  1. Don't need the K CPU if your not going to overclock just grab the non K version.
    Get 16GB for multimedia or other related work. For HDD get either Seagate or Western Digital
    Use micro ATX for expandability. mini ITX isn't suitable for your needs. For the case, check out Corsair 350D, BitFenix Prodigy M,
    AeroCool DS Cube, or Cooler Master N200
  2. can you send me the pcpart picker link. I think i can make this better.

    Then you don't need the 4790k. Just use a Xeon 1230 instead eg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117316


    And you'll want more and faster ram eg 2 x 8gb 2400

    And you'll want a good graphics card to help with hardware acceleration

    And you should get a better quality power supply =- from tiers 1, 2a or 2b of http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1804779/power-supply-unit-tier-list.html
  4. nvm i got it
  5. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/vbGmmG

    I highly recommend using a dedicated video card. its $100 more than u wanted.
