    Can I get some feedback on building a new editing PC ?


      Before I attempt to communicate my situation, I want to say how much I appreciate the information so many people have contributed to this sight. knowledge is empowering, so thank you, thank you, thank you. I am trying to get back into digital film work full time. My current system is, at best, obsolete, and so, for financial reasons, I am trying to build a viable system capable of working with HD video, etc. I have about 2500.00 to work with and after spending an insane amount of time and energy, spinning my technically challenged wheels, trying to get good information in choosing the right system components, here is some of what I was thinking:


      CPU:               Intel i7 4930

      Cooler:            Corsair Hydro H50

      MOBO:            Asus P9X79 Pro

      OS:                  Win 7 pro64 bit

      Memory:         16 GB RipJaw Z DDR3 1866

      GPU:               Nvidia GTX 770 2Gig

      Blue Ray:        Pioneer RBDR 208

      Power:            Corsair Pro AX1200i

      System drive: 2GB Seagate  Barracuda XT 7200

      Media Drives: 2X3GB Seagate Barracuda XT 7200 ( Raid 0)

      Case:              Antec Nine Hundred Mid Tower


      Not sure about a raid controller card.
