New Computer, Sandy Bridge, I don't really game, Just some video editing.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So i am looking at getting a new computer, like i said in the title, i am not really a gamer on the pc, i just want to edit some videos from my xbox. I am looking into the i5 sandy bridge line, so i can go with an integrated gpu. I know that the H67 allow you to use the integrated gpu. Is this the only difference between the H67 and the P67?

Anyway, here is my build, I am really looking to try to stay low on the price

yes the only difference is the onboard graphics, but still IGC is crap compared to gpus. however if budget is your main concern then by all means go with it. about ram, its ok for that price, dont expect miracles but it is a decent set. as for the CPU, dont waste your money on a non-k version of a SB cpu. you'll be wasting your money and be regreting it later if you want to do some overclocking. the i5-2500k is one of the best cpus around at this time and is definitely worth buying even spending a few more bucks. other than that everything is a go.

your welcome.

Actually I would go with the 2500K, it has a better IGP. Otherwise, nice build!

i really dont see any problems with the build except ram you might want to try some hyperX for better ocing and definately go with the unlocked version for cpu
you probably can shave off some money if you buy a cheaper case perhaps this one???

If you're planning on doing video encoding you really should look at the 2600 over the 2500. CPU dependent rendering is where hyperthreading REALLY shines at the moment.

If you don't plan to game or OC, an i7 2600 with an H67 should fit just fine.

Edit: Also, you could save some money on the PSU since a system with no GPU really doesn't need 500watts, though that is a good sales price.

Get the i5 2500k. Stay away from Roswell PSU's. Imo the best budget power supplies are OCZ.

600W OCZ StealthXStream: $40 after MIR

The i5 is certainly no slouch, but the i7 is pretty much made for media editing. If that's his only purpose why settle for 2nd best?

Also I wouldn't recommend OCZ as the best anything... they seem to have more quality control issues than any of the other big name manufacturers atm.

Thanks everybody for the quick posts. And yes, l3gend, i think i will spend the extra 20 bucks or so to get the K. And Booty Warrior, the reason i am not going with the i7 is because of the budget build portion. BadAssClocker, thanks for the case, im gonna do some more research on that, but it really does look better than the haf.

Thanks again everybody!
