Christ...what is your problem kid? Your saying things like, "your son sounds about 12 and need his old man to take care of stuff for him", then you go onto say, "oh my mum built my pc though".

"Im not old enough to make jdgement, but John (Ive never met you and dont know you), however your son is 'garbage'". Where do you get off on insulting people like that?

To be honest Kid, I dont think this forum is the right place for you, maybe you should come back in a few years when you've got some respect, manners and are building your own computers, instead of asking mummy to.

However he can purchase the other parts and wait till Bulldozer/Ivy Bridge/Sandy Bridge(once the iteration of Recall's goes through it cycle).
To be quite honest, to me the OP comes across as a proud dad who just wants to really suprise his Son on his Birthday, I dont think he is too worried if the PC he builds wont be top notch in 3 months time, so long as his son is still happy, which he would be with a PC we all can help to build.

I think a good i7 980x or a 6 core amd build, with ssd, a few GPU's and his son is gonna be really happy.

But pretty much, my son is turning 18 in 23days, he uses Cinema 4d, Photoshop/etc, and I Really want to get a nice computer for him, He currently uses a amd dual core 5600, with like 3Gigabytes of ram or something.

I Want this to be a surprise, and I have 4,000$ Saved up... for him, I just wanted to come here to post because It seems like this message board is big and alot of people know what there doing, so Why not.

Thanks -

John
I am quite certain that $4,000 is overkill for a Cinema 4D/photoshop PC. Only the nastiest enthusiast would spend that much on a rig. You could buy an AMD rig for half the price that should be able to perform those two tasks easily.

As demonstrated earlier in the $1900 USD build consisting of an AMD 1100T system and dependent components that I was able to create on Newegg within a few minutes.

Check for the Asus Rampage III Extreme, in my opinion the best motherboard for that beast CPU!

good cpu to get , go with the asus rampage III extreme, its one of the best motherboards out for that cpu. The maker is very reputable for quality, and that board is make for performance. Also if anything is ever wrong with the board asus has pretty good support for the motherboard to get things sorted out and/or fixed if needed.

I would have to recommend the Gigabyte GA-EX58A-UD7 as the best LGA 1366 board, having owned both the Evga Classified and Asus Rampage III Extreme. Also, unless your son is going to OC, you might as well want to pick up a Corsair H70 over the standard box cooler, although the standard cooler that comes with the Core i7-980X isn't that bad.

I can confirm that the Rampage III Extreme is a viable choice if you are interested in pursuing a LGA 1366 path.

Also a great choice. I was also going to mention that.

I think I'll add my vote for the Rampage III it seems like a very high quality board.
Next you'll need RAM, from the sound of things your son does lots of RAM intensive tasks so it's hard to go wrong with this. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231315
