Heavily-threaded software + overclocking = 2600k (I know it's not on your list but it's just a multiplier adjustment away from a 2700k for less money)

Heavily-threaded software - overclocking = 3770

Software with 4 threads or less + overclocking = 2500k

Software with 4 threads or less - overclocking = 3570

^+1 I was thinking that too. You need at least a GTX660Ti or GTX670.

Edit - if you already own the GTX560Ti SLI it - hurry you may have trouble finding one.

I'm not looking to over-clock anything I'll mainly use basic stock setup.

Softwares like - Photoshop, flash, maya, visual studio etc

My budget for processor and GPU is the price of - (intel i7 3770 + gtx 560 ti)

If you can suggest any other combo within that price range of the combo which I've mentioned above for HIGH-END gaming, it would be very helpful.

Thank you :bounce:  :bounce:  :bounce:  :bounce:  :bounce:  :bounce:

Prices vary from websites and shops, what is your exact budget on those 2 components either seperate or together.
