Hi, my name is david and this is my first post here.
I was wondering if i could get some guidance on a build i'm very interested in.
There are a few products i've had my eye on, and i was wondering if they would be a good match for what i want to do.
(New build uses: Major multitasking (Photoshop, Sony Vegas, Multiple applications running at once, Web browsing, Video Burning/Backups, Light Gaming (ATM), and some music editing software) )
I switch back and forth between many applications and multitask heavily. I edit both high definition music and video files quite often, so i'd like to build this computer to accommodate that.
The products i'm interested in is this line that AMD has [link here] i'm not sure which would be most appropriate
and then the eyefinity concept so i could run 3 monitors [link here]
and i had seen this drive which i'm interested in by corsair [link here] and the last thing i can think of is a bluray read/write drive
I completed these build questions to help
Budget: How much money are you willing to spend on the new build?
$1200 - $1500 if possible?
Brands: Are there any brands of components you want or don't want?
AMD, Western Digital
Multitasking: Will you be multitasking with this computer and if so, how much?
Yes - i multitask heavily every day
Gaming: Will you be gaming and if so, how much and how new are the games?
yes, in the future i'll be gaming more - but that isn't my number one priority
Calculations: Will you be doing any intense calculations or media encoding?
video format conversions
Overclocking: Do you plan on overclocking and if so, how much?
i don't know, i have have a good enough computer to do it (don't know how)
Storage: How much storage will you need and what will you be storing?
i already have several external tb's, so i'm looking for a board which can support multiple high capacity internal hard drives
Legacy Support: Will you need support for older hardware like parallel, serial, or PS/2 devices?
Operating System: Do you want Windows XP or Vista, or Linux compatibility?
starting with windows 7, may move to linux in the future
Case: Do you want help selecting a case and if so, how big do you want it?
size of case isn't very important to me, as long as it's a good match for the setup
Accessories: Do you want a keyboard, mouse, or other items included?
i should be good, i've already found the perfect mouse and keyboard
Recycled Components: Will you be reusing any components you already have?
nope, all new
Monitor: If you want a monitor, what size do you want and should it be widescreen?
whatever monitors are suggested for eyefinity (affordably) i'm looking at the setup to have 3 identical monitors - and i will use my TV occasionally as another screen
Stores: Do you have any online stores that you prefer to purchase from?
newegg and any reliable ones suggested
Location: What country do you live in?
united states of america
Thank you in advance for any help or advice
i'm very excited for this future build, since it will be my first.
