I recently purchased a Canon HF200 camcorder (AVCHD) and my present computer will not handle the files. I have an emachine t5246. I am not a gamer and have only used my pc for internet or burning movies. I am looking to build a pc based around the athlon ii x4 620, ASRock M3A785GXH/128M, with 4gb ddr3 (undecided). I was planning to reuse as much from my previous machine as possible, mainly the HD, case and 300W power supply. I do not plan to overclock, but would like to retain the option. My questions are
1) Is this a sound choice?
2) Do I need a larger power supply if at most I will have (2) hard drives and (1) burner?

eMachines T5246 (i included this, but I know these specs are not even on your radar)
CPU 2.21GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+
2GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM
Graphics 128MB (shared) Nvidia GeForce 6150SE
Hard drive 400GB, 7,200 rpm
16x dual-layer DVD burner
I have the mATX version of that mobo and I love it. If the bios is the same as mine, you can likely up the base clock to 250mhz @ 1.300v, up NB to 2500mhz @ 1.2v and run 3.25Ghz on stock cooling. I even managed to get 3.25Ghz with Cool N' Quiet on and idle at 1000mhz which saves a ton of energy.

Thanks, good to know. I have never overclocked nor built a system, but it has definitely peaked my interest after reading some of the posts. Do you think the 300W is too small for that system? I saw that under load it can draw up to 170W. I realize power supplies are cheap but trying to stay under a 350 budget for whole setup.

Today's noob maybe tomorrow's top OCer. Only question I hate is the one some didn't ask and i could have helped. U got start someone and i think every should start ocing on a locked CPU. Makes u learn more than just changing multi to get to a high OC.

hm.. still confuse which one I should get.But , what's the major difference on those 780G or 790GX or etc ? sorry should be asking at motherboard section , hope you wouldn't mind spoil a bit explanation here.

OCNF,

From what he posted above, "* One physical PCI-E x16 slot" for 780, * ATI CrossFire for 790GX.

Basically this means 780 will only let you run one Video card, 790 will let you run multiple video cards(cross fire). Think of the 790 is basically the more premium version of 780(it's technically a faster 780 labled 790".

There's also a few more complicated differences between them such as features on the motherboards where to cut power consumption the lower chipsets remove extra and condense space. You'd have to look further into their tech specs though on the actual chipset.
