Default Advice needed.

Hello everyone,

This forum has been very helpful to me and now I need some advice. I've been researching for a couple of month now, on which parts I should use for my first build. All I do is surf the web, edit photos w/CS3, eventually going to buy PC games, and going to start editing video for my church (don't know which editing software we are going to buy yet) My budget is about $1,200. Please let me know if this parts that I've chosen sound good.

-EVGA X58 SLI LGA 1366 X58 ATX Motherboard

-Intel Corporation Core i7 920 Processor Boxed

-Corsair TX750W 750 Watt ATX 12V Power Supply

-OCZ Technology 4GB DDR3-1600 (PC-12800) Gold Low Voltage CL8 Memory Kit

-Western Digital Bulk Drives WD Caviar Green WD10EADS 1TB IntelliPower SATA

-Visiontek Radeon HD 5750 1GB GDDR5 PCIe 2.0 x16 Graphics Card
(later I will buy another one)

-Cooler Master HAF932 High Air Flow Full Tower

-Cooler Master V8 Universal CPU Cooler


I also forgot to mention that I'm going to buy all the parts from Micro Center b/c some of there parts are cheaper then Newegg & tiger Direct ( example, i7 920 goes for $200 @ Micro Center)

This computer is what I and Computers for Dummies call the "Wayne Manor Batcomputer". This will help all your needs, dont worry. Dont forget to get 3gb ram

You are such a good friend that if you and me were the last two people trapped on a sinking boat with only 1 life vest left, i would remember and pray for you every day.
Funny how Communism is so bad in Politics but so good with software!
My reputation is in the Red, so why doesnt it say "ohm55 needs rehab" when I put my mouse over it?

Yea. You don't want 4GB RAM with a X58 chipset mobo.

Either 3 X 1 GB or (3 X 2 GB - With Windows 7 64 bit.)
Lenovo ThinkPad T410 - i7 620M - 8GB RAM - Crucial M4 120GB SSD - 250GB 2nd drive - Intel HD 3000 GPU - 1440x900 - Windows 7/8
