I had similar goals and budget. Wasn't planning on Cyberpower, but ended up buying there today just due to value. Was very careful to specifically spec everything to ensure quality components - as far as I can tell, I'm not sure I could have bought the components on newegg and built it myself any cheaper (not that I was willing to do that)...

Hey you did good. You got a lot more bang for the buck. You should have a good time on that rig. You really built a nice rig. Just keep intouch with Cyberpower during your build Sometimes they have a few problems for some people but I have never had a problem with them and i have bought a few rigs for my family and never had a problem. There are people you could tell you bad stories. They are very busy this time of the year. It is important that you keep in touch with them. Other than that Nice job. Good luck

i like the build but i had my eyes on the i7 3930K or wating for the i7-3820.

lets say i can spend 2000 to 3000. would i be able 2 get a good system out of the newer i7? i mean would it be worth spending extra 500 to 1000 making a i7 3930k or i7-3820?

i mean im willing to spend if i can get diablo 3 on max settings and also want to produce profecinal music. ( Fl Studios , pro tools , Recorde , Audio Mixes and mixers, ) i think i would get like a 60% to 70% increase in performance by using i7 SB Chips. " correct me if im wrong " 4 channel ram = better / faster processing for music. + cpu will do 4 to 4.7Ghz withought a sweat.

No, I don't think you will get a 60% increase going from 2600K to 3930K. Not in gaming, that's for sure.

Some games use more CPU and some use more GPU. If you run a 32 bit system then 4 gb of ram is max. Now the 64 bit system is anything from 512mb to way over 4 gb of ram. I don't no anything about the i7 3930k I do know the i7 2600k is for OC and gaming. Also the i7 920 is a very nice CPU. If you spend 2 to 3000 on a system you could build a see through box with more than one CPU up to 3TB hard drive and have 2-3 GPU's with all the fancy fans and lites. The rig I am on cost me 1500 but there are people who have spent 1000 and have a better computer then me. If you know what you want then you could have someone build it or you could take the time to build it your self.

At the rate our tech is going what is the top of the line now could be obsolete in 6 months. If you want to build a good rig and can afford it either go with the top notch stuff now or go with the med stuff which will handel the games of today and up grade later as the tech advances where you would save money now to use later. There are Guys on here that would love to help you build and they would really help you do a good job, and you will learn a lot as you go. One more thing Do your reserch and if you don't understand then ask even if you think it is stupid. Ya I am long winded lol :)

i under stand. but im not talking about gaming. im sure even i5 can handle diablo 3 on max settings with 2 x 580. im more intrested in music production. so what im trying to fig out is i7 2600k with a good MB or a LGA2011 setup? LGA2011 for the quad memory support. i think it might be to much but not sure thats y im struggling so much between i7 2600k dual memory and the 2011 quad.

Music i think reqs alot of cpu , memory + alot of multi tasking software + piano keyboards / mic's. so i want a set up that can handle the stress that comes with all these things working at once. just the fl studio uses 200+ sound files at te same time. ( kicks , drums , snare , etc. )

if i7-2600 is just as good what should my setup be and what mobo shuld i get so i can get plenty of usb 3.0 / 2.0 , memory and a lil feature proof for gtx 900 series.

I asumed you were looking to do gaming I am sorry for that but with what you just stated is beyond me and what I can share. But again if you over kill than when everything catches up then you will be prepaired? That was just a thought I really have no idea how all that computes and works with a computer. I knew I should have become a rocket scientist lol. You might need more than one CPU to pull all that off. Well anyway I am very sorry that I wasn't able to help. I wish you the best and Good luck.

Not really my cousion does. He has 3 CPU's and a total of 9 TB of hard drives and a total of 6 GPU's everything water cooled. He also has 3 27" monitors. He is into Graphics and web page and he does some things that you want to do and movies. I don't even know if he would get on here. I will ask him tomorrow. But don't get your hops up. You could go to the CPU forum and ask that question. They might be able to help you.
