My System Specs

Default Computer for video editing?

Hello everyone! Happy Holidays!

Well, it looks like the woman is going to be taking a video rendering class and photo-editing. Not really sure how extensive it goes, but she will be using Adobe after-effects and photoshop and some other programs for video editing and audio stuff with Cubase. I know from past experience that my current hardware will NOT be enough to render certain videos in a quick manner. (Sometimes we have to leave the computer on overnight to render, I HATE doing that.)

What YOUR PC will be used for: Video production, and high-end gaming. She's been wanting to FRAPs since forever!

What YOUR budget? $2000 is the max, yes. I was frugal on Christmas.Sales FTW

What country? USA

IF YOU have a brand preference? Intel 1155 GEN mobos. Anything with functionality and reliability is great! Hyper threading would be nice!

If YOU intend on using any of YOUR current parts, and if so, what those parts:
Just a blue-ray burner.

IF YOU plan on overclocking or run the system at default speeds: I'll probably OC it, but the Vcore isn't going higher than 1.35v. From what I know and the ambient temp... My current rig gets HOT!

WHEN do you plan to build it? Next month? This month? Not exactly sure, but soon.

What resolution do you use? 1920 x 1080


My current idea:

Case: Thermaltake Level 10 GT $200 (She requested hot-swaps, if possible)
ALTERNATIVE: Could settle for Corsair 600t $170
Cpu cooling: CORSAIR H100 $110 (Ambient temps kill me, I'd rather not use air-cooling)
Psu: CORSAIR Professional Series HX850 $169.99
Gpu: EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 1536MB $509.99
Mobo: ?????????????????????????????????????????????????? ?
CPU: i7 2700k $370 or if I cannot find the 2700k i7 2600k $320
Ram CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB $105.99
HDD: Don't need over 500gb (Uses external drives, waiting for the prices to drop)????
SSD: Can I fit one, in the budget? Maybe SRT or something OCZ caching???
TOTAL SO SAR: $1436. I got $534 to burn on a Mobo and HDDs and SSDs.

This look nice? It's only a blueprint. I might switch things around if Ivy bridge IS coming out in April/May and the next series of GPUs are released.

I have no clue if SLI/Crossfire is supported when rendering videos!
