I am looking to make a gaming/sony vegas rendering system for £550. I know its not that much but I don't need the renders to be super fast(Half an hour would be great!) or my graphics card to be the best! I need it to be able to play most games at quite high settings, and I will be playing at 1920 x 1080. I need to be able to render quite quickly as my current laptop takes FOREVER. That's all I need really. I don't care about what company you choose, as long as you could justify it over the other company.

Hey, for 550 you can get quite awesome gaming/rendering PC.
8 core CPU, high end GPU. Ofc you budget is still limited, thats why AMD build is your choice. Same intel build would go FAR over your budget. But this CPU is on almost par with intel i5 so you're good.

here's the build:

I forgot to say I need an OS with this aswell, but I can stretch to £580 with the OS.

I made this one aswell with some slight adjustments because that MSI card is not capable of Crossfire or at least it says so on the part picker and I would like to be able to slot another one in the the future.

I quickly made this one up aswell and decided to go for a worse CPU,a better motherboard and a better GPU.

Here is an intel version because I don't know If I should wait with the i3 for a while and use it until I can afford an i5 because FX only goes up to 8350 while if I get an i3 I can upgrade to an i5 with better performance.
