For video and image editing an fx 6300 oced is better than a i3,also the opencl can accelerate the process
This is actually quite solid for the 700$.
e) NCIX also has their 10$ off coupon for first time customers

Don't get Bulldozer... I am glad I jumped from the 4170 to the 6350. The 63XX Overclocks better, performs better, multitask/singletasks better and has better temps. +Piledriver is beastly compared to Bulldozer...

Not really overclocking?

Go with a locked multi Xeon with Hyperthreading (its basically an i7 3770 for less money)

For the record, I obviously just tweaked GerneralKayoss' build since he did such a great job and basically picked the same parts I would've. Tip my hat to him.

I agree if the OP was into overclocking and wanted an amd rig and was primarily gaming.

However, due to the OP's preferences, there may be better options

My last "gaming PC" died in 2008. So i've been on console exclusively for the last 6 years or so. I just started ordering hardware for my new rig recently, and the leap in power and technology over the last 5 years has been astounding. Have spent the last month or so catching up smile.gif

Combo discount on the i5-4440 and Capstone 450-M (semi-modular) at newegg, pay the same as i5-4440 and Capstone 450 (non-modular). A little cleaner build as i belive only 20+4pin and 4+4pin cables are pre-attached, so no unused cables laying around. You could also step down to a 750ti as suggested by others for 20-30 less than the 660 and invest in something else like an optical drive maybe? Different case?

I second the Xeon build. If you can find a 650ti, I would get that instead of the 750ti. More CUDA cores, and it supports SLI unlike the 750ti which does not. Draws a little more power, but not by too much.
