Default Hey guys building a rig and need some of your professional opinions

Hey Everyone!

Im new to the forums so wanted to start by saying hello

Ok basically I built a rig a long time ago (about 5 years) and ALOT has changed since than so I need alot of advice. I know some stuff about building but far from where you guys are im sure. I will be using this computer for primarily editing video in sony vegas pro 9 and a good amount of gaming.

This is what I have so far im def. not married to it I just wanted some knowledgeable people to take a look for compatibility and suggestions on what I should change. Thank you in advance! and I look forward to posting here

Default Re: Hey guys building a rig and need some of your professional opinions

Grab this combo and grab it fast:

* AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor (Model: HDZ965FBGMBOX)
* ASUS EVO AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 AMD Motherboard (Model: M4A87TD)
* GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card (Model: GV-N460OC-1GI)
* G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (Model: F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM)
* Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive (Model: WD5001AALS)
* SAMSUNG 22x DVD+/-R CD/DVD Burner Black SATA (Model: SH-S223C) - OEM
* COOLER MASTER HAF 922 Black Steel + Plastic and Mesh Bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case (Model: RC-922M-KKN1-GP)
* CORSAIR 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply (Model: CMPSU-650TX)

Combo Discount: -$70.91
Combo Price: $711.00
$691.00 after $20.00 Mail-In Rebate(s)

That will save you $163 before the rebate. If you want the sound card, go for it. Take the extra you saved and get a decent sized monitor; I just got this one (for $30 less during Black Friday) and love it:
