:welcome: TheSnwbrdr3

Got to go out for a while but will be back online later, while I`m away have a look at the attached list of parts and see what you think http://pcpartpicker.com/p/LoS7

NB: I would consider Windows 7 Pro for the OS but wanted to check with you first.


Not bad, but that processor is WAY too over powered.
Drop down to an i5-3570k and upgrade your GPU to a 680.
You can easily over clock.

The build has been configured with some video editing taken into account and should this become more advanced, there would be know need for a expensive CPU upgrade.

Thanks for the clarification iammykyl :thumbsup:

Paying circa $200 for a CPU only to find that it does not meet the requirements would as I see it be "bad" :(

Hello again

Sorry for the break in responding. I was able to put together the computer on Friday night with the help of some friends, although all they were really doing were holding things when I needed three hands.

I truly couldn't have done without everyone's help so I thank you for that.

And here is the final product! Can't see much but I wanted to include some image. Thanks again

Thank you for the update TheSnwbrdr3, well done and congratulations.


The computer look great and a nice job of cable management.


I hope it serves you well.
