How in the world are you video editing at 1680x1050?
Ha! Its not fun nor the best setup. Like i said I havent been doing it very long but i've noticed its starting taking more and more of a toll on this pc. I will probably pickup 2 24" monitors here soon to better fit my needs. This thing has been built for like 2 years if not 3 so I know its fairly outdated. Thanks guys I'll start looking for a 4790k first, then a gpu, then maybe step up to faster ddr3 ram and a 16gb kit
