Something went wrong with my original post here it is again.
hello all. first time build.i'm gonna be doing video editing, gaming in the near
future, and multi tasking with a seconday monitor.When i am gaming or editing, i want
to be able to have other functions running on the side. such as skype and internet browsing.
I dont want backround actions to slow me down such as video rendering.
Budget: I'm going to list the parts below that i picked out so far. The total so far is at $1100.
I still need to choose a power supply and an SSD to store the OS. As well as a regular hard drive
for the bulk of storage. I only chose to run with one video card for the time being. But i want to
be able to upgrade to dual when i need it later in the future.I don't want to exceed $1500
for the initial build.
Parts list: Buying all parts from Newegg.com
Motherboard is the Asus Maximus V Gene. I chose this in hopes of not having to upgrade this
part of the build for a long wile.
CPU:Intel I7 3770 Ivy bridge 3.4 GHz (3.9 HGz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad core
Video card:EVGA SuperClocked+ 03G-P4-3663-KR GeForce GTX 660 Ti 3GB 192-bit
GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card:
Again not sure. i chose this because I perfer a less flashy looking card.
RAM:Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB)
240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800):
I have heard great things about Mushkin,they are located here in Denver CO. So I would like to run
with this brand.I am open to other brands if it comes to that.
Power supply: all i know is that it needs to be modular and fit into my case.
when and if i upgrade to dual SLI,i want the power supply to be capable provide the power.
Storage:I want an SSD just to store the Windows 7 OS. As for the main storage on a regular
HDD, I could use a suggestion for level of capacity.
