I was wondering if I could get some advice for the pc I'm putting together. It will be used for game development, next to regular gaming.

$569.99 Intel Core i7-3930K | 3.2ghz x 6 | http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$319.99 ASUS Sabertooth X79 | SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 | http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$329.99 CORSAIR Dominator 16GB | (4 x 4GB Quad Channel) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400mhz | http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$209.99 CORSAIR Professional Series | 1050 watt | http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$189.99 ASUS ENGTX560 | 1GB DDR5 850mhz/1700mhz/4200mhz | http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$139.99 Intel SSD HDD | 120GB SATA III | http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$94.99 Seagate HDD | 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache | http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The reason why it does not have a super good videocard is because it can easily be upgraded in a year or so. Also, the 1050 watt is if I ever want a SLI setup.

Any recommendations ? Thanks!

1050W is seriously overkill even for an SLI setup, unless you are planing Quadfire or Triple SLI of HD 7970s of 680s. a 750W should be plenty


As for the rest of it, I'd suggest a 3770K and Z77 will work as well for far less, and would (along with the 750W) almost save enough for 670s in SLI!

Thanks for the suggestions.

Would you even recommend this CPU over the 3700k ?
