Next month (when I finish exams)
Budget Range: 800-1000
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Video edition, gaming internet, workstation, etc. (Note: I'd like it to be a very good system for as long as possible)
Parts Not Required: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS
Parts Preferences: None
Overclocking: Maybe
SLI or Crossfire: No
Monitor Resolution: 1680x1050 - 1920x1080

-Important info: I live in Spain and I DON'T want to buy anything online. Therefore, I've chosen a computer parts' chain store "App informática" to buy them (they're the closer I can get to internet prices)

-As now, this is what I have decided, but I'm open to advice, recommendations or problems I may have,(and feel free to comment about your impressions)

-Consider Euros +/- equivalent to dollars
-The page is if you want to browse through it, choose one of the left side sections (eg "procesadores", which would mean processors), and when you're prompted to choose the place you live in, enter: provincia: Valencia, población: Torrent
-If anyone wants to suggest any other part, feel free
-Once again, thanks in advance :)

  1. C'mon guys, 40+ views and no answer yet. :cry:
    Just post your opinion, something like: "I like it" or "I don't like it because... " or "you'd better use this instead of that", etc.
    That's enough for me. ;)
  2. hi.

    Not a fan of the 6850 because for a little more money, you can get a HD 6870. Heres is a comparision between the 2 cards.

    Not sure how good aercool strike power supplies are but some good reputable reliable brands are corsair, antec, seasonic.
  3. Where I buy them, 6870 costs around 28€ euros more, which isn't that much (at least in comparison with the ultra expensive processor). However, in 1080p I shouldn't notice the difference. In fact, I was even wondering to go a step behind instead... Anyway, I'll consider your advice :)
  4. oh i see. here in the US, the 6870 is only $10-$20 more. Didnt know it was that much more expensive where youre from :P
