New build, need expert overview.


Dec 25, 2012
Hello Tomshardware user's I'm a second time builder and have a build configured that uses every last penny in my budget, my previous build was an i5 3570k build, and this second build will be a little toned down but will suit my amateur video editing / encoding needs, I am a gamer but rarely game on my PC b/c my friends are on the xbox. Here's the build i had in mind that uses pretty much every last penny in my budget. Im an above average experienced builder but also a PC building n00b. Any comments about an opinion or mistake in my build are greatly appreciated, here's my build ! Ill be ordering tomorrow so please comment ASAP ! :)

Also my recamend is Buy "TRANSCEND" ram .reason other manufacturers give only 1year warenty but transcend give "lifetime warenty" so no need to warry about problems. Then cost "no more dealer and distributer " because anyone can "buy directly in TRANSCEND.COM" so cost lower then other.
