I have done pretty much nothing but gaming. Started writing alot of hiphop after a drunkin moment of over self confidence led me on stage @ a hip hop show battling people I suddenly found myself getting bombarded with questions of when I was going to write / record / start a youtube channel.... So I started out by writing and posting some lyrics to beats I would find on youtube on my facebook and my friends list through shares of just the lyrics has blown up to 600+ people.

Do I plan to be a famous rapper? About as much as I plan to walk into the nearest 711 and buy a million dollar winning lotto ticket lol. But I do like the fact that I can reach people and I want to start recording and get a youtube channel going. So here are my questions for this community that has taught me everything about building a desktop and over clocking!!!! <3 you all!!!! I seriously mean that, The knowledge you guys gave me has been a gift and curse... lol, Once I learned to OC now all my friends always think I know everything when I don't lol.

So Here is what I would like to Upgrade.
Can I up the CPU to an I7? Would it even matter for audio/video recording?
What is the best GPU I can put in it or do I just take what is on the mobo and thats it?
What is the best audio card I can get in there or is it once again what the mobo has is what you get?
What is the best battery I can buy? The person who gave it to me says it goes through batterys like no other (but he buys cheap ebay stuff)
What is the best 2 4gb ram I can get so I can upgrade to win 8 64 bit.

What is the best software to play a beat on and record audio to while recording myself doing the audio @ the same time. More or less I want to be able to do this.... (again this is out of my realm) (But listen to his sound quality) That is what I really want to achieve and also have it be recorded on webcam so People can see what I am saying and like any art hip hop has alot to do with the style of your flow, People like to see your reactions to punch lines etc.

(WARNING!!!! THIS IS HIP HOP MUSIC AND THERE IS SWEARING ETC IN THE VIDEO)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o3YPyeO0zcg

What would be the best mic, software, so I could achieve exactly what he is doing in the video. I want to hear the audio in headphones and not myself but have it record it all nice and clean as well as the video.

Thanks and I am going to post this in audio section as well! Thanks again guys!!!!
