Contact CyberDruid (Just realized you're not in the states, sorry), I'm sure that he'd build you one helluva, one-of-a-kind, custom mod, along with some great components for that price. smile.gif

This will do nicely, I didn't throw in audiophile sound equipment because i figured most people would consider it wasteful tongue.gif

Agreed, not including all the WC stuff, I so far have spent roughly 3500 (see sig rig)

I could go along with a 2700K, and 2 570's if the OP wanted to go custom WC, he could still do that under 3500 imo

since IB is right around the corner might want to consider that, and maybe get 2 SSD's in Raid 0?

with 3400 you can buy some good hardware, might even be able to get away with a nice 27" Monitor in the end.

my suggestion is the following

CPU: SB-E 3930K $600
MB: R4E $450
RAM: Corsair GTX Dominator 16GB 2133MHz $190
GPU: GTX 680 (single) ~$600 - correct me if I'm wrong on price (you can always get another later)
PSU Corsair AX850 $190
HDD/SSD: Corsair 256GB $350
Case: I like the suggestion of the 600T $160 - would be perfect for an H80 or something to the nature
Keyboard: I like the Razer Mechanical Keyboard, but you can get a G15 (used for really cheap!) I bought mine for $15 wink.gif
Mouse: you can have mine! but i am partial to Steel Series

Total (not including KB / Mouse) $2540 with plenty left over!

you could get a really nice monitor, or another GPU with extra still left over.



I would agree with this, might look at the Ducky Shine (rather than Black Widow) as well, looks really good at a good price. Would probably be ok with a 128 GB SSD.

The price difference between 1600 Mhz and 2133Mhz RAM usually doesn't make sense. Could pick up 32 GB (8x 4 GB for about the same price)

Would also recommend the 500R and getting an H100 and put it in the space on top.

You'd have to be crazy to dump that kind of money into a rig all at one time. Your machine will be out of date in 2 years, and become a $3400 paper weight. Don't even bother with Sandy Bridge-E your not going to see a single FPS more with it over Sandy Bridge. I'd wait to see what Intel has to offer with Ivy Bridge next month. If its not than a 2600k should be just over $280 by then. I'd pick one of them up, a Z77 board, and a NH-D14 and overclock it to 4.5Ghz. It will chew up whatever you have to throw at it. No reason spending twice as much for a processor that might render your videos a minute or two faster, that's just ridiculous.

Just ignore "certain" individual(s), that are only attempting to troll. not worth the time to even read. biggrin.gif

Back on subject though...

Wait for the Rev 2 of the SB-E to come out, I'm not even sure you can get a 3930K right now? - haven't looked though.

As for your CPU Cooler question, I am partial to AP-15's and Xigmatek XAF 1253 for my build. fans will be dependent on what your friend likes, and want type of performance you want to get from them.
AP-15's imo are mainly used for WC, because of the great static pressure they give.
Xigmatek, are my "eye candy" fans, my suggestion research; is your friend looking for eye candy, and/or performance? what type of color scheme is he wanting to do? - make it match.

tbh there is a HUGE selection of fans and it will truthfully come down to personal opinion.

SSD question: I'm partial to Corsair, (if you haven't guessed that already tongue.gif) research on newegg, read the customer reviews, look at the read/write/sequential specs. when talking about SSD's 500MB/s for the previous specs, are very good and in most cases typical.

Monitor: I am currently in the market for 120Hz Monitor, I had my eye on http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=24-009-300&SortField=0&SummaryType=0&Pagesize=10&PurchaseMark=&SelectedRating=-1&VideoOnlyMark=False&VendorMark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&Page=2#scrollFullInfo]

however the way Samsung is going it would most certainly behoove you to look at some of their top end models.

Freq: difference between 1600MHz and 2133Mhz, I'll just give you the short answer to that, and let you research the rest biggrin.gif...
Short Answer, when having a higher RAM Freq, you can essentially overclock your components more so, as compared to a lower freq. you'll find out more about that once you start overclocking more and more, but your in the right place!

Links to what i posted earlier...
MB: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131802 -price reduced
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233230 -price increased! - i paid 189 a month or so ago rolleyes.gif
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139015

Or you could ditch one 7970 (ive heard games dont scale well on 4gpus anyway) and pick up a nicer case, another hard drive, better/more ram, etc.
