Hey I am looking to build my first PC and was need help putting a list together I am want to spend about $1200. I am a video editor by trade so I will need to be able to bring things home to work on and edit (16GB should be fine). I won't need a HDD as I have plenty of 1 TB drives lying around my house. I am also wanting to use this as a gaming rig to play different games on for example Overwatch Fallout 4 and League of Legends. With the rig I will be needing to look at a good keyboard and mouse. I already have a 27" 1080p IPS monitor but if you think I would need a different one for gaming I am open to suggestions. As far as OS I already have windows install disk so I shouldn't need that. If you have any question, I will be happy to answer. To be honest I feel a little out of my depth.

TL;DR Budget: ~$1200 (no HDD needed) Location: US Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): Gaming and Video Editing Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc):Keyboard and mouse (taking suggestions on monitors) Operating System required: Have Windows 7 disk to install

Any size preferences? And I hope you didn't buy anything from anyone's suggestions.

I haven't bought anything yet. I can do what on size but if it saves money to go smaller or larger I would lean that way.

Thanks for the quick reply I forgot to mention that I don't need a HDD I have 2 1 TB drives and 1 4 TB drive. I don't know if that would change things for the build. I think I can actually get away with cutting back the RAM to 16 GB is that help give you flexibility on the other components.

Is there are reason that you opted for the Mini ATX vs a larger tower option?

The build looks cool. Do I need a CPU cooler with a locked CPU since it won't be overclocking?

Even without overclocking, the i7 can get pretty hot. you should get a cooler.
