I desperately need help creating a part list with a strict budget of 700$ (With Monitor). I want it to game better then the upcoming Playstation 4 and it to run Sony Vegas or Premier Pro quickly. This has been extremely hard for me, and it since the cpu is what i may have to cut back the most it won't render as quickly as I want to ( 1 hour video = 35 mins or less). I also want it to be a great performer in the less intensive photoshop. To reach this level I would allow suggestions of over-clocking, and whatever cpu/gpu must be over-clockable. Gpu acceleration would be nice, too. Please help, it seems to be impossible, something close to it on budget.

aint happening.

my best shot at it. going lower will = less performance than a ps4 if thats what you are looking forward to compare against. i can tell you that you can render a video in less time than 25 mins though
