Default Put together custom pc for me please

can several people put together what they think will be a great pc for me would like as cheap as possible but i have to be realistic so looking to spend around 800-900 cheaper the better though

would like all parts from newegg

im going to be having someone build this for me once i get the parts so if you can literally include every single thing i would need that would be greatly appreciated since this aspect of computers i dont know much about

i will be using the computer for basic photoshop and video editing along with basic pc and internet tasks,and all types of multimedia stuff

you dont need to include hard drive in your selection that much i can do and i have speakers as well

so please select the following for me: motherboard,cpu,ram,video card,any additional fans or cables i will need,and a mid tower pc case and anything else you think


would greatly appreciate several peoples input on this and selections so i can compare on my own..any questions please ask

For the price that build is great. IMO it's worth buying a slightly better graphics card, but other than that you're good to go.

hm, i guess if he wanted a gfx card with some more "kick", he could get get a 5770
Newegg.com - HIS H577FM1GD Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

and a different mobo, since he wouldn't be getting that original mobo/gpu combo, like this one
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P55M-UD2 LGA 1156 Intel P55 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards

that change would add a little over $50 to the total.

Thermaltake PSU's are kind lacking, and that 4670 is even more lacking.

IMO get this case/psu
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

And one of these cards, much better then a 4670.

That CPU won'r work on that mobo. The mobo has the 1156 socket and the cpu uses the 1336 socket. If you want to stick with that mobo you should choose one of these CPUs:
Newegg.com - Intel Core i7-860 Lynnfield 2.8GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops

Newegg.com - Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops

Since you're going to do video and image editing I recommend the first one because it has Hyper Threading.
