Hi, I'm new to building PCs and I would like to build my first system, that is able to play most games at high levels. My friend said I could build a decent pc for around $500, so I figured I could go alittle high then that to get a good/great pc. I want a good amount of ram, I plan on doing video editing and playing games. Keep in mind this is for CASUAL video editing, no major movies/projects just for gaming montages.
Also please suggest 3-4 good towers for me so I can pick one, I'm not sure what are good, and what are bad, I would like a good "cooling" tower, but it doesn't have to be anything extra as long as my pc won't overheat.
I am buying this build today or tomorrow so please help me ASAP.
Approximate Purchase Date: Sometime in August
Budget Range: $600-750 // Before rebates
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, Video editing, browsing, college coding classes.
Are you buying a monitor: No
Do you need to buy OS: Yes, Windows 7 or 8.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: newegg
Location: Bay Shore, NY.
Parts Preferences: Whatevers best.
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe
Your Monitor Resolution: 32" Inch tv, not sure of resolution
Additional Comments: I need a great cooling system.
Why Are You Upgrading: My laptop has good specs but constantly overheats causing games to slow down in frame rate, I need a PC who can handle games better and not have overheating problems and slow frame rate problems.
This was one of my suggested builds from an old thread about 1-2 months ago.
That build is badly unbalanced. Go cheaper on the video card and better on CPU.
