    Hey guys i am thinking about doing an Intel build with an i5 2500k 650watt psu(corsair tx) and 8gbs of corsair Vengance Ram. What would you guys recommend for a video card not looking to spend a ton but would like to get a decent card for this build as I will be doing some video editing and recording game play.

    What ssd would you recommend for a lower cost model(with hdd being so pricey thinking ill get a smaller ssd for now)

    What is your budget for the computer, not including an operating system or any peripherals? How many gigs of storage space do you actually need? Video editing eats it up.

    Are you planning on reusing anything out of your current build? Looks like the PSU would be an excellent choice, and with prices, I'd recommend you reuse the hard drive. What does it have for a video card?

    Can you be a bit more specific? Please list which components you need for your $500.

    I need even more clarification, please - do you have ANY conventional hard drive that you can reuse? What about an optical drive?

    Please help me out here so I can properly help you.
