Looking to buy a new PC that will be used to edit videos. My budget is £500. 

 

What do you think of the these: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sphere-PC-Intel-Haswell-Quad-Core-i7-4770k-3-5GHz-8GB-RAM-500GB-USB3-0-Computer-/321157198242?pt=UK_Computing_DesktopPCs&hash=item4ac675f1a2

 

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200935736403&ssPageName=ADME:X:eRTM:GB:1123

 

Is the following very important when purchasing a new i7 4770k powered PC?

Case, Power Supply, Motherboard, Cooling?

 

Thanks everyone.

On a budget of 500 you're highly unlikely to find anything too powerful.

 

Neither of those options look too promising, neither comes with an operating system (that adds something like 60 to the prices listed)

The second one comes without a hard drive (theres another 30-40)

Lastly neither comes with a decent graphics card.

 

They are decent enough bases for later expansion but you're going to have to sink another 100-400 into them before you see any sort of decent performance.

 

To answer your question:

Case: mostly an aesthetic thing, as long as it fits your components you dont have to worry too much about it, though airflow (read: number of fans) should be considered

Power Supply: You want an adequate one for everything that you will have in there, I tend to get larger than needed (30-50% safety factor for what I am putting in at the time)

Motherboard: VERY important, you could have the best processor in the world that fits into your motherboard but still not be able to run solitaire due to limitations... alright maybe that's a little exagerrated but motherboard selection is very important, you need to find one with all the matching specs to your other hardware.

Cooling: your computer runs better when cool, so the better the cooling the better your computer will run, maybe it wont be a noticeable difference but there will be a difference, definitely something spending a little extra on wont hurt.

Thanks for the reply Green Giant. I have a spare hard drive ready to go in and OS is not a issue. 

 

I got this reply from the seller of the second link: The PC will come with the motherbaord H81 (MAX 16GB): GA-H81M-H. The PSU is a 500W OEM PSU that comes with matted office case.
