Both the ASRock Extreme6 and Gigabyte -UD3H will get you to 4.1GHz easily, but I'd recommend the Gigabyte model.

Which of this will help me reach 4.1 Ghz OC, and will the parts i picked below combine with my existing case Coolmaster Centurion 534 including 520 watt psu be able to help me reach my goal? Im still open to suggestion but will definitely head to a Frys near by to see if they will price match the CPU available at Microcenter.

Solid!

And you can add another 660Ti in the future when and ever price drops!

Any particular reason to go with Intel?
8 GB is the minimum amount of RAM I would put in a PC nowadays. Perhaps for video editing I would try to squeeze in 16 GB
Do you still have a (big) HDD to store all the videos? You won't be able to record much with an SSD tongue.gif

This is what I threw together quickly: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/QmCL

Room left for a better PSU (recommended) or big HDD or a pretty case.

I'm not a fan of the big heatspreaders on the corsair ram but it's cheap for 1866 - CL9 2x8GB (so you could easily add an other set in the future for 32 GB if you really wanted to). Or go with 8GB of RAM now and add more later on if you feel you need it. That would free up even more of the budget for a nice PSU and CPU cooler. The tall heatspreaders are easy to remove I found out (not intentional biggrin.gif ) and completely useless actually.

An other good option for the SSD is the Kingston SSDnow V300 120GB, it's a good SSD for its price. SSDs are fast, almost all of them, you'll be hard pressed to actually feel the difference between them during normal usage wink.gif
I picked the 830 here because it's a good, reliable drive (I have it and love it) and better than the 840 (not the pro) IMHO. Unfortunately, it's hard to find one for a normal price in Belgium nowadays.

I didn't put in a CPU cooler or PSU now because I don't know how much you are willing to spend on those and what kind of performance you want. I can tell you that that Zalman is pretty old IIRC and there are better coolers out there. It does look cool though. I wouldn't waste money on one of those AIO watercooling things from Corsair and the likes.
In regards to the PSU, don't overbuy like a lot of people do. Quality over quantity.

If you decide to add a HDD for your recordings: I recommend the Seagate Barracude 7200.14 (1TB or 2TB) . It's very very good (haven't checked US price though) in all aspects (price, noise and performance) .

(PS: I'm not an Asus fanboy at all BTW. The sabertooth is just a solid board ( you could go with a cheaper board if you want) and the GPU was cheap and the cooler is very good )

EDIT:
If you decide to stick with intel: the motherboard really doesn't do a lot in terms of overclocking. Especially 4.1 GHz. Pretty much all CPU's should be able to achieve that.

Uhm Yea, in regards to this: I have been buying PSU's and motherboards with this in mind for as long as there was Crossfire and SLi I think. I have never done it so far. Usually the better option is to sell off the old card and get a new one so I wouldn't think too much about that.

Do you mean Case + Cooler + PSU < $ 100? Like ALL added together and less than $ 100?
Sure, carboard box + stock cooler + quality PSU that's less than $100 wink.gif

Oh, of course!
Case: this is personal taste. But 60-70 $ should get you a decent-looking case with decent features. I always say: get something you like because that's usually the only thing about a computer you see. Scroll through a couple of online shops and see if you see something you like. It's just a case ...
CPU cooler: Noctua NH-D14 / Thermalright Silver Arrow / phanteks ph-tc14pe are all up there as best air coolers available ATM (while remaining silent)
PSU: Depends on what you want, for your system I would look at something around 550 - 650W (that's already overkill) depending on your future plans. Brands like Corsair, Seasonic, BeQuiet are solid choices. There are other brands out there though but always look up reviews (and not those reviews where they hook it up and if it runs then they give it a gold award .... those aren't reviews IMHO). thumb.gif
