April 2012 Video/Gaming PC

This PC is designed for 2 key tasks, video editing and gaming.  The budget was $900, and yes we met the budget.  Typically, gaming computer already have enough power to do video editing, the only big difference or change I will make is to double the RAM to 16GB, this will make the difference here.

For a bit of a change, I've decided to build this on a Gigabyte board, a little bit of cost saving when dealing with a tight budget, this let me stick a bit more onto the video card.
