I am building my own PC. I live unfortunately in a small island where everything is overpriced so I have to buy everything from online and the best choice that ships to me without extra tax etc is pixmania.com.cy
So here it is:
INTEL CORE I7 IVY BRIDGE 3770K - 3,5 GHZ - L3 8 MΒ
ASUS MAXIMUS V FORMULA REPUBLIC OF GAMERS - SOCKET 1155
SAPPHIRE TECHNOLOGY RADEON HD 7970 VAPOR-X GHZ EDITION - 3 GΒ GDDR5 - PCI-EXPRESS 3.0
CORSAIR VENGEANCE 4 X 8 GΒ DDR3-2133 - PC3-17066 - CL10 (CMZ32GX3M4A2133C10)
OCZ SSD VERTEX 4 SERIES 2,5" - 128 GΒ
WESTERN DIGITAL CAVIAR BLACK WD2002FAEX 3.5" - 2 TΒ
COOLER MASTER HAF X
I am a graphic designer, video editor, little bit of after effects, adobe premiere, lots of photoshop, corel and illustrator. Amateur photography, with huge panoramas. Gamer.
So what you think about this build?
Anything better in the same price range? REMEMBER I am limited to pixmania website and specificaly pixmania.com.cy
This is more of a gamer oriented build you might want to change things around a bit. First you will want to get w/a x79 socket mono the sue x79 is a fine choice. Then you have to get an i7 3930k or better, because those fit in the x79 socket. Those both are better workstation oriented parts. Next is your gpu you could get a quadro or fire pro at the same price and it will be better for your purposes. Your ram is fine a nice amount is always good. The storage is fine. I did not however notice a PSU you kinda need one of those... And the case is fine. Hope this helps!
