fx sucks. it makes no sense to get one if you are not overclocking as overclocking covers its performance loss compared to intel chip for the same price. not to mention fx draws a ton of power

2 hard drives doesnt make much sense.

will perform a lot better in games and CPU workloads

if the GPU is too expensive, drop down to a 7850

the power supply is also junk

the i5 3450 performs about the same as the fx 8150 in work and about destroys the fx in games and power consumption. bulldozer is a waste of time. get the 8320 if you are still thinking of getting AMD. just remember that intel chips still destroy piledriver in single threaded tasks and games

I think i go with i7-3820 LGA2011 good choose right? becouse im gona extreamly render videos

So if i go with intel i7 3820 i go with this system:

CPU:Intel core i7 3820 LGA 2011 3.6 GHZ
MOBO:MSI X79A-GD45 (8D)
RAM:Kingston 2x4gb 1600MHZ CL9 HyperX
HDDs:2 western digitals caviar blue 1 tb each 7200 RPM 64mb Buff SATA 3
DVD:samsung dvd rw x22
Graphics:Asus radeon HD7770 1 gb gddr5 directcu v2
case:Aero cool x predator 1 x USB3.0
PSU:Corsair 750W, CMPSU-750HXEU, 140mm, 80+ Gold, Cable Mng

So correct everything thats final i choose this if all correct and psu is not too much?

no. the 3820 is not a great choice. look at a i7 3770k if you really think you need that many threads
November 15, 2012 4:40:14 PM

yeah but budget too!

the 3820 systems cost more. you dont make much sense

what is your budget, location, and parts that you need for the build. ill suggest a build
November 16, 2012 8:57:08 AM

Budget about 900-800$ location Latvia parts anything but so it would be good for hardcore rendering and power gaming

yes so a a i5 3450 or 3330 or a 3470 system would be way better. get whichever i5 is cheaper

you arent going to get a extreme gaming system or a rendering beast with 900
November 17, 2012 5:41:46 PM

I choosed my system thanks! pretty powerful and cheap900$ i7
