Hey guys,
I'm looking to build my first PC. I want to do a little bit of Video editing but it will mostly be a gaming PC. I'm a little inexperienced at this, but I've been looking at the forums and the blog and I took some of those suggestions.
Here's my list. Any advice you guys could give me would be much appreciated. I'm in America (Washington) and it's right around $550 right now and that's about where i'd like it (No more than $600).
