Hi,
I am interesting in buying a new computer and i wanted to get an offer for it's components. it is meant to run games (well game -BF3) and some editing programs of photos and movies (like photoshop, premiere..)
i want it to be strong and good quality since i want it to last long (at least like my 6 year old computer)
i don't know too much on computers and am not a native english speaker so be soft on me with the terms and stuff :) 

thanks.

budget, location, and if you are overclocking or going to do any crossfire or SLI

and if you want it to stay great to top performing for 6 years, it wont happen

well i don't know about the budget really, i am trying to figure out how much is it going to be more or less, i guess my budget is around 800$ but i am flexible (up to 1500$)
i am leaving in Israel.
I don't know if i am going to oc it since i have never done it before thus a bit scared to do it, but am reading about it and trying to learn how to. so for now lets say i am not.
and sry but i don't know what crossfire or SLI mean :0
i don't want it to be top notch for 6 years but quite good and maybe upgradable..

thanks for the fast answer!

windows license only works on one computer unless you have retail edition

1155. 2011 is way to expensive for you

nvidia cards are a terrible value right now. unless the 660ti costs as much as a 7870, i wouldnt get it.

id get a SSD so that you can boost loading times. a 7870 can pretty much play games at ultra

ok then. get the 3470

oh and what is the price difference between the i5 2300, 2310, 2400 compared to the 3470? they are older chips but still work just as well

i thought you guys in israel have all intel stuff. they have a huge establishment there

Adobe Premier settles the GFC card choice ..... only nVidia does CUDA and CUDA rocks in video editing. I'm going to concentrate on the upper end of your $800 - $1500 budget range. This totals out to $1441 w/ promos, rebates etc.

how much is the 3450? otherwise id get a 3470 as it performs 100mhz faster

do you have a gigabyte 7870 or any other brand 660ti or a 7870?

the 3450 is ~250$ (don't ask me how)

660ti - msi 450$, zotac 455$, gigabyte 460$, asus 472$
for the 7870 i didn't find many brands but msi has it for 375$ while gigabyte for 425$, asus for 430$.
that is all i see at the moment.
