Hello,
I have finally gained some money enough to build JUST ONE PC. But as you may all know, needs and specs does not came along all the way usually. So, I need to do all of the following stuff with my single and (ONLY) future PC:

1- Engineering Apps and Technical Computing using MATLAB.

2- Programming using Visual C# 2012 and Delphi

3- AutoCAD Electrical some times.

4- Simulation software.

5- Office (Word Excel PowerPoint) lots of it.

6- Adobe Photoshop Image manipulation and design. sometimesز

7- Some gaming and I play some really heavy games some times too.

8- The usual stuff (Net/Music/Movies)

So,, I am thinking of building a new System that is able to do every one of the above, but I noticed

some things that made me confused a little bit.
For example, Some sites said that i7 3770K is perfect for games not for other stuff, while some sites

suggest that i7 3930K is best for everything but gaming.

So , could any one please suggest a full PC specs that may give me no compromise performance.

So far I reached The Following Config:
Case: Cooler Master Cosmos II Ultra Tower
MoBo: Asus Rampage IV Extreme
CPU: Intel Core i7 3930K
GPU: Asus GTX 670 DC II
RAM: Corsair Dominator Kit 32GB 1866MHz
HDD: Seagate barracuda 3TB 10000rpm
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB
PSU: Corsair AX1200
Cooler: Corsair H100

So,, how would the above specs do for me, and I am open to any other suggestion or even a full

configuration makeover.

Please let me know what do you think.

Looks good but if you want to save money I7 3770K and a Z77 board. You really only need a 750-850 watt PSU to drive a system like that with 2 x GTX670 in it.

I have read so many things that made me confused mainly stating that CPUs and GPUs targeted for gaming are different from and not suitable for other stuff like I mentioned in my question (AutoCAD and others stuff)
.
So Is that true ??
For example : Nvidia Quadro .. V.S... Nvidia GTX ??
