Hey all! I'm 99% sure this is the right area to post.. =P
I'm building my first gaming rig, and I plan on doing a lot of recording with FRAPS, and video editing.(sony vegas) I can safely say, that I will be video editing, and gaming an equal amount. A LOT
I have heard it been said that that i7's are better for editing/rendering type situations. Which is the reason for my choice below.
My main request is: Are there any better cost-effective recommendations anyone can give me, to bring my costs back down to $900-$1000. I'm open to all suggestions. Especially if you see something here that can be easily replaced with something cheaper/just-as-good...Probably wishful thinking
