ok so I need help picking cpu and video card, my budget is around $750 give or take $10 so i have around 370 left for this remaining parts. This pc will be used for editing and gaming, im interested in playing games like diablo and sc2 on high while keeping above 30 fps if its not possible fine. I will be editing with sony vegas and adobe af.
Brand does not matter, what ever works best and if there is something that gives me a better bang for my buck that can replace what i have chosen please tell me
I chose the Intel Core i5 for its jump from dual to quad-cores and increase in L2 and L3 Cache, it should overclock slightly although it does not have an unlocked multiplier.
I followed Tom's advice according to Best Graphics Cards For The Money: July 2012, this video card should server your purposes without spending excess money for performance above your system's bottleneck.
In my book, Antec is a reputable company who makes top-notch stuff, this is a 400W continuous (meaning it can sustain 400W without harm). It has a single +12v rail that can supply 30A which should more than handle your CPU (TDP:95W) and GPU (TPD:85W) which the two main consumers of +12v power, it also has Active PFC, and a plethora of connectors with the exception of the power cord
