There is no perfect build. Part of the fun to me is picking the parts based on what the customer wants/ wants to do. For your build, I kept the case and 670 as it seemed that you were specifying those. I did pick a different brand of gpu, but its all apples/apples - get whats in your budget. For the monitor, I found one with the same resolution, but larger and cheaper. I myself started with a 21.5" and it was nice until my room mate showed up with his 24" (maybe I am getting old and my eye sight is going, but I can barely see the screen on a gameboy redface.gif).

Other than that, take parts from my suggested build or not, there are hundreds of options, I was just trying to get you the most for your $$.
It's so little!

This is much better than the original build..

One thing to mention,The CX line from Corsair is overpriced. there are better options out there like the rosewill green psu suggested.

frown.gif I actually like Vegas a lot....

The advice you're getting in this thread is quite valuable. The only thing I could suggest is that if you plan to do 80% video and 20% gaming, the AMD FX-8320 would be a GREAT buy for you. It's half the price of the 3770k and equals or outperforms in it massively threaded tasks like video editing. It matches the 3770k in gaming on a single card in most situations. However, if you ever plan to get a second GPU or you do more than casual gaming (your thread title says hardcore so I'm assuming it's not casual) then go with Intel.

If you have a microcenter near by, they run killer deals on 3570k + motherboard (169.99 and 50 off the motherboard). 3770k is only 229.99 but no mobo discount. Great way to free up money for other things.

To the OP,

In my opinion as a systems builder, I would have to agree with the listed components of the build with some exceptions (we all have our opinions and go tos for components lol), if you will be doing light editing with some gaming this is definitely the build for you (personally I'd go with an FX-83XX but you as well as others seem to favor intel). Everything seems legit (except for the CPU Heatsink, I'd go w/ a Hyper 212 w/ 2 fans and add some additional fans for a good push/pull setup; you'll be freeing up a bit of your financial resources and can use it elsewhere. Other than that I think this is a solid build, best of luck and let us know what you end up going with! thumb.gif
