    Hey everyone,
    I came to this site for this specific question that I had, and seeing as this is my first post please excuse me if I posted this thread on the wrong board or section.
    I've been into console gaming for a while (this isn't a gaming thread just bear with me) and have recently decided to move into PC gaming. I have a few questions though if anyone would be willing to answer them.
    Can anyone give me advice on how to build/buy/customize a computer that can not only accomplish all the tasks I need listed below, but excel at them. I honestly don't know where to start with this process.

    • Run intensive games such as Arma, DayZ, RuneScape, Grand Theft Auto 5
    • Run video editing software such as iMovie or Sony Vegas
    • Record and stream gameplay and others functions so that they may be uploaded or edited

    I'd also like to mention that while price is a factor, it is definitely not a large limiting factor to the computer I'd like to purchase/build.

    I hope I included enough information, and if I didn't please just respond and I'll tell you any other information you may need to help me.

    If price is not a huge factor I would go with a core i7-5820k build. With that you get ddr4 ram, and the newer x99 chipset.

    According to benchmarks the 5820k's six core should be able to handle video editing and streaming without a sweat. Paired with a gtx 970 or gtx 980 or even gtx 960 this build should be able to take everything you can throw at it.

    EDIT: Of course this would run you at $ 1200-$2000.
