Have you read the OP at all? He doesn't mention GAMING ONLY. If it was the case I would have said i5 3570K or i7 3770k.

But he said games, video editing and video conversion. rolleyes.gif

get the 3930K, no need to go for the extreme chip even if money isnt an issues its a pointless upgrade.

Thanks guys for the valuable info. And yes i guess 3930K would be better suited as he does plan to make this hobby of his into a career. I'll convey this to his father and get started on this work soon enough.

good stuff huzz, let us know if you make a build thoughts thread, ill be happy to assit if you need help.

If money is not an issue, then go as extreme as possible. The 3970X is an absolutely insane CPU, but is not worth $1000, when compared to the performance of a $500 3930k, or a $300 3770k. If he is doing a lot of video editing, then a hex-core will be a huge help over a quad-core. I would recommend getting a 3930k for a more economical option, or the 3970X for the best possible CPU for a single CPU situation.

For whatever 2011 CPU you end up using, I recommend an Asus ROG board (Republic of Gamers). You'll easily be able to find waterblocks for them, and the ROG Rampage IV Extreme (RIVE) supports quad-SLI, and 64GB of memory at up to 2800mHz. They are fantastic boards; I will never trust any other series/manufacturer for my personal rigs.

Assuming he is doing gaming and video editing, getting a professional series card seems pointless. Once again, if money is no issue, then get 2x GTX Titans in SLI. 3-way Titan SLI, and 4-way Titan SLI, can actually cause a CPU-based bottleneck, causing the performance to drop past below that of a single Titan, in some cases. They are fantastic cards, and can hit some crazy overclocks, when under water.

For video editing, go with 64GB of memory. Something with low CL, and as high of a frequency as possible. G.SKILL sells some 2133mHz CL9 memory, but only in 4GB sticks, I believe. Look into Corsair and G.SKILL for memory; something with a CL of 9 or below. 1866mHz is fast enough for anything, and as long as you have enough (64GB is enough), he will be fine with all editing situations/gaming situations.

For a build of hypothetical unlimited budget, I would watercool it with a crazy loop in a Case Labs case. Look into full-cover EK blocks for the motherboard and graphics cards, and Swiftech, Koolance, and EK for CPU blocks. RAM blocks are not necessary, but may add an aesthetic appeal that you or he likes. I personally love the EK blocks for Corsair Dominator memory, but XSPC makes blocks as well. For fittings, assuming you do end up watercooling, I love Bitspower fittings.

Hope that helps.

That does help. But the place where i live, i would run out of options before i run out of money when buying what you suggested. Although i do have a good knowledge about what the market is over here and i could easily grab a corsair. But the case and the Water cooling gear would be difficult to arrange. at least locally.

Anyways, will hit the local shops tomorrow, let you guys know what i find for opinions

Dude your not gonan need 64GB of ram even if it is running at 2800mhz...

Where you from . I have the same problem with PC parts here in South Africa . Water cooling parts are difficult to find. I use EK Water blocks as they have a great range in the online shop and they DHL to South Africa . Sidewinder is my second choice also online. I can second the comment on the Asus ROG Rampage IV Extreme . Great range of boards , just built a 3930 k on a ROG Rampage IV Gene last week . I don't recommend the Gene as the third slot is too close to the second and you cant use it for anything if you have 2 GPU's installed. I arranged a RMA for a Extreme on Monday smile.gifwheee.gif

I'm in Mid east. Difficult to find products and more of an hassle if bought online since the customs here leave the product sometimes totals to around 2ce the offer price listed online.
