What made you stick with the non k when it's only marginally cheaper?

I needed the extra features that the 3770k doesnt support.

Which are?

I'm an AMD guy so have no idea, I though the only difference was the K was multiplier unlocked

Hi everyone, I have been interested in building my own PC for the longest time and this will be my first time. I already purchased the XB EVO case and now looking at the hardware needed. Since I am very new to all of this, I'm trying to do some research on what would be best for what I need.

I am currently using a Dell Studio XPS 435MT:
Intel Core i7-920 processor (8MB L3 Cache, 2.66GHz)
6GB DDR3 SDRAM 1067mhz
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260

I use my computer for video editing with Sony Vegas and play some casual games. These are the requirements for both.

Sony Vegas
2 GHz Processor (Multicore or Multiprocessor CPU Recommended for HD or Stereoscopic 3D)
4GB RAM (8GB Recommended)
OHCI-Compatible IEEE-1394DV Card (for DV and HDV capture and print-to-tape)
512MB GPU Memory
GPU-accelerated video processing and rendering require an OpenCL-supported NVIDIA, AMD/ATI, or IntelGPU with 512MB Memory or More

Game Recommended Requirements
CPU: Dual Core
RAM: 1GB
Graphics Card: GeForce 6600GT, ATI X800 or better

My budget is around $1000 for the hardware. I've noticed that i7-3770(k)/i7-4770(k) seem to be somewhat popular for video editing. As for graphics cards, I'm completely lost.

Any feedback that can bee given would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Joining the ranks!

I ordered my HAF XB EVO today - psyched. redface.gif

Could use some advice on the build - it's totally tentative. I have a water cooler and power supply as listed in my sig, but I'm looking ahead to thinking I'll need something new.

MB: I'm most unsure about the motherboard - obviously I'd want a Z87 chipset, to maximize the use of my i7 4770k, and get some overclock.
RAM :Not sure about my ram decision - how important is voltage? Intel says 1.5+5%, but many run higher. This is for overclock
HYDRO: I've got the Corsair 60, I'll likely get something doublewide to fit the case - suggestions?
SSD: IDK
Theme: Green?

I think this is the coolest community - the HAF XB is a sick case, and IMO the perfect case for a sick new build. I'd appreciate any feedback and I look forward to posting photos biggrin.gif

Just got some goodies for my PC! Next up is the HAF XB case. Had to grab a wireless PCIe card and a new cooler so that I can swap out the stock intel cooler I've had for two years while my rig is in pieces.
