$1500 Intel Gaming/Video edit rig - Page 3

post #21 of 30
i would go with the 3820 for what your doing, it gives you an option to upgrade to sandy/ivy bridge-e 6 and (hopefully) 8 core procs in the future. the boards arnt that much more, there are good 2011 boards in the $250 level

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone! I think I will avoid the 2011 socket and stick with the 2600K cpu. That Antec Kuhler Water cooling kit looks pretty appealing, especially since it's priced so close to high end aftermarket air coolers. Is it really that much better at cooling as compared to air cooling? Also, I always thought that having 4 separate channels (4x4) was more efficient than having 2(2x8) sticks. From what I'm reading the new 680GTX really is priced well for its performance and doesn't carry the *biggest baddest e-peen* premium price tag?

Also, a lot of people have been referring me to the ASUS Pro z68 board, what advantages does it have compared to the deluxe/basic/ asrock boards?

Thanks everyone!

great thought there buddy i really m looking forward for the socket 1155
secondly having a 16GB is a overkill 8GB would be efficient enough and have all 4 Slots occupied has its advantages and disadvantages when it comes to overclock them
third as for the cooler if you are really wanting the best bang for your bang i would suggest you a air cooler like NZXT Havik which is for 60$ approx. same price as that H20620 redface.gif
i may give it a try tomorrow as it quiet late here in my country (2.30 am in the night ) want to have some sleep anyways

16gb is overkill for most people. Some tend to use alot (i do) but most could get by with 4-6. If you get 8 in two four gb sticks you keep both channals running and have the option to upgrade to 16gb later

I'm actually going to oppose this, 16GB should be a standard for video editing, go with it. You would benefit alot more from more ram than overclocking 8GB.
