Hey guys, about a year ago or more, i was planning to build my own computer for video editing, and some gaming use. I never got to building one as the need wasn't there and prices were quickly falling. Now a lot has changed, many new processors and price drops,and my need for a new editing system is increasing. I wanted to keep my budget around 800 dollars. I plan to build a completely new system from scratch (i dont have a desktop to take parts from) i have the monitor keyboard and mouse, i just need the tower and pc components. I should be able to get hands on an XP cd so i wouldnt need that either.
My question is can anyone help recommend a build to me around this price point? i looked at some of the stickies, but all seems overwhelming to what i have been use to.
Just for reference i have my old wishlist build from a year ago (Outdated deffinetly) https://secure.newegg.com/NewVersion...istTitle=Build
I Would like to keep the tower. i know the graphics card/cpu should change, im not sure what ram is recommended nowadays.
Also as i think my gaming needs arent as neccessary anymore, i might want to consider a workstation card, but im nearly clueless in those areas. Mainly i will be running Adobe production suite of applications, and handling video files. Hopefully i would like the new build to handle Highdef video formats for editing. Not sure how much i can get with my 800 budget but i would like to see a build around this point so i can use it as reference to what current prices are and recommended computer parts. Thanks!
hope this wasnt to much to read/ask. heh
