Try the FT02 for your case. Probably the best case you can buy imo.

...and it looks Awesome, but I think the 650D is comparable (looks wise) and a chunk less cash.

And yeah, you could go get your 3930K tomorrow for ~$530 with tax. Link

seriously? 32 GB yea follow this tho i wuda suggested a Rampage 4 Formula. Its jsut like the extreme version but with 4 less DIMM slots. I wud go against getting an Asus board anyways. Their RMA service is rely crappy. Take a look at this thread:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1248986/asus-rma-unacceptable-and-appalling
Asus has started to get sloppy lol. Yea i wud take the Extreme 6 motherboard. It is pretty good IMO.
I wud get these for RAM : G.Skill Ares 16gb(4X4) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231545
and also hyper 212 does not support 2011. Not that I wud suggest it for such a high-end processor. I wud suggest Thermalright Silver Arrow for air or the Corsair H80 for closed loop water.

I know this is the internet an everyone likes to short hand, however, the word would does not need to be spelled wud.

Another note, have you had to RMA anything with Asus? I mean maybe they dropped the ball on that RMA? I have had bad a experiance with Newegg shipping parts, do I tell everyone to stay away? No.

The Rampage IV series boards are great, do not listen to someone that does not even own one.

I'd say 3930k for sure! NH-D14 or similar. Don't get a closed loop water system, the NH-D14 is better and it's also quieter! thumb.gif

Crucial M4 128GB for the SSD (maybe a 256GB?)

Get a 7,200RPM Terabyte for games and such, (if you don't put them on the SSD). And a 2-3TB Green for music/movies and such.

G-Skill for the RAM, Corsair used to be top notch but it's just not anymore. 32GB would be nice so get that in 8GB sticks?

I don't follow up much on socket 2011, but AsRock make some nice boards for the money, seeing as you have a moderate budget you could get a nicer board however. Just don't go Gigabyte, they used to be top notch once again and have just slipped.

As for the cards, you could do Tri 7950's and spend that bit more? Maybe Dual 7950's. Because remember you can overclock them thumb.gif
As for the 680 if you watercool with a custom loop (which at this budget fits right in). The 7950's/7970's will do be single slot compared to dual slot 680's.

If you're going to watercool i'd suggest getting 2x full plated blocks for the cards, just be sure to get Reference models as the non-reference won't allow you to fit these blocks most likely. There are some nice XSPC kits to start off with watercooling if you're going to cool your cards with water, then you can just add an extra radiator and blocks.

You'll want a nice fan controller also, I wouldn't spend over $40 or so myself. As for the case the sort of stuff to put this all in is a Antec 1200, HAF 932, DF-85, FT02, Cosmos II, Cosair 800D,

You really want a full tower case, when i got my full tower i was so happy to build with it. Building/maintaining friends DF-35's and CM690 II are horrible.
That being said if the case doesn't come with dust filters i'd suggest to get some of them also!

Hope that helps! smile.gif

EDIT: With the price on the H80 you'd be better off spending $20 or so more and getting a H100..

not bad, but x79 is overkill for gaming and is probably too much for video editing, too. i think a 2600k/2700k with 680's in sli would get you identical real-world performance while saving quite a bit of money.

...especially with the crazy deals at Microcenter. Also, I'd just get the 1 680 and see how that treated me before I spent the $500 additional for a second 680. That'd free up some budget for a soundcard and some very solid headphones (or whatever).

I didn't expect the 212 would get much love for this build, it was the last component I priced though and it fit what budget was left available. smile.gif

Microcenter has been running deals with the 2600k's on sale plus a combo deal for another $50 off a compatible motherboard (or something). You might end up with something like the 2600K/ASRock Z77 Extreme4 for ~$400 with tax. Who knows when that sale will come back around but but you're not building right away and the sale seems to happen pretty regularly and the would save you $400 for other things, like a bluray writer that'd probably look awesome on a higher res Monitor that you expect to end up with.

You're right, but he has the budget. Video editing programs love more cores though, same with photoshop and the likes. You may want to stick to a Single card, but again if he's going to be gaming and has the money why not? Especially if you're running on such a high res. In that case a 3GB 7970 would be better then a 2GB 680, then again a 4GB 680...

With his socket 2011 it allows for more ram and 6 core processors, it's the enthusiast level socket.
