Hi there...

I'm starting to build my own pc specifically for video editing and gaming
thus far my specs are;

Processor: AMD Phenom II x6 1055T
Mobo: MSI MA770 C45
Primary HDD: WESTERN D VELOCIRAPTOR 150GB 16MB
Slave HDD: 1TB WD Green 64MB
RAM x2: DDR3 2GB 1333Mhz
Monitor: Samsung B2230H 21.5"
GPU: Sapphire HD 5770
PSU: SilverStone Strider 400W
Casing: 1) CM Scout
2) Thermaltake V5
3) NZXT Classic Gamma
(please comment on casing choice too ^^)

My dilemma now stands with mouse and keyboard my budget is RM200 for both not each...
Hope you guys can share a thought or two =))

For editing video, I'd recommend more RAM first! Two gigs is barely enough to run Windows comfortably.

Definitely agree with that!
Buy a cheapo KB/mouse for now.
