Hi. I was hoping to get a little input on my proposed first build below. I’d like to know if all these parts will work well together in general and specifically for HD video editing. Beyond editing, I mainly use my computer to download a steady stream of movies, etc, while surfing the net and watching video. I’ve cherry picked what I consider to be the best parts that I want, but I want to make sure the sum of those parts isn’t less than the whole, if that makes sense. In other words, the parts may look good on paper, but together will they be a great machine or incompatible, etc? Any help is appreciated, and the more detail the better. Here’s the proposed build: CPU: Core i7 950 3.06GHz 8M L3 Cache LGA1366 Motherboard: Not sure here. $200--$300 max Maybe: Gigabyte LGA1366 SATA3 ATI CrossFireX ATX GA-X58A-UD3R Or: ASUS LGA 1366 Intel X58 Republic of Gamers ATX Rampage III Formula So many choices. RAM: Corsair TR3X6G1600C8D Dominator 6 GB 3 x 2 GB PC3-12800 1600MHz 240-Pin DDR3 Will eventually double this to 12 GB. GPU: Again, so many choices. Video editing over gaming, but option to game would be nice. Was thinking under $200, EVGA brand nVidia, maybe this one: EVGA GeForce GTS450 FPB 1 GB GDDR5 PCI-Express 2.0 Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black 1T to start, then might upgrade to SDD down the line. Will partition a 60-100 gig chunk for the OS. DVD: Samsung (already purchased) Cooling: Still researching this. Any help appreciated. 2 affordable options: Cooler Master Hyper 212 cpu cooler ($28) Corsair Hydro H70 ($110) ? PSU: Is 750 watts enough if I don’t plan on overclocking right away? Corsair CMPSU-750TX 750-Watt TX Series 80 Plus Or: Corsair CMPSU-750HX 750-Watt HX Professional Series 80 Plus Case: Cooler Master HAF 932 OS: Windows 7 Pro 64 bit system builder Think that's all the parts I need, right? Thanks again!
