I can fully vouch for the performance of SB though, and its overclocking potential. Cheers.
PS: for video editing try to opt for a 2600K (because of HT) and go lower on costs in other places, again, that's just me.

are you talking of my build, the i7 3820 can be overclock.... not that as far & easy as K & X brothers, but it can be overclocked. It is not necessary to get 5ghz+ for an overclock, a stable 4~4.+ is good enough for application. for moneys worth if his getting now the 2011 platform & purpose of the rig make sense.

TS rig build is not a video editing rig its a gaming rig with overkill psu case & a wrong videocard which will not benefit the productivity use of the pc...

Yes, I'm sorry, the 3820 can be overclocked... sry. and like the description said: "The main purpose of the rig is mainly general use with video editing(helmet cam footage)" so I guess thread / core count does matter...

I see your point about future upgrade-ability which is something for me to atleast consider since I usualy keep rigs for years(still have my first Athlon 3000+ rig doing work for my parents tongue.gif). But I may have overstated my 'video editing', my fault, before my laptop died I was doing work on that, and it handled it, alright with a mobile i5 sandy and 8 gigs of ram. Its just me editing my buddys gopro and contour helmet cams not cinema quality video lachen.gif Oh and not that I dont trust you but Im an ATi fanboy(or have been) so as far as cards go, how is that 450 going to hold up in say BF3(probably only PC game Ill play), not shooting for maxed out settings and resolutions but decent mediumish would be nice.

Guess I should rename the thread title to something a little more ambiguous haha

Which is one reason I was going to opt for the i5 K edition. 90% of the time the rig will just be used for web browsing so that extra power seems unnecessary. I know my case was a bit much but aesthetics are part of the build process! thumb.gif

I do have time before my build is complete, its in theory going to end with the release of the new cpus, so I can wait on buying a motherboard untill more reviews and information is released. Its possible I could get an i7 but thats a stretch.



I dont think i was clear though on my intended use of this machine, again my fault. Before I started this I was using a laptop I had bought, core i5 yaya, it ran fine with video editing as far as I needed it(Im using overkill software to essentially create youtube videos). My biggest gripe however was the friggen thing would reach 90C+ while rendering, not to mention idiling near 60C, I just wasnt impressed with it so I decided I needed a new desktop. My hope was to build a decent rig that could play BF3 on medium to high settings, and edit my 'gopro' footage without attempting to melt the cover of the case. I know its most likely going to go beyond 1k but that was baseline(I dont mind working more for better stuff thumb.gif) Im going to post a build log soon so Ill edit a link into here. Keep the suggestions coming and thanks!

^ better change your purpose of the rig as stated in your first post...

if gaming then corei5 3570K is the way to go + z77 motherboard for newer builds but your case dwarf your components,

in rig building your case should be the last to get the budget, you will have better gaming performance if you have a high end cpu + videocard, than spending your money on the case that just sit under the table of your room, unless you parade your case on competitions.

So far Ive come up with a basic list of what I need, just need some help tweaking it.
Case: NZXT Switch 810
PSU: Seasonic XSeries 650watt Gold
GPU: Sapphire HD 7770
RAM: Mushkin Blackline 2X4gb
CPU Cooling: Phanteks or something similar
CPU: Core i5 3570k
SSD: OCZ Vertex 3 120gb(already have)
However, the motherboard I cant decide yet to either stick with a Z68 right now, which will be presumably cheaper than the new chipset when theyre released; or bite the bullet and pick up the latest and greatest. I do plan on some overclocking so that might have an effect on what I have to purchase.
Overall my budget is going to be around ~1k on components, but if I can get below that then great. Ill be mainly using NewEgg and Frys because I can pick it up locally. Any input/suggestions are appreciated.

LOL your saying now its a gaming rig you want then what the hell you mentioned there general use is video editing and I dont game like I used to...

ur build is good just the switch 810 takes up about 15% of your budget NOPE not good there. For a $1000 budget I would only suggest a $100 case. If u can find a Switch 810 for a $100 kudos for you but like others have said, case should be last on your mind with the main components being top priority and also phanteks kinda overkill no? I think u cud live on a hypere 212+ or an Enermax ETS-t40. Both are rely good and relatively cheaper. Great for biggest bang for buck

^^^^^
THIS dude u need the rig for gaming and video editing then 26ooK would still be my call what do you guys think if the op is going to game and do video editing the 2600K cool ?? i think everyone was a different point of view so lets see what others have to say then wink.gif
post #18 of 19
If video editing is more of a hobby than a long-term investment, get the i5-3570k.

Alright guys, I edited the title, hopefully it seems a little more appropriate. I was hoping to stay out of the details of the build and save that for the log, which is why I just needed to know if everything would coalesce nicely. It wasnt inteded to be cheap or have a hard cap of 1k, I was dabbling with the idea of entry level watercooling via xspc kit, which is why I have more money set aside for cooling if need be. The case is expensive because aesthetics are part of this build, that and my hands are to big to work in small cases. Im still loving all the other ideas though.
