Hey guys I just recently got a bonus and im going to be buying a pc from www.cyberpowerpc.com with the intel X79 configurator. If any of you guys who probably have much, much better knowledge of hardware/cases,etc than me could you please setup the best rig I could get for 3.5k there and list me the parts or email me the saved config @ eyesore@gmail.com (once youve finished the config, it will have a save config and ask for your email address) If you guys could do this , that would BE AMAZING and very thankful.
I don't need a new monitor or speaker system so dont worry about adding those. I'm a big gamer, I'm also a free lancer contract 3D Artist/Graphic Designer, so i need a really good graphics/gaming PC.
Thanks in advance, you guys rock :D

Building a pc yourself will cost less than getting a pre-built one,

I.e if you know how to build one.

I own a 256GB OCZ Vertex 4 and it works like a charm. Since you have a huge budget, you could go for the 512GB version.

I will not say build your own but I will say you may want to look elsewhere as well as cyberpower. They are an ok website but thats about where it ends ok.

There is almost no reason to go beyond the lga 1155 i7 3770k. IT would save a ton of money or allow upgrades in different areas

My advice is $2500
http://www.digitalstormonline.com/comploadode.asp?id=69...
or play around with there configs.

If you are set on the x79 configs heres my suggestion
