Hello guys ,

i want to make high end gaming PC but at the same time i want to make sure it will be perfect for video editing, please find the below spec that i choose :

I7 3930k
Asus rampage extreme
32GB (8X1) 1600Mhz ( do i need higher speed and what is the highest without stability issue?)
Samsung SSD 840 PRO
VGA Nvidia Titan or GTX780 ( do you recommend 690GTX?)

i think these are the major parts which will make different other parts is not a big deal unless it will effect the real life performance.

dual sli titans and get a haswell build 4770k + something like the msi z87 mpower max
you might also want to get a really nice full tower case with lots of airflow and water cooling

This is the coolest build you can make. There is no advantage of the 3930K anymore. The i7 4770K is like 98 percent close to it. So just get the i7 4770K. This is an awesome build with a Beautiful Black Theme which makes it a beauty. If i had this much money, i would have got for this build anytime. This is the beauty no one can ignore. This is a beast which nothing can destroy. In other words, this is it.. This is what you should get.

the E Series CPUs are good for multi threaded applications, though only if u get the 6 Core ones that cost a grand, their single Core performance is behind Haswell (agreeably as thy're based on the Sandy Bridge Architecture, and the upcoming ones on Ivy), so a 4770K will get u more or less better performance than a 4 Core Sandy (or even Ivy) Extreme Series CPU and costs far less, also the upcoming ones aren't getting a new Chipset so u still have only 2 SATA III ports and no native USB 3.0 Support, whereas in Haswell u get 6 of both these ports (with Z87)
the only advantage that Sandy or Ivy-E platform does offer is if u wanna do tri or quad SLI as it has much more PCI Express Lanes (40 compared to 16 for Haswell) but then again the performance scaling for tri/quad SLI is not worth the money u put into it, so i would go with the above build and add another 780 there
(sorry if this became too long)

Absolutely right, it is like you are reading my mind. :) 

I know 780 SLI beats anything right now. But if he has a 1080p monitor then he won't need another 780. If he has a 1440p monitor, then he should definitely go for 780 Two way SLI.

Go blindly for the i7 4770K. It is a very good CPU. The 4770K kills the 3930K in Single Threaded performance, and in the Multi Threaded the 3930K is just slighly ahead of the i7 4770K, but the difference is too small to be actually taken into account. In any way you are very good with the 4770K, believe me the i7 4770K is a very good CPU.

This build has everything. It will easily handle any task thrown at it. Depending on your monitor setup, you may want to drop a GPU or two. You may also want to add a bigger and/or faster SSD.
