General use. Single monitor. No OC. No SLI. Possibly some editing.

Hmm.... you should just get a regular 3770 and not the 3770k. it's $20-30 cheaper and there is no performance difference since you're not overclocking. You would also save some money on the motherboard too.

And since you're just doing editing, i wouldn't even recommend a graphics card either (unless you're playing games)

Xeon 1230 v2 is the way to go if you dont overclock.

Yes it will


Thanks. Do you think I really need a P8Z77-V for this build or could I save some money by going with a cheaper board
(P8Z77-V LX, P8Z77-M, P8Z77-V LK, P8H77-I) ?

if you're not overclocking, then you don't need a Z77 motherboard. you can save at least $40 by getting a H77 motherboard.
