  1. What's your budget? You will most definitely need an aftermarket cooler with the 3930K since it doesn't come with one - Intel assumes most people willing to drop $600 on a CPU will have one already. I suggest the Noctua D14. It's also incredibly pointless to spend $1K on a video card when 2 $400 video cards will give you identical frame rates and you'll come out $200 ahead.

    What's your budget? I can suggest a system if I knew that.
  2. Yeah, i know that this CPU doesn't come with a cooler. I really don't know wich cooler to get.

    So you're saying that i should get 2 gtx 680?

    I'm more concerned building a system that can do a lot of math/statistical calculations, and maybe using 4 monitors.

    I really don't have a budget for this because i will use thiis system to work as well, so i'm thinking about this as an invesment :)

    No I'm saying two 670s will give you identical performance to a 690. See for yourself: http://hexus.net/tech/reviews/graphics/39605-nvidia-geforce-gtx-670-sli-vs-the-beasttm/?page=3

    But again if you give me a budget I can suggest a full build.
  4. Use a range between 2k-4k budget.

    BTW thanks for your help.
