But in all seriousness I'd reccomend 16 gigs of SAMSUNG Wonderam, a RIVE, and a Switch 810.

Could not find the Samsung RAM in Aussie tongue.gif The fast ram will not do anything for gaming, but it will work wonders for editing. It should be highly recommended.

Also, the switch was already shot down, he does not want it doh.gif


@OP do you already have the i7 rig in your sig? why not keep that and make 2 rigs, one for gaming and one for editing? You will see much better success from that.

dude Gtx 670 with one of the best aftermarket cooler not refrence deisgn it cost 430$ so 2x 670 = 860$ how is that = 690 1k$ ? also that is not the way to compare, because the gtx 690 will out perform> 2x 670, check , the 3x 670 = 690 with maybe 10% more performance in some games not even all, some others 690 will win , i dont know how he find that 670 x 2 = 1k$ wow that is expensive for 670

2x gtx 680 is little better then 690 that coz of the 4gb memory

any way he want video editing , most important things SSD and processor for editing trust me it is important

SSD to edit the photo from it or the film or movie wt ever, it will give you the most boost

just get the film or photo's from the camera to your SSD and then edit it see the deference with normal HD omg just to import it to the software will take for ever

Now i will post the build i suggest biggrin.gif

all prices and links just for reference you can go find cheaper and find more expensive

Cpu: 3930k 590$
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116492

Motherboard: gigabyte G1 killer assassin 2 350$
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128533

Cpu cooler: you chose anything good value cheep and good and up gradable in case you want to go oc later on for example
Corsair H60 , but if you want oc later on you add one more fan push pull etc.. 65$
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181015
hyper evo 212 from cooler master same you add more fan later on, 35$
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099
i suggest one of these 2 will be enough

memory ( ram): 16GB 1600 mhz patriot 88$
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220636

Gpu: Asus Gtx 670 top edition , buy 2 put them in Sli 430$
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121638

Power supply: Antec 1000w 150$ , To be honest i rushed in choosing psu didn't look around
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371036

Case: Haf x 190$
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119225

in my idea chose hardware then case, so you chose case that fit what you buy, if you are low $$ or have certain budget otherwise just building crazy pc then go with best future proof case will fit water cooling kits etc also you like the look of it, biggrin.gif will stick with you for a while right?

rest spend as much as you can on SSD and HD and use SSD to cache if you cant afford many ssd for enough storage you need

Total so far without HD or SSD ,. ! = 2205$

these parts i chosen them based on reviews and specs not on my liking or look or fan crap.

feel free to change stuff in this list its just close to my pc am building still researching tho, coz have time till i get my $$ in oct lol maybe MArs III from asus come out drool.gif

i would say go 900w psu for future maybe u will 3 way sli,

but everything else is very good nice choices
for windows i suggest home premium or ultimate pro not worth it

that rig is powerful will be good for editing

for SSD buy 2 120gb then raid then will give you faster speed then 1 240gb just idea if its not really a suggestion
post #35 of 43
MSI X79 mobos are perfectly fine. Actually they can usually push higher BCLKs than Asus boards can.

my main concerns -
2x Gtx 670's or 1x 680?
8GB enough or should I go (2x8GB)
RIG as follows
CPU – Intel Core i7 3770K $395
RAM – G.Skill Ripjaws Z F3-2400C10D-8GZH 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 $129
Mobo – MSI Z77A-GD65 Motherboard $229
SSD – OCZ Vertex 4 256GB SSD $324
HDD – Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB WD2002FAEX $215
GPU – 2x MSI GeForce GTX 670 Power Edition 2GB OC $998
PSU – Corsair AX850 Gold Power Supply $245
Cooler – Corsair Hydro Series H100 CPU Cooler $159
Case – Corsair Obsidian 650D Case $201
Cheers for any suggestions guys.
Stu


2x 670 is by far more powerful than a 680 ( normaly a 670 is only like 5-8% less powerful than a 680 )
8gb ram is enough for everyday use / gaming. I do editing too with 8gb and it work really well.
May I suggest you change case ? I had it and was really disapointed, its freaking bit and have ok cooling
If you looking for something not too loud, I wont go with the caviar black, I want to change mine because of the noise.
for the SSD I would go with a M3 plextor or M4 , they are apparently the best for the moment

I'd get the Superflower Golden Green 800 for $179 over the $245 AX 850. It's more or less the same PSU as the NZXT HALE90 850 & the Kingwin Lazar Gold 850, either of which I'd choose over the AX850.

wow i didn't know it short the lifespan of the ssd , but what i know it gives huge perfromance

for example with just an SSD with 500mbs read and write , ofc that theory speed, but still anyway
for example 1 GT corsair ssd your windows index score will reach 7.1-7.2

but if you put 2 it will max out and will notice when copying files or editing them from the SSD, but i would suggest new idea came in my mind

Buy 3,

2 ssd small size like 60gb make them for operating system and software installed there but
add 1 sdd with 120gb for big files

i think it will increase the cost this way but wont sacrifice life span of 1 ssd witch will put the clips you will edit on so not risking much
it will increase cos by 30% i think of normal just 1 240gb ssd
