‚

I'm looking to build a PC that I plan to use for gaming and video editing, for relatively cheap. I've already got a list of parts but I'd like to make sure that they work together, or if anyone has advice about certain parts and if I'd be better off choosing a different part, I'd be open to that. Also, I'm not sure if I should get fans, or how many I should get, what size, etc., so help on that would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I made a new thread here because the title got messed up on this one: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/313654-13-advice-gaming-build

    Why would you recommend the 560? I thought it was only a bit better than the 6870? And it's a good bit more expensive.

    I'll try get a orsair or XFX PSU then.
