    New PC just for Adobe Premiere Pro


      Hello all, I've decided against the iMac for a PC. It will only be used for video editing and some school work, not gaming. I've never built a computer and have little knowledge so I would appreciate all the help I can get.


      This is the computer that I've been suggested with a budget of $1200 (before tax) including a LCD.


      CPU: Intel Core i7 2600 - $300

      Mainboard: MSI P67A-GD65 - $170

      RAM: 4G x 2 - $56

      HD: 1 TB WD - $55

      Case with 500W power supply
      Thermaltake V9 BlaX Edition HDD Docking Stations, 600W power supply - $150

      Video Card: EVGA Geforce GTX570 - $300

      Total: $1031 + LG 24' LCD $170 = $1201


      Does this computer bring out the best of Premiere Pro? (MPE, etc)

      Am I missing anything else?

      As I have little idea, I don't know whether the prices are correct.

      How should I improve the build, whether it be because it's inferior or there are better prices. Is that a good case?

      My budget is $1200 but I'm definitely willing to go over that if you guys have suggestions on what I should change or any advice, etc.
