Build https://pricespy.co....l=194029&view=l

 

Will mainly be use for Gaming and unprofessional Photo and video editing

Budget capped at $1500

 

PSU: already have it from a previous build so I cant don't want too get a new one

Case: Needs to be Silent, I also love how I can change the dust filter without turn the whole case around.

Ram: a lot helps with video and image editing.

CPU: will be overclocking to 4.6Ghz, looks like a easy to get overclock

CPU-cooler: If I don't have to use a water cooler, I would prefer a fan cooler.

HDD/SSD: I will take more space but still want the speed of a SSD

Mobo: I don't know as long as It can overclock the CPU

GPU: already have a GTX 970 TI

 

Also the case will be under a desk in the corner against a wall,

If you are gonna overclock the CPU then I suggest you get a water-cooler as I doubt an air-cooler will be sufficient.

The air cooler will be fine for overclocking. Unless you want the aesthetic benefit of an AIO water cooler, an air cooler will be better bang for buck.

Looks great, but you can probably knock nearly $100 off the mobo.

 

Seeing you've already got the PSU, does it need to be included in the budget?

If you shave off on motherboard and power supply you could fit a 1TB SSD such as https://pricespy.co....t.php?p=2800346

I have remove the PSU from the price.

What motherboard did you have in mind

That price for a 1TB SSD terrifies me, and only "3 Years Manufacturer warranty" is not helping

None in particular. https://pricespy.co....t.php?p=3268387 would be an option, or https://pricespy.co....t.php?p=3266705 if you don't like Gigabyte. And there are several that are only listed by Techworld, but all but one is of unspecified stock status.

 

If you want more SSD space, then I suggest you get a second drive. Whether you use RAID or two drives is up to you... But honestly, with a 500 GB drive I wouldn't bother with any more SSD space, and would instead get a decent HDD if you need it. HDDs are perfectly adequate for photo and video, because that is almost totally sequential access, which HDDs are pretty good at.
