Hey all, first time posting and new member here. I have a friend that introduced me to this site and now my headache has grown now that I have that many more options. My son wants a gaming rig and I would like to do some light editing with Sony Vegas. We have stumbled across cyberpower and Ibuypower. The latter has the z97 with ok specs but I would like the i7 4790k for editing and over locking if needed. We are on a very tight budget after Christmas so I need to stay under $1000.00. I do have 2 friends that can help me with a build. They have done several builds but their free time doesn't allow me to pick their brains as much as I need. Can someone give me a reason to stay away from this prebuilt? Could I build a better one for the same amount? Here is a link (hope it's allowed) to the z97. http://www.ibuypower.com/Store/Winter-Special-Intel-Z97-i5
Again, I am new to this site so feel free to blast me, move this post or guide me in any way to make the best choice in building vs buying. Thanks again. Rob.
