Thread Starter 
Hi im building my first computer and i wanted to see if there were any parts taht i should consider changing ? Thanks for your help Its costing me overall around £630 which is about $1034 I want it to render and edit high definition video and also be able to play games. But I want it more for the editing purposes for my youtube channel www.youtube.com/RohaanSaleem

Motherboard - MSI P67A-G45 (B3) Intel P67 Express Socket 1155 Motherboard, OC Genie II
CPU - Intel i7 2600K
GPU - ScanFX HD 6850 AMD Radeon Graphics Card - 1GB
HDD - Seagate ST1000DL002 1TB
RAM - Corsair Memory XMS3 4GB DDR3 1600 MHz CAS 9 XMP Dual Channel Desktop
PSU - EZCool Infinity EZcool PS1000 800W Power Supply

I Know ive left things out but they dont really matter Also could you recommend a decent case for all this ? Thanks for your help in advance! If i can reduce this already good price then I will be really happy

PSU is overkill drop it down and get more Memory.

The cooler master HAF cases are pretty nice and you really wont have to worry about temps with them.

8GB will make a difference when dealing with high def videos and rendering more so than just about anything else it also makes multitasking nicer. 550-600w should still give you plenty of headroom. Yes I'm a hypocrite

Edit: lol just watched your video of the computer death
