$3000 High End Gaming/Streaming/Video Editing PC

I decided to put together a $3000 high end gaming/streaming/video editing system because that's what I like to do. Max out WoW, Skyrim, BF3, Crysis, SC2, D3 etc; with high fps and streaming/recording while doing so. Will this system do that? Accepting any feedback. http://pcpartpicker.com/ca/p/qQ2y

OS: For what I want, would I need professional or is home premium good?
PSU: Would I need a 1000W psu or is my current one fine?

  1. everything looks fine with me other then the cpu go with the 3930k and save ur self the extra 500$ and u can get another 7970 with that :D
    the 3930k is just about the same the only difference is that the extreme has like 3 more cache i think not worth the 500$ if all ur doing is streaming and playing games/editing stuff
    also if u cant crossfire the cards pick up a bigger ssd video editing will go faster on them

    3930k isn't compatible with motherboard or ram.
  3. Build is unbalanced.
    - The CPU is like 2-3 generations behind and is way overpriced
    - No noticeable difference between 1600 and 1866MHz of RAM
    - SSD looks questionable, haven't really heard of it before.
    - Unless you have something like a $400-500 audio system, you don't need a discrete sound card; the onboard audio is good. If so, you'll need a better one around the ~$200 range.
    - You'll want a 120Hz monitor, trust me.
    - Home Premium can support up to 16gb of RAM.

  7. I would recommend this build http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2nYLO
  8. If you're going with an AMD GPU, I'd get the 280x. Around the same price, but newer and slightly more powerful. Also, if you're not a Windows 8 hater, the normal version of Windows 8 (not professional, $89.99) has room for 128Gb ram or so, which could also save you about $50, but from what i'm seeing, money is not a concern here :P
  9. Since this person is using it for gaming, it windows 8 would cause a lot of problems so thats why I recommend windows 7
