Gaming & DSLR Editing PC

Approximate Purchase Date: In two weeks once I get my tax return.

Budget Range: $700-$800 (Do your best to not go overboard. This price includes after taxes and such)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming (Minecraft, Team Fortress 2), recording console gameplay in HD (It's for a site that I work for) and DSLR Video Editing (I have been using my crappy Dell Inspiron 15r for editing in Vegas and it has no problems except for some lag in the real time footage).

Are you buying a monitor: Yes (Outside of this though)

Do you need to buy OS: Yes

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Anywhere is fine.

Location: City, State/Region, Country - Ohio

Parts Preferences: by brand or type I prefer and Intel i5 or i7 (I'm sure the i7 isn't going to work, but just letting you know), Western Digital 7200RPM HDD (Hopefully a Terabyte) and not a Corsair PSU (Since I have read terrible things about it). I would prefer the Radeon HD 7870 or GTX 660 (If possible).

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920 x 1080

    Hi , you need to wait a bit. Then when the proce is right take a Intel xeon 1230V2
    B-75MoBo or H-77 , Z-77is fine too. What is cheaper take that.
    8-16GB ram. GTX 660(ti)
    That kind of build cost now about 8-900 $
    I think that price is going down.

    So wait a bit and when the price hits 800 hit the buy button.
    Then you have the future proof set for next five to seven years.

    Is there any way to cut the price? The OS system wasn't added :( Could I get a Western Digital instead?
