Default New Build Help ..

Im looking into buying a new PC , i have a good understanding of how to build it once i have the parts , and i can get help from my Dad if i get stuck on that.

Its just the parts i can't decide on :

I'm looking to spend maybe 1000-1500 on the system , would i be better off with an i7 920 , Or maybe a hexacore AMD ?

Don't really understand RAM sizes either , do you really need 12Gb or more RAM ? Or would 6Gb Do the Job ?

I'll be using the PC mainly for Heavy Video editing , and my old packard bell system isn't cutting it anymore :P

Any reply would be great , Thanks.

If you're doing heavy editing video I would say that 12GB may be the best option. But you can buy 6GB now and buy another 6GB later on if needed.

ASUS P5P77D :: INTEL i5 750@3.6 GHz :: Asus HD4890 :: 4GB Gskill Ripjaw 1600MHz CL7 :: WD Black 1TB :: SSD OCZ Vertex2 60GB :: Corsair 750TX :: LG L204WT :: Windows 7 x64

<<<<<<<<<< If you think I've been helpful in anyway rep me :p
