I'm finally going to be building a computer for myself. Saved up my nickels and dimes and I'm just about there. I'm going to be video editing using Sony Vegas Pro. I edit MP4 files so they are huge files that I'll be messing with and rendering. Also I plan to start PC gaming again. I haven't played a pc game for about 5-6 years now.
I'm going AMD simply because of the price. I know the Phenom II X6 just came out but $300 is a bit steep for me right now. I'll wait until the price drops to buy it.
Alright so here is what I'm going for.
Antec Twelve Hundred Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
MSI 790FX-GD70 AM3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor
XFX HD-583X-ZNFV Radeon HD 5830
CORSAIR CMPSU-850TX 850W SLI Ready
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 - Getting two sets
Western Digital Caviar Blue WD6400AAKS 640GB 7200 RPM SATA
Sony Optiarc 24X DVD/CD Rewritable Drive Black SATA
I left out the Monitor, Keyboard, and Mouse. I have a 23" monitor in my wish list and I'm thinking about doing a dual setup. I'm also sticking to the onboard sound card for now.
