Hey guys, I'm a CoD commentator and I am making the switch from Xbox to PC.

Some guys on the forums suggested this build for my budget the other day, and I think it is pretty good for my uses (Editing/Gaming)

I'm going to order tomorrow so I would appreciate it if you could look over this build :)

:)  nothing should be changed, you already knew 670 2GB vs 4GB and you have decided which one suits you [:russk1]

Yea haha, I decided that I would try multiple monitor gaming every once in a while and it's only $20 more than the 2GB version after rebate :) 

Thanks a lot for your help, man!

by the way you don't need hardly anything to run cod. The build in my sig runs cod maxed out at 60 fps lol.

Definently overkill for CoD. If you got the money and want a super machine, fine. But you could probably get virtually the same performance for a $600 build.

The Intel-i7 chip is the one thing that jumps out to me that is COMPLETELY unnecessary IMO.

Nobody is insulting anyone. Just trying to save money wherever you can. Hell, if money is no object, go for it. I would too. But 32 GB of memory? Cmon.

Lol if you wanna max out cod you might wanna look into a pentium 4 with 512 mb ram. The integrated graphics on the pentium 4 should max out cod at 1440p..../can't help but troll

It was a post of complete Sarcasm. I am just letting the OP no that he doesn't need to worry about getting 60fps with the rig he put together. Thanks for completely ignoring the fact that i was "helping". I guess when you guys see the word "troll" you just go nuts.

What i would recommend (Sorry SR-71 Blackbird, i know you don't like it when i help people). You don't need the X79 chipset. A 3770k is plenty for all your editing and gaming needs. You will save lots of money with just about the same performance. Also, 32gb ram is useless. Just grab 16gb.

You also don't need water cooling because high end air cooling is just as good.

Wow. I just realized you have TWO threads on this forum regarding the same topic. Its not like people were ignoring you, so STOP spamming. The mod says i'm trolling, yet you post TWO topics. Some other people like getting help to. If you can't get all the help you need from one topic then that is just crazy considering you are getting lots of responses.
