Default New Build

1. What YOUR PC will be used for: Video editing and rendering, programming, web development, gaming (preferably something that could play Skyrim).

2. What YOUR budget is. Somewhere around $800 CAD, preferably.

3. What country YOU will be buying YOUR parts from. Canada. Probably newegg.ca.

4. IF YOU have a brand preference: None

5. If YOU intend on using any of YOUR current parts, and if so, what those parts are. None

6. IF YOU have searched and/or read similar threads. A few.

7. IF YOU plan on overclocking or run the system at default speeds. Default speeds.

8. WHEN do you plan to build it? Rather soon, hopefully.

9. What resolution do you use? Currently using 1680x1050

So, yeah, I could do with a PC for gaming/video editing, and I'd prefer it didn't cost too much more than $800-$1000 CAD.

Edit: I'd also like this to last me around 3 or 4 years before needing any major upgrades.

P.S, that didn't include any combo deals etc as they can be gone before people look... but you could find something to save a bit more.

I hear (I'm not from Canada) that you can save a bit using NCIX (price-match).

At your current resolution that should do you a few years.. and up to 5 if your not too bothered about higher graphics settings.
