    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.

    Will the Xeon 1230 v2 support 1080p 3D and Adobe SpeedGrade?

    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.
  10. Ok, thanks guys.
