  5. Budget please.
  6. Oh. Well, the 3960X makes no difference in gaming. Get the i7-3770K, and 16GB of 1600 RAM. You went a bit overboard, lol.

    Do you live near a Microcenter? What state and city do you live in?
  8. Then the above build is the best you can do.
  9. I live in Puyallup, WA Near Tacoma.
  10. Not near a micro center

    Really? How come?
  12. Pro3? Get the ASRock Extreme 4 or Extreme 6.
  13. I thought that the asus extreme 6 was the best
  14. and the i7 3960x was too
  15. Not for gaming. For gaming, you won't see any difference between the 3960x and the i5-3570k.
  16. It's a common misconception that you need an i7 and 16GB of RAM to game. All you need is an i5 and 8GB. I see that you're a serious multitasker, so I'd get an i7 and 16GB of RAM. But, you got 2400MHz RAM which makes no difference compared to 1600, and the i7 3960X is a beast, but it is very niche. I'd get an i7 3770K, 16GB of 1600 RAM, 2 670's in SLI, etc.
  17. Yes, then get the i7-3770k. If you want to get 2 670s, you will need a monitor that is right for it. I recommend 2560x1440 IPS monitors.
  18. Or 2560x1600 :D
  19. Or those, but you can't really beat an H-IPS 2560x1440 for the price (Catleap). :D
