If that, is in fact the case, you are going to need a lot more than $500. And please keep in mind, there is no such thing as "future proof". We can help you put together a system that will be technology sound for about 4-5 years max for around $2k. Of course it's expensive, you're building a gaming rig.

You don't need more than 4 slots. Period. At most you could conceivably need is 16gb of memory. And that is if you are doing serious video editing. Look at my system specs in my spec tab. I play BF3 on Ultra settings with 1080p resolution and get 60fps. My build cost me about $1800.

Yes, that is a good start. Later on you can upgrade your processor to an i7 as well.

lol, well, that's a loaded question. Do you know how to assemble everything? Also, you need to order some ArticSilver to reseat the cpu into the new motherboard Newegg.com - Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound - Thermal Compound / Grease
