I am going to build my first rig and really want advice:
Money: 500-600 pounds is my budget. Possibly slightly more.
Uses: Video editing, loads of downloading, loads of watching movies. Lots of multitasking of greedy software
Case: I really dont know but from my research so far I quite like the Coolermaster Storm Enforcer Mid Tower OR Cm Storm Mid Tower. I like their designs but any suggestions welcome.
PSU: Not sure at all- any advice on what I need?
RAM: Probably 8gb Corsair ram?
Motherboard: Not sure at all- any advice on what I need?
CPU Cooler: Not sure at all- any advice on what I need?
CPU: Preferably i7, maybe i5. I DO NOT overclock or do much gaming.
HDD: I am not sure because I dont really think I need a SSD and they are more expensive. In total I want at least 1TB or more space but not sure if I should just get a hard drive/s or a SSD as well.
SDD: See above
GFX Card: I dont do much gaming but do use a lot of video software etc but no where as near as much as some people do.
FAN: Most people place a lot of emphasis on fans/ coolers but for my above reasons I dont think I need to worry to much and 1 should be enough. What do you reccomend?
One thing I have noticed is that AMD chips are a lot cheaper and people I have talked to have said you get "more bang for your buck" but others say that the newer processors like the AMD Bulldozer is really unreliable. I am really not sure what to use but siding more towards Intel i5. What do you think, and any advice for the rest of my build?
