your thinking of twelve cores because of the hyperthreading....
its not twelve cores UNLESS YOU GO WITH A DUAL XEON BOARD( which at this point in time not even worth its specially with sandybridge out

If your going to go i7, then get the i7-2600k. It may not be 6 cores, but trust me the new sandybridge processors are much better than their first gen i7 counterparts. Oh and I forgot ram. Add this to the system. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231314. Avoid dominator ram. It is overpriced and is no better than ram from ocz, gskill, or other brands.

Not bad. You don't need a 1000W power supply though. An 850W is plenty for your power needs.

DUDE YOU DONT NEED A FIRST GEN i7 its to expensive
if you really need six cores WAIT IT OUT
Trust OCN boys and girls who are helping you build this seriously for cheaper you can get this processor and motherboard

Volvo Posted this (thanks man saved time lol )

Processor : This one beats the 970 by ten miles
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-070-_-Product

Motherboard : this is good one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131701

reason for higher end mobo is to get more graphics cards on there your going to want multiple for doing more work specially with what your asking for video and photo editing if your saying its heavy user intensive

Those bundle kits that newegg sells are not that great
Actually your paying more for something you could get for alot cheaper really......

remember ocn knows what there talking about even if i dont but still what there building for you is alot better then what your looking at no joke about it there

just an opinion

But like i said if you really want six cores or even 8 cores ( which i have a six core and compared to sandybridge newer stuff that is coming out doesnt even compare to them } Just wait it out and save the money for the newer stuff because from what it looks like you could just get five playstation 3 and make a number crunching beast but hey just an opinion

OP this is great advice and is exactly what I was saying earlier. You will be much better off with a sandybridge processor than a first gen i7 and it will cost you less.
