Hi. I am on a bit of a budget but think I cam build a PC for video editing without breaking the bank. The 'AMD FX-6100 AM3+ 3.3GHz 14MB 95W' seems very good value and is 6 core. There seem to be various bundles for around 200 pounds (I am in UK).

The Motherboards the bundles come with are Asus M5A78L-M, Asus M5A97 PRO S/L and GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3. Not sure of the relative merits but like that they all have 2 full sized card slots.

The other question is what is a good CUDA graphics card that wont bread the bank.

Regards,
Ben

Had a bit of a change of heart as AMD seem to be a but rubbish for video editing so am now looking at this:

Asus GeForce GTX 550 Ti 900MHz 1GB PCI-Express HDMI £84.99

Intel Core i5-2500K 3.30GHz LGA1155 6MB - £169.99

Gigabyte Z68P-DS3 S1155 Intel Z68 DDR3 ATX £69.99
