  1. So that's like 1800 tops if you spend time looking for deals and if you are spending that kind of money you need to step it up.

    3770K
    2x 7970
    2 or 3 tb HDD
    2x256Gb samsung 840 pro raid 0
    that will get you closer to your "goal"

    but I would maybe look into a 2011 system instead

    3930
    appropriate motherboard combined with the rest of the parts you selected
  2. ok so i have decided a asus rampage 4 formula with a but what about the cpu will a 3930k do it
  3. also do you mean two 256gb with a 2 or 3 tb or just one of each
  4. Best answer
    just one of each, hey the rest of your build looked plenty fine just step up to the 3930K BUT if you are only gaming to hell with it keep your build but get a samsung SSD
  5. im going to be gaming to hell and back so i'll add the Samsung and eventually a custom loop

  7. Definitely don't get a 3930K for gaming..It's a complete waste of money! No games use 6 cores... The 3770k will match or beat the performance of a 3930k... Considering its a 77w part against a 130w, the 3770k is a MUCH better choice for gaming, seriously...
    Here is a benchmark comparison:

    You'll notice the 3770k beats the 3930k in games, and only loses by a small amount in heavily multi-threaded synthetic benchmarks that use the extra 2 cores of the 3930k..

    Just go with the build you listed in your first post, just with a 3770k!
