System Usage from Most to Least Important: Editing (PhotoShop, Cinema 4D, Sony Vegas Ect.)
Light Gaming (Minecraft) and plenty of Surfing
Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse and Case (Using a Thermaltake Soprano Computer Tower Case w/o PSU)
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: www.msy.com.au, Pretty much anywhere in Australia.
Parts Preferences: Atleast 8 GB of RAM and atleast 1 TB of sotrage.
SLI or Crossfire: N/A (I Don't Know What That Is, Sorry)
Monitor Resolution: Unknown but will hopefully be running dual screen.
Additional Comments: So my beloved laptop has just died and I thought to my self what better time than to build my own PC. I will be using it for basic editing of videos and pictures with programs such as PhotoShop, cinema 4D and Sony Vegas Pro. I will also want to run Minecraft and a screen recorder (Either Fraps, Bandicam or Camtasia) The only problem is I have never built a PC before and I am on a budget of around $600. If you could give me some ideas on what I need and don't need as well as where I can get it from it would be much appreciated, I would also like to know some recommendations on parts and what will and won't work with each other. Needs to be fast and able to run without too much lag. Must be able to run Minecraft on full settings no lag with the screen recorder on and to be able to edit quickly.
Thanks in advance,
P.S: I live in Melbourne, Australia but I can use online stores.
That unfortunately comes to $585, so out of money right there. This build assumes you have the OS already (if not another $100). No graphics card on it, but the integrated graphics should be able to run Minecraft fine. The PSU is of sufficient wattage if you wanted to add one later.
Make sure to check out other stores to see if they have the same components cheaper, Umart I know has the RAM a couple of bucks cheaper and MSY has the HDD a bit less. All those websites have Melbourne pickup locations, so no shipping cost needed.
