i wish to build a intel based pc. in fact i will build 2 of these for both people. both will do gaming but one or both may do video editing. my limit is 1000-1500 each. this will be used for gaming and possible video editing. i have done one build my self so far.
i need help with chosing the mother board, a case, what brand of ram and speed, what graphics card(possible another maybe added with the first in the future), i can chose a psu but please list one if you can, a mother board that has at lest 5.1 or a good sound card with it(7.1 may also be needed depending on what sound system they want), cpu cooler if someone thinks a aftermarket will be needed(no overclocking will be done)(no liquid coolers please), cd drive, and at last a hard drive sdd with a slave drive? or just a normal hdd.
i know 8gb of ram is good for gaming, but how much is needed for video editing?
this is the cpu that will be used if for mostly gaming
Intel Core i7-2700K Sandy Bridge 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000 BX80623i72700K
what six core intel is good if pc is used for gaming and video editing?

these are possible boards i have looked at with 2xpci 3.0
ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASRock P67 EXTREME4 GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

if there is no overclocking then there is no need to worry so much about which motherboard... just have to worry about crossfire/sli support. although.. why not keep overclocking possible? Im just going to do a list of items and describe a little... you can choose what you want from it

With overclocking option and dual GPU

really nice answer. i will use this as a guide line for their builds their bothers so most likely will get the same build for both. there will be no over clocking cause it really isent worth it too much when your new at it.
