Hello, I'm a video editor, computer animator on a budget.  I read the sticky about what you need in order to build a computer, but just wondered if one of you nice, skilled folks would double check what I'm about to buy.  For comptability sake and so forth...

Everything here is compatible but i suggest changing the power supply to this because it has a better build quality and higher efficiency rating. The graphics card you have chosen is last generation, this card is from the current line of graphics card from AMD. If you don't plan to overclock then the i7-3770 would save you a few dollars. For the case, you may like the  Corsair Obsidian 550D.

That whole Cooler Master "eXtreme power plus" series has a bad reputation.  Agree with killerx525 here.

 

Videocard- I would really try for a 660ti if possible, a regular GTX 660 if I couldn't swing the cash for the ti.  don't know what monitor you are/will be using, but video cards with 1gig of memory are starting to be a bottleneck at higher resolutions with the eyecandy on.

 

Otherwise, a happy build.


I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)

3770K @4.5, Corsair H100, GTX780, 16gig Samsung, Obsidian 700 (yes there is a 700)

Excellent suggestions.  I will heed this good advice.  So the 620watts should be enough to run everything okay?

620 watts is more then enough for a single graphics card system :)
