    Default Editing rig advice

    Hey guys, just thought I would pop on here and see if I could get some advice on a video editing rig I'm trying to put together!

    Here's what I'm going for so far:


    CPU - Intel i7 4770k quad-core 3.5 GHz
    RAM - 16GB Corsair DDR3
    HDD - Western Digital Red 1TB (x2)
    SSD - Crucial 240GB, 6GB/s
    GPU - ASUS Nvidia GTX650

    If I would be better changing some of the above, please let me know!

    The things I'm not so sure about:

    Motherboard - a fairly decent one of course, I'm guessing most come with built-in sound cards now?
    Power supply - would I be best to get a case + power supply + cooling unit?
    Monitor - A decent, not-too-expensive monitor would be nice too.


    Looking for this to come in and around 1000.

    Thanks in advance!

    Paul.

    Motherboards mostly have built in soundcards. You can get a standalone card for cheap as well if required. Specs look good, power supply you'll want something between 650 an 800 I imagine. Monitors, look at what's cheap and has strong reviews if you are working on a budget. You can always upgrade monitor down the line. As far as a case goes, get something roomy with decent fans. Make sure cables are neat inside for maximum air flow and you should be good to go.
