And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Sold my system to build a new one because its an addiction.

Ok guys so its that time of the year again to build a new config to scratch the build addiction monkey on your back. Now i have alot of experience but due to lack of experience in rendering which is what im doing now and well the internet has all the answers i wanted to ask all my bretheren at toms for some input.

So i will be doin some gaming such as LoL, BF3, BL2, Saints Row, Hitman absolution Far cry 3, GW2, well every game ever. But i will also be capturing from my xbox and doing some rendering since i find alot of joy of putting it on the youtubez.
