Compatible?

RE: Compatible?
tier 1 is aimed for gaming at lower resolutions like 1680x1050. Tier 2 is more aimed for 1920x1080 (1080p) gaming. The best thing to do is find out with tier fits your price and performance needs.

Will the parts you linked me to help improve my video editing capability compared to what I had listed?

RE: Compatible?
Video editing is mainly about RAM and processor power. Large editing projects benefit from more RAM, while a workhorse CPU gets the data worked out... If you want to be more editable, upgrade your RAM to maybe a 2x8GB kit, and go for a better processor...

RE: Compatible?
Since the AMD Processor has 4 cores I would imagine its better suited for video editing.

I personally don't know enough about video editing, maybe someone else will chime in.

Is the processor that Brandonsr linked (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002SRQ214) good enough? and ok I will upgrade the RAM amount too.

RE: Compatible?
Honestly I'm probably not much better informed, if at all, than Brandonsr, I've just been doing a little research for a friend recently. That said, from what I understand, the hard spot you find yourself in is that you want to power to edit video (which for lower-level systems basically means you bump the CPU and RAM but sacrifice on the GPU) while you also want to be able to play games (for which you would bump the GPU and sacrifice a little on the other two). If you can save up a little, I'd go hybrid, basically a mix of a Tier 2 and 3 gaming build with extra RAM, which should provide enough of both:

i5-3570k ($210 - Amazon)
ASRock Z75 Pro3 LGA 1155 ($85 - Newegg)
GSkill Ripjaws X Series 16 GB (2x8 GB) or Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) (Around $115)
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SUPERCLOCKED 2048MB ($205 - Amazon)
WD 1 TB Blue HDD ($67 Amazon)
Rosewill HIVE 650W 80+ Bronze ($80 - Amazon)
DVD Burner - $25
Your case - $45
CM Hyper 212 Evo ($28 - Amazon)

Total: $860...ish

If that's too rich for your blood, I'd go with a modified Tier 2 that has the mobo listed here and the larger RAM, which comes to around $670... A bit over your budget, but that's where I'd aim. You'll want a mobo with 4 ram slots if you want to expand in the future.

I'm getting tired, so that may be a bit off, but hope it helps at least some Smile

Good luck!

Oh, and the Phenom used to be on the budget workstation page apparently, so it's an option, but that was a while ago... Keep in mind if you do decide to that route, you'll need an AM3 motherboard.... I think Brandonsr linked an FM2 mobo, which isn't compatible with the AM3 Phenom...
