Change the 1tb SSD for a 120gb ssd and a hdd. Then with the saved money, upgrade your GPU to a 780ti.

Is 8gb enough for editing?

U mean 2-780s? Thats an extra 450 i rather not spend ( i can always get another 780 later right?)

Well i tought having one Ssd would be less hassle.
Whats the benefit to ssd + hdd? $400 seems ok for a ssd to me.

I watch alot of blu-rays. Its only $2 per movie, sometimes i rent 1 get 1 free.

My bad i was told to get the 550w rosewill hive on here (that it was good). ill check out the brands u suggested

Yes. You can always upgrade to 16GB later on.

Yeah, 780s. I edited my post. If you follow my suggestions you'll have more than enough money for a second GPU. Like with RAM, you could get another later.

The benefit to an SSD + HDD is that you're not spending $400 on a drive. That's literally half the budget of most people's PCs.

If that's the case, get a $20-30 blu ray drive then, not a $100 one.

Do you have a Microcenter near you? I got a 4790K + Motherboard for like $399 from them.

If you really don't want to overclock your build looks good for video editing.

I thought that Video editing likes GHz and Hyperthreading?

If you afford the slight jump, I would recommend the 4790k, you get a higher base clock and turbo clock for a slight difference, which I suppose would help your case as you would not want to overclock, but you could have the option to (Provided you change your cooler if you decide to)

Although I'm not exactly sure if the H97 Motherboards can overclock.

4790 3.6ghz
4790K 4.0ghz

Is it worth the $40?


If i add the Gigabyte GA-Z97X-GAMING 7 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard, that $62 more than the board i have right now. And it does OC.

The clock speed difference is not worth $40, but the ability to overclock is, if you care about it.
