I am completely out of the loop on what components are a good buy these days. My current system is beginning to show signs of aging, and it's time to think about replacing the whole thing. After putting together a rough list of components, I figured I'd run it by you guys so I can be told that I'm wasting money on things I don't need (the lower the price, the better).
Primarily, I'm looking for a system for: Gaming, Photoshop, Adobe Premiere, Adobe After Effects.
Please, show me where I'm being an idiot in these choices
The rough components I've thrown together are:
Intel 520 Series Cherryville SSDSC2CW480A3K5 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
COOLER MASTER HAF X RC-942-KKN1 Black Steel/ Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
G.SKILL Sniper Gaming Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9Q-32GSR
COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M2 RS720-SPM2D3-US 720W ATX12V V2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
EVGA 04G-P4-2690-KR GeForce GTX 690 4GB 512-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
If you want to cut the cost, with minimal loss of performance get an i7-3770k, it's better than the i7-3820, just a bit slower than that cpu.
A 256GB ssd will probably be suffice, if it's for 1080p(gaming) a single 670 gtx will do just fine.
My suggestion :
