Trying to keep it as close to 500 as possible. Already have storage drives, and roms so not needed.
Before i spend the money, I wanted some advice if you think this would be enough to do some light to moderate, quality video production. Will be running programs like camtasia studio,after effects, and video encoding. Would like to add a dedicated video card in the future if it demands, but was wondering if this would do the job. Here's what I came up with real quick as far as parts go.
