I've been working on finalizing the specs for my system over a week and thank everyone who helped me take some good decisions. Unfortunately, there're couple of things I'm yet to zero-in.

Purpose of system: Running CPU intensive applications with 8-12GB hash (day-time), Video editing and also gaming (non-production hours).

Budget: £1200 (without Monitor, OS, K/B, Mouse, speakers and 2nd hard drive)

Planning to overclock upto 4.2 / 4.6GHz.

Please also advice me if we do overclocking, would it void warranty?
