Hi there,

Planning to upgrade my machine to something like this.

Processor : i7 3820 OR i7 2700K
Motherboard : Asus Maximus V GENE OR Intel® Desktop Board DZ77GA-70K
SMPS : Cooler Master 650W
RAM : CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3
Monitor : Asus - VS247H LED HD
HardDisk 1 :120 GB SSD Corsair (Primary Drive for OS & Application)
HardDisk 2 : 1 TB HDD
Cabinet : Cooler Master 311 plus
Graphic Card : I Already Have - Nvidia6800

My Primary usage is graphic design + bit of video editing. Wanna make a system which will give me a good 3 years run onto it without any major upgrade. Need inputs/advice. Help.

Cheers
Kamlesh

How intense of a graphics design do you use? SB-E isn't automatically going to be worth it just because you are doing those things. The app has to make use of the extra cores and such to make it worthwhile.

First off what's the budget? I wouldn't get a case that cheap if you plan to go X79.

And the 3820 won't work in a Z77 board, and you should never go mATX with a full desktop build.

Unless you don't need the extra features ATX boards offer. I believe Raiddinn listed reasons why mATX is just fine for a mid tower case.
