What's up guys, I'm getting rid of my Mac to go PC...

and just really needed a little guidance. I'm trying to build my first Video editing/gaming P.C, mainly for Music Video Editing (With Adobe Premier Pro), and secondly to play World Of Warcraft....Shall we continue,


Approximate Purchase Date: Now-August 1st, 2012

Budget Range: $600

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Music Video Editing, Photoshop Editing, Gaming, Web browsing, Watching Torrented Movies, Streaming Music & Porn Streaming (Just Being Honest)

Parts already owned: Coolermaster 430 Black Elite Case, & A AMD XFX Radeon 6770 GPU (the one with the dual dvi ports, and hdmi port)

Are your buying a monitor: Not for now, Later on down the line (mid-late August)


Do you need to buy OS: Yes


Preferred Website(s) for Parts:Newegg seeing as they deliver fast, & Microcenter, but any website will do. I do not care if they are all different sites, just the cheapest, & most reputable .


Location: New York City, United States


Overclocking:Ehhh Maybe, but probably not!

SLI or Crossfire:No

Your Monitor Resolution:Gonna upgrade to a 19''-23'' samsung lcd, but as for now, I'm using a old 15'' Sony display (vga output)

Additional Comments: I Prefer Intel cpus over AMD (unless proven otherwise) as i know they are way better for video editing, Also considering getting a ssd (solid state drive) for the boot drive (120gb) , if I can fit it into my budget, & will eventually upgrade GPU aswell within 3-7 months to a better one (if need be)!

Thanks Guys!

Thats more like a $6000 computer.

Well, since you are working on a budget, simply go to newegg and make selections based on price.

OS: $100
videocard $150
RAM: $50
Mobo: $100
SSD: $200

And like I said if he has the parts described, he can just remove them from my build and he is well under budget.
