The PC (Hardware) - http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1vBf9
Total cost = 3,800

I do have a question though.....Should I be worried about parts getting hot?

Hello everyone, thanks to everyone who has helped me with all my questions about hardware, recommending me parts and just being a big help in general. Thanks

PS. I finally agreed on these parts because I wanted to be able to have a power computer that will easily be able to run the new releases on max settings with still great FPS. I also needed a good CPU and RAM for video editing and being able to keep high frames while recording the gameplay.

Tell me what you think? (I won't be buying all of this right away because I still need to save up all the money). Thanks a lot everyone! :)

1. The 3930k doesn't game as well as Haswell ....lotta wasted cash for less performance.

2. The 900D is case for someone using 3-4 water cooling radiators....wasted w/ the useless H100i. used real WC below with < 20dba noise (H100 is 38 dba advertised / as high as 60 on youtube)

yup, he's right ^

ivy bridge e will be coming out soon as well and it doesnt look like it will be a drastic improvement over sandy bridge e, if you are set on the 3930k and arent buying soon, might be worth it to wait for the 4930k.

i would say stick with the 256 gb ssd for video editing, can never have enough cache or ssd space for cs6 :) 

agree with maximus VI or even sabretooth.

32gb of 2133 sounds like a hell of a deal, depending on your program you use, might be worth it..
