Please tweek my build. I am a novice and welcome your suggestions. I have no idea what video card to choose. Am I missing anyting? Are these parts compatable?
Use: Home pc for photo editing (lightroom), video editing (Adobe Premiere Elements), some gaming (minecraft). The only game my son plays on the PC now is Minecraft. I could see him wanting to play more games in the future. I have never overclocked but willing to give it a try.
Priorities: PC must be quiet and look stylish. I chose the micro case because this will sit on the desktop and I prefer something smaller. Did I mention quiet!
Already Have: Crucial SSD 256mb sata III and two WD 640gb hdd, Windows 7 pro x64, keyboard & mouse.
Budget: Under $1,000. I would spend more if there is a good reason to. Would love to spend less.
Looks good to me. Won't personally change anything anymore unless your son suddenly decides to play graphic-intensive games, though on that note, the 7850 should still perform fairly well and there are only a few games it'll have trouble handling.
