  4. Try this, a bit less cooling power, but an R9 290X is a massively powerful card...

  5. thanks every one for the suggestions , i clearly will go with i7-4790k, but what about radeon R9 290X , i prefer to go with nvidia but as i told u iam not an expert ,
    and i dont need optical drive i already have external bluer-ray read/write
  6. If you can go nvidia, their cuda cores heklp alot
  7. Depends on the video editor you're using. Look at its system requirements.
  8. Anything up from 280X or 770 will be good for gaming, 290X is a beast gaming GPU, and some programs like Vegas Pro (video rendering not 3D modelling) likes AMD a lot in terms of GPU acceleration, while others don't. Most 3D modelling softwares like CUDA cores' graphic computing power a lot, a GTX 780 will be a good choice :)

    well since i am not doing alot of video editing i will go with the gtx 780 to handle my 3d modelling

  10. Best answer
    You can also get rid of the cpu cooler and get a 780ti with the money, or better yet, save for the 900 seriwes to come out, they'll knock down 700 prices too
  11. Let me come in and give a hand...

  12. Mobo is too expensive. In that price range, ASRock Z97 Extreme 6 is better - http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/enthusiast-z97-motherboard-overclock,3893-27.html

    1866 memory is more cost effective than 2400
  13. Try to get 2133/2400MHz with CL10 if you can, faster memory are beneficial for such builds.
