Suggestions on Media Editing build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
A friend has asked to help build hima machine for media editing, not hardcore rendering or anything of that sort, just editing casual videos off of a digital recorder. He has some editing software that has minimum requirements of 3gb ram, 2.66ghz quad core and a video card of atleast ati HD3000. So i would like your suggestions as to what cpu, mobo, ram and video card to run. Would like to keep this project in the ballpark of about $500 usd, so i am guessing we will be running 775 instead of 1366 unless you think that is a bad idea. thanks for the inisght!

What parts need to be covered by the $500? Just CPU, MB, RAM & GPU? If you only need those three, it's pretty easy.

Core i5-2500K ~$230
P67 motherboard ~$150
2x2GB DDR3 1600 ~$45
Radeon HD 5670 or GeForce GT 430 ~$80

If you've got a Micro Center nearby, the i5-2500K is only $190. The price for the i5-2500K is $216 1Ku. I just added some buffer since we don't know what retail pricing would actually be like.

If you need $500 to cover the whole build including case, HDD, etc, go AMD.

You're better off with an AMD build. I'd ask over on that section of the forums. They have a much better price/performance ratio.
