Hi I am doing the final check for my pc rig setup before ordering parts, 1st question: does this system look good to you? It will be used for cs6 programs, xara, various drawing apps like Corel draw, sketchbook pro ect... Some maya, 3ds max and mud box and games as well. I want it to be able to play modern games on high settings on 1080p screen, I'm a moderate gamer.

Case: Fractal Design Define R4 (Black Pearl)-95
CPU: i7 3930k-560
GPU: Galaxy 67NPH6DV5ZVX GeForce GTX 670 GC-470
Motherboard: ASUS P9X79 PRO LGA 2011 Intel x79-300
Ram: G.Skill Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600-50
Hard drive: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM-70
Ssd: Samsung 830 Series 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk-100
Air cooling for CPU: CORSAIR Hydro series H50-60
Power supply: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W-110
Monitors: ASUS VS239H-P Black 23" 5ms 2x-330
Optical drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST-20

2nd question: how much money do you think I could save overall on this build on Black Friday or cyber Monday? Thanks!

That is one heavily overpriced 670. Where are you buying it? 670s go for at least $399 now.

I find the motherboard overkill as well, but if you need the extra features or ports, go ahead.

Corsair Hxx series isn't air cooling, it's water. Get the 212 EVO instead, it should outperform even the H60.

The others look good to me. :)  I assume the monitor choice is an IPS panel?

Wow, this build is really problematic and it isn't that good aswell.

Waste of money. =(

You won't be saving much. Older stocks would be on BF/CM not new stocks.

Okay, thanks for the reply... Could you actually help me instead of just saying what's wrong with it, that's why I am here. I don't mind negative criticism but please make it constructional :sarcastic:  please let me know what you think would be a good build lol. You seem to know a lot XD

Are you sure you will be needing the CPU/MOBO.
Both cost $860 which can already make another build.

Here's my new thoughts on the buid, although if you have experience with software such as maya 3ds max or something similar you would know that the processor is crucial to be able to run it without it being sketchy. I did downgrade the mobo though, that was too much lol:

Case: Corsair Special Edition White Graphite Series 600T Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower-170
CPU: i7 3930k-560
Gpu: MSI N670 PE 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 670 2GB-360
Motherboard: ASRock X79 Extreme6 LGA 2011-220
Ram: G.Skill Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600-50
Hard drive: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM-70
Ssd: Samsung 830 Series 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk-100
Air cooling for CPU: evo 212-30
Power supply: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W-110
Monitors: ASUS VS239H-P Black 23" 5ms ips-170
Optical drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST-20

Thanks!

Get a WD though. The 1tb Seagate Barracuda only has 1 yr warranty. WD has 2 years. Big difference when the seagate breaks down after a year lol.

I know encoding and stuff needs to have a great CPU but are you a professional that you do it for a living that you really need one?

its ok if he goes seagate, but well if your going with wd caviar go with the black 1tb 7200rpm 64mb cache,

eveyrthing looks good, go with cm hyper 212 evo its a good air cooling.

and the corsair 600t white graphite case it should be an awesome rig

If think the only problem will be the ssd with 128gb if he plans to do such things, i'd go for a 256gb ssd.

Thanks everybody! Would 1 terabyte be enough to hold everything I would need? And I am going to update my ssd to a 250gb. It sounds like its worth it and not too much more expensive. And I am a student training to be a professional. within the next few years I will be, so if I wouldn't have to buy a new cpu in order to do what I want when I go pro I would prefer not to.

Here is the updated build:


Case: Corsair Special Edition White Graphite Series 600T Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower-170
CPU: i7 3930k-560
Gpu: MSI N670 PE 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 670 2GB-360
Motherboard: ASRock X79 Extreme6 LGA 2011-220
Ram: G.Skill Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600-50
Hard drive: Western Digital WD Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB-110
Ssd: OCZ Vertex 4 VTX4-25SAT3-256G 2.5" 256GB-160
Air cooling for CPU: evo 212-30
Power supply: CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX750 V2 750W-110
Monitors: ASUS VS239H-P Black 23" 5ms ips-170
Optical drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST-20

Get the Gigabyte 670 instead. MSI has overvolting controversies.
