I am new to building a computer. I've always used Dell laptops and I think I am finally going to get a decent desktop computer.
I am not much of a gamer and will be using the computer mostly for watching HD movie, listening mp3, doing some graphic works with photoshop, video editing (not all that hardcore just basic stuff) with Camtasia/flash/adobe premier or other video editing softwares.
My budget is around $400-500.
I've done some research and I would like to get i5 or i7 but I don't know if it is realistic considering my budget..
I am not sure if I need a separate graphic card for video editing purposes or watching HD movies. I will be getting Windows 7 and maybe 500gb to 1TB for hard drive (depending on price..).
I would love to have a case that I can possibly upgrade later (maybe nice graphic card, sound card, more rams for Diablo 3 haha.) and energy saving power supply would be great as well.
Any recommendations, suggestions would help!
