I'm building a system that I will use for gaming, video editing, programming. Programming is the least I'm worried about, it doesn't take much, but what I'm worried about is specs for gaming and video editing and if the hardware will clash. I read that i-7 HT technology is not necessarily good for gaming, but it's good for video editing, is this true? But besides that, I'm just wondering what you all think of the build. i have about $1500 budget, but I can go up to $200 higher and I can definitely go lower if some of my components are not necessary.
Please take a look at what I have here and if you have any suggestions that would be great. Another thing is that some hardware might be overkill or some not enough, if you could spot that, let me know. If I could also bring the price down a bit that's always better. I would also like to know if this build will handle FC3 and BF3 on ultimate settings with the monitor I'm getting. Aaaand one more thing is 3D gaming, movies. I'd like to know if my build will work with the monitor and what's your opinion on this whole thing, should i get it or not?
And there you have it. I'm planning on reusing an old mid atx case that i bought in 2005, the video card is a bit longer than the space available, but i'll try to think of something. My main concern is that these components go with each other and that I'm not spending too much than what I need it for.
Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot guys!
Oh, i am just saying that for gaming(which most people think intel is way better than AMD at) is the better choice, the i7 will have similar performance to an i5 for games and here is a link doing i7 3770k vs FX 8350
