What about a 2600k with Z68? Doesnt Z68 have a utility that can use quick-sync that he could benefit from greatly?

To my knowledge the advantage of the Z68 chipset has four improvements.

SSD Caching
Identity Protection Capability
GPU (2500k or 2600k) Overclocking
GPU (2500k or 2600k) Switching with GPU Card.

When do you think you'll have enough money to finish the build? One thing you could do is buy the CPU, mobo, and GPU last. I believe the 990x replacement is supposed to be out in Q4, so it could be worth waiting it out. Kepler is also supposed to come out this year too. If you're going to be waiting until at least September, it might be worth waiting a bit more to get the newest tech

Thanks

the mobo i have picked out is the asus rampage 3 mainly due to power management stuff.

i don't think the quick sync of the z68 would be noticed much by me, since my usage would be quite heavy about 99% of the time, in terms of the gpu.

I don't think the Rampage III is the same chipset as the 2600k. You would have to change to the Rampage IV

Honestly I see it as an ongoing project because I'm about to hit up masters or law school or something and one of those is going to punch my wallet in the face for a long time.

By september I should have just over 3k to spill on the computer. My problem with waiting for new tech is that it will push my budget up and I'm not really concerned with having the newest stuff; from what I've found, the 980x has been put through a crazy amount of testing and has performed very well across the board. I'm not the type to want to constantly upgrade his PC, I just want a very strong workhorse for chugging through 1080p encodes.

If you're not going to have the money until September, wait until September. Do not spread a build out like that. I did myself, but the first things I got were the case/PSU, so if you only count the platform parts (motherboard/CPU/RAM/video card), I only spread it out over a month and a half, but don't do it over four or five months.

Also, Extreme Edition and price/performance do not belong in the same sentence. You're mistaken to that CPU has a good ratio. If you're concerned about that, Sandy Bridge is your CPU. It is close enough in encoding, and alot better in the other areas, all while being far cheaper and newer. For longevity, it also behooves you to get the older platform.

The answer is simple. Buy in September, and by then, you'll also know what Bulldozer is like and stuff will likely be cheaper. Wait.

Rampage IV???

As far as I know, without going into different territory, the rampage 3 extreme BE is the best of the best that they offer right now.
