    New Build Help Plz.. Harm? Scott? Anyone lol?

    smd0605 Level 1

      First thank you tahnk you so so much for taking your time to help me!! Any help plz plz? This is be my first time, I but know alot about it so feel free to talk down to me but not to harsh lol I need this system to last and or able to upgrade down the way!

       

      I have been looking and looking, reading and reading and there is just so much info and everyone says something different. I been using a laptop that i got from bestbuy (HP, vista, 4GB ram,.......... very basic) premiere and after effects runs on my laptop, well after effects runs ok but premiere opens but forget about using it lol and in after effects just previewing any heavy effects takes forever FOREVER lol (even in 1/4 quality), just to render out a 15sec avi took 1hr 30mins! Ok so I have been saving up forever to build my own desktop. I'm trying not to go over ~$2500, took do $3000 but I would really like to use the other ~$500 for a screen!! Just not trying to go over $3000 for it all! I need this system to last a few years and\or able to upgrade down the way! It would take years to save this kind of money again im not rich at all so i need to get this right lol....

       

      Gonna be using premiere, after effects, and photoshop

      want to be able to use heavy effects

      My cam records in AVCHD if that matters any

       

       

      The Blue is what as of right now I'm going with but I have listed others that may better? If there is even something else I should go with plz feel free to list it

       

      Should I go with a Intel X58 or P67?

      I saw on videoguys blog  that they Do Not Recommended Sandy Bridge, Should I follow that?

       

      Intel i7-970 or intel i7-2600k (Is that sandy Bridge)?

       

      GeForce GTX 580 or Quadro 4000?

       

      I was really thinking 24GB RAM but if thats over doing it right now and I could spend the money somewhere else better right now then I'm up for that, as long as I could easily upgrade to 24GB ram later down the line without having to get a whole new system again.....

       

       

      The Following is what I came up with. What should I change if anything?
