Thanks, I also like to edit videos and put them onto YouTube. Would that setup be good for that too? I may eventually get into streaming Xbox 360 games live or capturing video from my 360 as well. Also other than Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3, the only other game I have interest in playing right now is Team Fortress 2.
It should work well for that as well. Going with a quad-core processor instead of the dual-core in your initial plan will help quite a bit with video editing and encoding.
What graphic card in the 100 to 200 range would recommend for an system running an q6600 quad core 2.4ghz and 8 gigs of memory with windows 7?
I'm looking for the top or mid one that would not slow down due to the older processor.
Is the radeon hd5770 good or would you recommend another card?
The 5770 at $150 is about the best value you're going to find right now in that range. You can get a 5830 for ~$200 after mail-in rebates if you want, but the performance difference between that and the 5770 really isn't great enough to justify the price jump.
