Indeed. Depending on what he is doing for video editing, he may need all the RAM he can get. Speed shouldn't matter as much, but capacity will probably make a difference.

Though, it would be good to know if he plans on using a 32bit or 64bit O/S. 6GB of RAM with a 32bit OS is a waste of money.

Default Re: impossible build!!!!!!

hy guys.....thanx for the gr8 replies.....really appreciate them:P

OK I read through allllll the parts (They were soooo many) and I think u guys have done an awsome job!!!!

The original build that I adviced him (and that sucked i guess) was:

core i7 920
the intel DX58SO
CM 690 compter chassi
a cooler master 550 W power supply
and a really cheap grafix card...I thnik it was a 7200 GS or 7900 GSO.....I dun remember..

any ways.....for the RAM I had a diffrent plan.....since the board has only 4 slots I decided to go with just ONE stick of 2 GB kingston DDR3 1600Mhz RAM.....and then upgrade later on when my friend had sufficent money for a new Windows 7 64 bit OS and 6 GB of RAM (that will occupy the remaining 3 slots:P)...I think if he buys the system now he'll probebly upgrade in about 4-6 months

right now he already has an OS 32 bit version...

My real concern is that would vedio editing be needing a good grafix card or a gud processor??
