Moving towards Christmas, I think now is a good time to start planning on buying a new computer. I had to give my dad my old computer so that he could use it for his work. I am currently running a P4 + HD5770 and for some reason, I just feel that there is a huge bottleneck in terms of old performance on a Phenom II x2 and now compared to the P4. Here's what I thought of so far: CPU: i5 2500k Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 GPU: [unsure] PSU: Corsair HX750 Case: NZXT Phantom I may or may not get a new GPU seeing as the HD5770 shouldn't provide any issues with the processor I chose. In addition to that, hard drives aren't an issue either. I just need a core computer w/o things such as harddrives, the monitor etc. Main use is video + photo editing . I don't really play games as much as I used to, but I still play games as well. Will run 2 monitors , both at 1920x1080 . Budget is $800. I am willing to change some parts to fit the budget if needed. Also, while I am on the topic of investing on things, I need to buy new headphones. I looked at the Sennheiser HD448, and they look appealing to me mainly because of the simple design. No need for headsets since I just use a headset + mic combo. Any other suggestions in terms of headphones? Budget is $150 max.
