Have you purchased anything yet? With the $s involved, be much better off with a Intel build, based on a 4770K, what all are you planning to do with this?

It's just a theoretical build. And, an Intel themed one will not get 4.7 GHZ, even OCed. Only the 4960X will be able to do that. Plus, Intel products cost way more than that CPU. Same for the GPU.

GHz itself doesn't mean a whole lot, the AMD 9590 is supposedly 4.7 stock, yet it gets beat in most things by a 4770K at 3.5 stock...Make a simple 1 item change (the 4770K CPU multiplier to 40) and 4770K really starts increasing the difference (and the bulk of 4770K can OC to to 4.5 anyway, and this doesn't take into effect tha additional increased performance one will seefrom the DRAM as the AMD doesn't effectively deal with DRAM nearly as well as Intel MCs (memory controllers)

With a 4K budget, I can't offer an AMD CPU....there are none, the 9590 isnt really much if any better than a OCed 8350. Can do much better on the Intel side even going back to 3rd Gen CPU based builds

well if you remove the peripherals, it'll be a 3k build. Got any plans for that?

You could overclock that FX9590 to over 6.0ghz and it still wouldn't be as strong as an i7 4770k. AMD has absolutely NOTHING to offer in the high end gaming market. This would be SO much better for $400 cheaper.
