It’s a matter of best bang for the buck (see Builds below) I game maybe 7 hours a week the rest of my computer time is spent converting Videos of our children’s latest band, march riding dirt biking etc.. whatever, when I am working my computer is folding/SETI full time so good cooling is a must and I considering getting into mining bit coins but that will just be a hobby when I am bored and have beaten all the games I play which are EQ2, D3 and guys from working trying to get me into Eve (I game at 1920x1080)

If I get a single GTX 680 I can get a 3770K on Z77 MB 2x 120Gb SSD 16Gb of ram
If I get a 3570k I could get dual GTX 670 on Z77 MB 2x 120GB SSD 16 GB of tam
If I get an X79 3930K I would only get 8 GB for the motherboard and a single GTX 670 with the 2 x 120 GB SSD
I have a hard limit of 2500 and about 300 of that is ear marked for a new router and NAS box for backup.6 years ago we decided my yearly bonus/Tax return is to be considered free money it is our once a year splurge and we alternate who it goes to last year it was my wife and this year it is mind to spend on something foolish so it isn’t a matter of buy half now and the next half later this is my once a year spending spree no hold bars and I won’t do it again till Dec 2014 so I have to get a complete system with a monitor, and be able to last me three years.

I think this is a Perfect build for gaming/Video Editing I think you will love it. I dont know much about monitors but since you are editing I suggest 2 monitors. Tell me if its too much or too little :)

Note if you plan on doing any Mining for bit con's then you should go with AMD as there direct compute is much better than nvida right now.

Like mrdowntownkiller's build (with the ikaz's recommended 7970s if that's the case with mining).

Seems like you're trying for overkill simply to push a price point. Will be fun nonetheless!

I am not Discounting anything MDTK posted I am thankfull for his input but he glossed over my question I have already picked out my options I am only looking for the most bang for my bucks of the options I selected, I picked that MB because it has TB and BT two options I want and I picked dual 120G SSD so I can do raid 0 now that it is support by Intel 7, good to know about the bitcoin being faster on ATI but I am green to the core ATI burned me once before so I swore never again.

In that case I think build 2 and 1 would be the best sli 670 beats 680.

I did more research and depending on who you ask or which driver you use the 7970 beat the GTX 670 or the GTX 670 beats the 7970 more research is in order.
