New Build - Video Editing / Motion Graphic System

Hello Everyone,
I am planning on building a new system that will be used primarily for video editing and motion graphics. I will be using the Adobe CS6 suite and maybe some light gaming (Secondary). I'm planning on re-using a couple of my current system components (PSU/Storage Hard Drives/Optical Drives/Case). Is anything coming up in the near-horizon (1-2 Months) that I should wait on? Thanks for your help! :)

Here is the build I am planning on purchasing:

Motherboard: ASUS P9X79 PRO

CPU: Intel Core i7-3930K

Ram: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (x4 = 64gb)

Primary Hard Drive: Crucial M4 256GB SATA III Solid State Drive

Graphics Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 670 2GB

Any comments/suggestions?

  1. Can you list the components you already have? Because if the PSU for instance is bad quality, it could blow up this whole $2000+ rig.

    Looks good, you'v done your research. Only change I can suggest is a lower frequency, low profile RAM.
    The Frequency because there is little performance boost to justify the extra price, and that boost is lost in the higher timings anyway.
    Low Profile so you can add in as large a heatsink as you want (you will need to get one, 2011 CPU's dont come with a stock cooler).
    G.Skill Ares 16GB (2x8GB) 1600Mhz Cl9 1.5v. $85

    Nothing in particular is happening soon in regards to Computers, or at-least not in the area your looking at (for instance, the Ivy Bridge i3's are starting to trickle in). Most I can think of is Ivy Bridge-E processors for the 2011 platform, but there are no firm details (I know of anyway) other than a Q4 2012 release window..
  2. Great! Thank you so much for your help! I'll definitely check out that Ram. I've considered going with this heatsink/fan: ( to keep everything nice and cool but wasn't sure if it would even fit! I've got a LIan-Li PC-A7110 that I'll be putting everything in. The PSU that I'll be using will be the Corsair TX650w ( Is that enough power?
  3. Very nice heatsink that is. I personally wouldn't have it (I would jump straight to a Corsair H100) because I think it is as ugly as it can get, but its about the best air-cooler on the market.

    That case should be able to ft everything just fine.

    PSU is pretty good. Wouldn't trust it to power dual Crossfire/SLI on a rig like this, but as its stands it should be fine.
  4. Thanks manofchalk for your help -- I appreciate it!
