Alright, well I am building a new PC and I need helping in choosing parts. It will be used for video editing and gaming, but not the highest-end. I want it to be between the $500 and $950 range. Both Intel and AMD are fine, but I prefer nVidia over AMD. I need everything except:

Monitor
Speakers
Mouse/Keyboard
No hard drives > 320GB
Operating System

Any help would be greatly appreciated, and help with configurations would REALLY be nice.

Thank you!

OK well I would go with any Core 2 Duo, an Nvidia 7600GS, at leas 1GB of RAM, and the PSU we can figure out last.

What do you mean by

No hard drives > 320GB

Do you want me to suggest one lower then 320GB or not at all?

Sorry I did not give you that much help when I last posted. It was late.

OK what kind of games? give some examples of games so I can see how high you will be going. DirectX 9 or 10?

And do you overclock?
