In my opinion, if you want to cut costs, the lga 1155 is the platform to go, the i7-3770k is superior to the i7-3820, for lga 2011 only the i7-3930k is worth, but it costs more than 500$.
You can see the performance difference between the two cpus : http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/551?vs=523
I recommend going with a 256GB ssd, and just a single 3TB for storage.
A 550w psu will do for the system, a 660 gtx is a good option, but i rather get an asus one, my suggestion :

I agree - the 3820 isn't really worth purchasing.

Honestly - none of the above. The FX-8350 is a decent CPU but for multimedia authoring I'd rather go Intel. The 2700K is outdated, the 3820 isn't really better than the 3770K. The third build has probably your best bet for CPU but that choice of motherboard isn't really the best - it's overrated and very expensive for what you get. You could cut down on the motherboard and put more into the case and GPU.

Maybe try this:

Yeah they're not going to be much of an improvement over what's out now, there's no such thing as future proofing even on workstations. i

That's a good ssd for the price, you can have cheaper cases, the corsair 200R in newegg is a good option, in my opinion.
The rosewill hive modular with 550w will help to cut the costs, it's at a low price in newegg.
You can see here for reviews of the series : http://www.anandtech.com/show/5674/rosewill-hive-550w/6
http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Rosewill-HIVE-65...
http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/rosewill_hive_750_...
There's also the OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W there it's cheaper, see the review : http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/OCZ-ModXStream-P...

Also make sure it's the i7-3770k if you want to overclock the cpu, otherwise the i7-3770 is a good choice + h77 motherboard, like for e.g. : the h77M or the h77 pro 4 mvp fro asrock, they're cheap and offers plenty of features.

based on my not getting many responses i think i went crazy and changed the build again i am very grateful for your assistance since i have no one to throw ideas at

look at this build and what i ask if it is not a problem based on my needs i would like u to do a custom build for me that i can look at


last build

i7 3770k $330

gigabyte ga z77x d3h $134

( i switched from the asrock since no one could tell me if it is a quality board i decided to stick to asus or gigabyte i chose this board based on sata 6gbs and usb 3.0 connections)

g skill 16 gb ares ddr3 1600 $80

(depending on savings i could maybe add another 16gb)

Evga superclocked gf gtx 660 02g p4 2662 kr $230

(looked good)

cosair builder series cx600 $70

(used newegg powersupply finder)

lg blue ray burner $70

(cheapest model on newegg i need to back up the videos i shoot and stock footage ) i wanted to install 2 in fact

crucial 256 ssd $165

( everytime you guys showed me a system it had a ssd so i decided to byte the bullet - i have a usb 2.0 external 2tb i could use that for storage)

antec 300 illusion case$65

( i personally find choosing a case hard so i realised this one well liked and stuck with it )

i hope i didnt forget any thing is appox $1050

thanks again

i am looking forward to your response


also i have to order send to my cousin to assemble and ship to me in the caribbean so i am being extra carefull

i dont want it shipped in parts here and i have to ship backstuff

The asrock extreme 4 motherboard is fine, either the gigabyte, asrock or asus has all the features and quality.
16GB of ram is fine for such needs.
Don't forget to add a cooler if you want to overclock the cpu, like the hyper 212 evo, which is efficient and cheap.
That's all.
