About to start a BRAND NEW build!

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I just leased a new office and am planning to move my current home desktop into it, and then build a new one for my home. I haven't bought anything in over a year so I'm a little out of the loop with what's new, and I'm still pretty much a noob when it comes to motherboards anyway.

So I'm looking to start something new from scratch - board, cpu, ram, gfx card, power supply, case, and a couple new monitors. I'd like something "the next level up" from my current setup (the one in my sig). Budget is about $1200 and I'll pick up the monitors separately. I would like to stick to Thermaltake towers as I really like them.

Any recommendations?

Graphics, video editing, and then the typical general stuff. The setup I have now is perfect for what I use it for, but it's a year old and if I'm buying a brand new rig anyway I might as well go up a notch.

Wow thanks! That setup looks perfect. Is the CPU cooler necessary? I don't have one of my current build.

no, just dont overclock on the stock one, i went to 4.2ghz on the stock, ran intel burn in and within about 1min was at 103c and it was still climbing.
i personally own the same motherboard, cpu, and gpu.. pretty happy with them. i have a lower wattage psu but same brand.

If your going to do Video editing I would highly recommend something along my rig setup, Minus the video card which I'm waiting for the new 700 series to launch befor upgrading, Most of my $ is in my audio. I love my new system Photoshop loads before you can blink so does the Cry-engine Editor.

I know you said Thermaltake and I feel ya on that, But this C70 Vengeance Case is amazing so well built and airflow is fantastic in it. Make sure to get great memory and at least 8gb+ for any video/photo editing will help alot

No $1200 is complete without an SSD. My advice:

- Ditch the i7 3770k in favor of an Ivy Bridge Xeon E3-1230 and save $90. The Xeon will match the stock performance of the i7 and generate less heat (the only caveat is its inability to be overclocked).

- Replace that overpriced motherboard the more reasonable ASRock Z77 Extreme4, which is still probably overkill. Save $75.

- Funnel said savings into an SSD, like this 240gb Mushkin Enhanced Chronos SSD and remain budget neutral.

The PSU is also probably overkill, but a quality PSU certainly isn't an awful thing to invest in.

EDIT: The RAM in that wishlist is also overpriced. Save $25 on this GeIL set (you won't notice any performance hit) or $15 on this comparable Patriot set.

I thought the Xeon e3 is a server CPU with lower l1 and l2 cache, if that's the case would that not be slower in Editing software,


EDIT: Im wrong about that there pretty much the same at stock I still prefer the i7 tongue.gif

the i7 will come in very handy for rendering video
as for the motherboard, i never skimp since my old biostar. but valid point about overkill, however i'd rather have it and not need it, then not have it and need it. really up to what you know you need vs what you think you may need and will never need.

ssd is a nice thing to have, yet with video editing you'll suck up a ton of hd space. the size needed while editing videos its a very bad investment. ssd isn't going to help performance other than boot/shut down and program load times.
the focus here is on rendering and storing these files.
the psu is overkill but a quality psu you can move on to a new system down the road, with the extra headroom there's never a worry.
the ram i picked due to quality and colors. theres cheaper out there but i like knowing that i can look into my system and it looks all geek-sexy
