Computer for HD video editing,photoshop,flash


Jul 10, 2009
Hi, i need a computer for HD video editing, and a lot of heavy photoshop and flash working.
please tell me, if these parts are fine, for this computer. i also added a monitor and a keyboard+mouse (need, don't have any good ones).
the most important parts for me are CPU & RAM, as heavy HD video editing requires a lot of it.

This is what i have built. is this fine? should i change something?

My only question is, if 6gb will be enough ram for what you do. That mobo only has room for 1 triple channel set of ram so you won't be able to add later, you'll have to replace it all. There's several boards all under the $200 price that might serve your future options better.

If you don't plan to OC, most any board will run the chips at their rated speeds just fine. If you do OC, then have higher standards for quality.


^+1 on getting a MOBO that supports at least 12GB of triple channel memory. You will want to utilize all 12GB for what you plan to do with the PC. You didn't list it but make sure you are getting a 64-bit OS.

Change your PSU to either Corsair, Antec or PC Power&Cooling at roughly the same watts. You never want to go cheap on your PSU.
