1: where do you buy your parts?

2: way, WAY to expensive for the performance

3 you can get g.skill 2133mhz 8gb sets of 53 dollars, why spend more?

4: that 650w will pull the system just fine but there are better deals for 240 euro

5: i7 doesn't bring anything special to the table, get the i5 4670k/amd 8350 instead.

Yeah, I'd go with the Ivy Bridge build, it's the cheapest (for some reason the AMD motherboard selection there is pretty bad) and the performance for all three systems would be quite similar.

 

Also some alternatives I'd highly recommend

PLOT TWIST

 

So I've been talking to him and he will need some quind of a hibrid (working and gamming). From the description he gave me about his working program, its a CAD like analysis software for his university projects, a high CPU load program. So i don't know if i'll go to a i5 or i7 :-S

About the overkill choices he wants something to last, at least 5 years.

None of my choices limit the performance, just save him money :P

if it is multi-core dependent, the 8350 is a goldmine for the task.

Ok I would go with the SAPPHIRE 100363TXSR Radeon R9 280X 3GB 384-bit  card instead. I know this is going to get some comments but I personally dont think that the asus boards are overpriced at all the performance they and reviews are second to none MSI and the others their custome service sucks and they dont make the greatest product in my opnion and considering that  Asus is the leading seller of motherboards period in the us at least I'm not alone in that belief  by any means.
