Looking for a little advice or critiques on a gaming and intensive graphic build (some video editing and CAD).
CPU: I7 3930K
Motherboard: Asus Rampage IV Extreme LGA 2011 OR ASRock X79 Extreme6/GB LGA 2011
Cooler: Noctua DH-14 SE2011 or liquid cooler (Brand/Model?), unsure of at this point.
RAM: Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) OR G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Do I really need 32GB?
HDD: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s - Owned x2
SSD: Patriot Pyro SE PPSE120GS25SSDR 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC
PSU: CORSAIR Professional Series Gold AX1200 - Own it already
Case: CM HAF 932
GPU: ASUS GTX680-2GD5 GeForce GTX 680 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP - Or another manufacturer, but which?
Basically this is going to be a build that my two boys are going to attempt with Dad footing the bill, lol. I am an electrical engineer who is a weekend geek, but haven't really attempted a build of this sort (I've done some overclocking, but not to the level of you all). The kids are doing all the research with me pointing the way, they are 8 and 15. I just need to be a few steps ahead of them right now. The main focus is gaming, CAD drawings, some video and getting into the wonderful world of OC'ing. I had received some good advice previously from peeps on this site and figured you may be able to point out something that I am missing or help me solidify the hardware for this build.
Any thoughts or comments are appreciated.
