I'm looking to build a computer that will edit video/photo and used for dvd duplication. I don't care about gaming and I'm not concered about overclocking. I just want a computer that works well for these processes. Any help would be greatly appeciated. Thank you!!

You should wait until late july to buy because you can save a lot of money on your processor and some other parts.

yea $1416 befor erebates and s&h you could also go a lil' cheaper on the case, and get some speakers if you'd like. Easy way ta blow $1,500 , that's crazy.
And for a PSU, you probably don't need a $70 one, so here's 2 that are a bit cheaper yet still quality PSU's from what I know..
HIPRO 500w
ePower ZU 500w

I like the Hipro too. but there's something about that masscool/sytrin psu that has really caught my eye. johnnyguru loved it for it's efficiency, active pfc, and solid, stable voltages.

I chose the lian li case because it's all aluminum and it comes with 2 120mm fans.

but, I'd also recommend

coolermaster cavalier 3
chen ming 601

i could build that system for less than $600.

75gb of storage?? you're joking right?

and why just two motherboard choices? your shop sells prebuilt systems with asus motherboards too.

what makes buffalo memory better?
