So I'm thinking of maybe trying to assemble a pc. I want a pretty powerful pc for gaming and video editing. I was looking to build something around $1500 (or less if possible). Now after searching the internet for a bit I found a video on youtube for a $2000 video editing/gaming rig (ULTIMATE Build a Better $2000 Gaming & Silent Workstation PC Computer "How To" Guide - YouTube). This one was build with silence and good cooling in mind. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how to take down the price a little with some different options that might work just as well. I was already think on getting just the ivy bridge i7 instead of the haswell and maybe a smaller SSD. Also, Someone suggested getting a 2011 SOCKET MOBO instead of the one listed, his reasoning was,
"For the type of Build your going for and the Budget, why not jump to Socket 2011 i7's instead.
Sometime next year I believe, Intel plans on Releasing their new X99 Chipset on Socket 2011, bringing in DDR4 RAM and Haswell-E Series i7's. Also from what I have read, they will be ditching Quad cores on the low end, and start with a minimum of 6 core CPU's for the Haswell-E series as well. in the meantime, a current Socket 2011 system might have the longevity and performance your looking for in the Video editing tasks".
Any opinons on that? Any feedback would be appreciated! Oh, and here are the specs from the video if you don't want to watch it:
Intel Core i7 4770K "Haswell" CPU
Intel 520 Series 240GB SSD
ASUS Sabertooth Z87 motherboard
Fractal Design Define R4
GeForce GTX 780 video card
WD Green 3TB hard drive
Corsair Vengeance 16GB DDR3 RAM
Seasonic G Series 550W power supply
