I do lots of gaming and video editing, if that helps at all. Every time I type in "the best video card" or "the best processor" they are all about budget. I don't really care about that. I just want to know what the absolute best processor and video cards are.

Thanks

Sounds like you're in the market for a SB-E CPU and either a 7990 or GTX690.

Intel Core i7-3930K Sandy Bridge-E - $570
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Intel Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition - $1000 (not worth the extra money but is technically the best desktop CPU available)

GPUs:

PowerColor AX7990 6GBD5-A2DHJ DEVIL13 - $1000

(good luck finding one in stock, you could just get a couple of 7970s and Crossfire them)

EVGA Signature 04G-P4-2692-KR GeForce GTX 690 4GB - $1050
(also could just get a couple of GTX 680s and SLI them)

Actually the 3970k is out... and if you really want to be crazy... pair a couple of Xeons on a SR2 MB... As for video cards, if your gaming... Get 2x 7970s...
