Why would u ever build it yourself unless its fun for you and u get a kick out of building them, but if u just want a nice ass computer I would always go with pros building, burning em in, testing em, warranty them, and lifetime tech over me building it, maybe gettin it right, one thing wrong wont boot, voided warranties, just wondering, only way I could see is if U love building P.C.s would be a reason.

It's cheaper. Better warranty, (Per part, so if one goes bad, send in said part not the whole unit) higher quality.

This is also an enthusiast forum. We void warranties for the hell of it.

Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-EP35-DS3L -$90

Hard Drive: Seagate 7200.10 250GB -$57
PSU: CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX 550W -$100
GPU: Radeon HD3870 -$150
Case: COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 -$50
oops: That costs $782 but I bet you can find some deals to cut the cost.
You could cut costs with a cheaper PSU.

Reasoning for the parts:
CPU: If your doing ANYTHING with video, a quad is a must
CPU Cooler: Great cooler for the quad. There are many other alternatives as well
Mobo: Good Ocer, since your not gaming dual x16 slots are not needed
RAM: Great RAM for the price. When working with video and photos 4GB+ is a must
Video card: The 3870 is a great card for video editing. It off loads the CPU due to the UVD (unified video decoder). This allow you to play back video at teh native frame rate and resolution while editing it.
PSU: great psu. Dont need to say anything more
Case: I have built computer for people and have used this case on 4 builds. It is a great budget case. Otherwise, get a CM690. The pictures do not do that case justice.


what a silly question
ugh everything was good, until you mentioned the cpu cooler, that ruined it for me. Everyone always suggests tuniq tower, or ultra 120, newer things out are better, and lighter, get a xigamatek, a sunbeam core contact freezer, ocz vendetta 2, those all are = or better for 1/2 the price
Also go for a 4850, I've seen them for $150 AR. PM me if your really interested in a link or anything else

Make sure to use http://www.pricecanada.com/ and http://www.shopbot.ca/ to pricematch at NCIX, you can often save 20-30% on parts. I ended up getting stuff from NCIX at below cost through a going out of business sale at another online store.

Edit: Mizike, do you have some kind of personal affiliation with the eBay seller you keep linking? You flog them rather strongly in atleast 2 seperate threads that I have read.

No of course not lol, I have only just joined and put it in two threads concerning building PCs, I have purchased a couple and I have got a couple for my family and friends from them and there just so high quality and the price is so low I recommend it to people, sometimes people dont think of ebay stores for these things, I love my E8400 that I am running right now from em, same one I asked about overclocking on here when I first registered, Just passing on the great builders to people that want high quality stuff u cant get at circuit citys and best buy ect, I mean I priced the equipment in all the builds I got from them and its retarded how low they are for them to build it, thats all. If u dont want me to mention it so be it, just passing on my good fortune. And yeah building em, ahh dont know about saving money, more control and better quality if u pick ur parts u want to put in, I would probably give it a shot but I dont think I could build one from scratch, fix, replace, add no problem but from scratch dont have the patience, so choosing my parts and having it built ahhhh thats the stuff lol

No offense intended, but the amount of effort you put in to promoting the eBay seller you linked makes it appear that you have more than a passing interest in their success. Not only that, but trying to dissuade a person from building their own computer on a forum practically dedicated to the perfection of that very subject is ludicrous, especially with the reasons you gave (voided warranties, "one thing wrong and it won't boot", too hard to pick the parts, little/no patience, ect).
