Ugh, nVidia chipset. nVidia doesn't even make AMD chipsets anymore. You're saving money sure, but... no idea how long nVidia will continue to release drivers for the board.

Updated it again, I probably found the best layout I could. This is the cheapest I can get while being able to run BFBC2 according to game-debate.

also, that PSU that comes with that case is only 300W,
4850s call for at least 450W minimum.

Default Can I save any money on this build?

Hi there, thought I would add my own PC build to this thread.
I am after advice on where I could save money.

USE: The computer is for my dad, he keeps asking for a computer where he can do video editing so I tried to put together a sort of multimedia capable system.
The limits of this video editing would not go past the basic vegas software, maybe some photoshoping and that's about it. More of a little hobby editing computer.

In saying that is there anything in this build that I can downgrade?

All these components I have found through MSY.com

CPU $199
Intel Core i5-655K 3.20Ghz LGA 1156 CPU without Fan
Motherboard $205
Gigabyte GA-P67A-UD4 P67 DDR3 Intel 1155pin
RAM $78Kingston DDR3 1600 HyperX Blue 4GB Kit(2Gx2) CL9
Graphics Card $95Inno3D “AGP” 512MB 7600GT
Power Supply $79
AeroCool E80-600 600Watt
Case $95
Thermaltake Armor A90 Without PSU
Hard Drive $96
WD 3.5” Black 1TB WD1002FAEX SATA3 7200rpm

Total : $847

If I need to give anymore information please let me know.
Thanks for having a look in advance any advice would be great.

Kind Regards,

Dave
