The questionnaire from the sticky, though I restate most of it in the paragraph below. sorry for that found out about the questionnaire after I already typed out the paragraph...:
Approximate Purchase Date: within a month.
Budget Range: 700 and lower
System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, light video editing, MS office stuff, Internet browsing.
Are you buying a monitor: No
Parts to Upgrade: New build
Do you need to buy OS: Yes, looking in to windows 8 Pro
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg.
Location: California, US
Parts Preferences: Intel, Asus, nvidia, Micro-ATX MoBo.
Overclocking: no (forgot to add this at first but it is a maybe)
SLI or Crossfire: no
Your Monitor Resolution: 1680x1050
Additional Comments: looking to get one of those self contained cpu liquid coolers. like a Corsair H60
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Just want a new build for things to run smoother on all together.


So I am attempting to make a new computer build. First time doing it so yeah. For this build I am just trying to put together something that will just last me a few years until I am able to do bigger builds. For my budget I am trying to stay under 700 if that is even possible. Right now I am set on using an i5-3570k and I am not sure where to go from there, I was looking at the Asus P8Z77-V LK . But not sure. I am looking more for a micro-atx so maybe P8Z77-M PRO or P8Z77-M? Probably the most intense thing I will be doing with this build is light video editing (basically right now taking a premade hd music video, and syncing it up to music in sony vegas.)and gaming. Also thinking of going with win8. Any help would be appreciated.

You say Overclocking: no
SLI or Crossfire: no and yet you choose 3570k that is made specifically for oc.
Also, you don't need liquid cooler.

Thank you for the build, I will most likely go along the lines of this. My budget may fluctuate due to the holidays. Yeah I did notice that its hard as hell to build something like that with a budget like that I've been trying for a few weeks now.
