A 660 ti trounces the old quadro 2000 in video editing, my suggestion :

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($329.99 @ Newegg)

If you already have ssd, then ignore it, but if you don't i recommend going with a one with 120GB at least :

What about upgrading to 670 for the GPU? Is it worth the extra money?

It does't seems so, the sweet spot is the 660 ti for value : http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-660-ti-...

You should get a ssd if you don't have one, like the ones i above mentioned.


Thanks so much. Those ssds seem good. I'll definitely go for the 660 ti then. That case also looks really cool.

yes, it's a quality silent case, the asus 660 ti is also the most silent gpu of the 660 ti, so you'll get good quietness around.

Only reason to get a 670 over a 660Ti is gaming performance, the compute performance performance between them is effectively the same (weak).
If you need OpenCL performance, Radeon cards are a better bet.

I'l admit I dont know much about Workstation cards and what order their ranked in, Firepro vs Quadro vs Tesla or anything, so I'l leave that up to you.

A 660 ti is fine, here's a guide : http://www.studio1productions.com/Articles/AfterEffects...

I think it's better getting a much better quality case than the zalman one.
The fractal is a suberb case : http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/lian-li-pc-b12-nano...
That xfx psu will pay shipping cause it's not over 100$ parts.
There's good combos on newegg with the msi board+i7, ram+gpu, like the ones that i listed.

Yeah, I think I'm going to go with the 660. About the motherboards, which one is better, the ASRock or MSI, I can't figure out a difference besides price. Is there a difference?

There have the same specs, the msi though it's standard atx, the pro 3 is a bit shorter mobo, also in terms of power phases the pro 3 got 4+1, the G45 got 6+1.
Don't forget that you get a combo discount of 25$ with the msi + i7
As for the 660 gtx you get a combo discount of 13$ on newegg.
Or if you mean a 660 gtx non ti : http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

So I've decided to go with these parts

CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($329.99 @ Newegg)
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($24.99 @ Newegg)

Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($80.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB Video Card ($269.99 @ Newegg)
Case: Fractal Design Define R4 w/Window (Titanium Grey) ATX Mid Tower Case ($89.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Rosewill Hive 550W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($49.99 @ Newegg)
Optical Drive: Samsung SH-224BB DVD/CD Writer ($15.99 @ Newegg)

In addition, I was looking into getting a battery backup, just to be safe. Any suggestions?
Also, I'm not very good with the actual electronics, only software. Does anyone have any experience with microcenter and them putting together the components?

Dont know a lot about UPS' (Uninterruptible Power Supply) unfortunately, so could really recommend what to get. Just make sure that it can output the wattage the machine will require under load for a good few minutes. In the case of a power outage that will give you the time to save everything and close down properly.

Not a resident of the US, so never worked with Microcenter, but they seem to have a good reputation around the forums. NCIX also offer a system assembly for something like $50.

In my opinion you don't need one, as for the assemblage of the components, any pc shop will do, the cost,though, may vary.
If you want to assemble the parts in a microcenter store, get the i7-3770k there and the asus P8Z77-LK(really a good mobo with sli support, all the features you need), the i7 goes for 230$ there, and the asus motherboard for 80$, see here : http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/cc7faafd#/cc7faafd/...
You get an i7+z77 mobo for the same price as another store with only the i7.

Two things: I was talking with some friends, and they suggested that I would probably need a larger psu, in the neighborhood of 800w. Thoughts?

Also, just looking at the case, there doesn't seem to be a place for an optical drive. Am I just blind?

For a single GPU, 550W is enough. If you were going Crossfire/SLI then you should get 750W.
Its a common mistake, most people see that it says "500W PSU required" in the cards specs and assume the card itself needs 500W, then end up buying a way too big PSU. That number includes the rest of the system.
Also the recommended power requirement is judged based on the worst case scenario, where you have a low quality PSU that overstates its capabilities, and AMD chip with a 125W draw, then throw another 100W on top for good measure.
A quality 550W is enough for your rig.

The Fractal Design R4 has a swinging door, the optical bays are behind it.
