Hi, this is my first post in this forum, im from venezuela and buy a decent (not gaming) pc in my country is so expensive that results much better buying a Prebuilt Gaming PC including shipping and all. Crappy PC are about 1200$ in my country.

I'm looking for help choosing where y what to buy.

1)Im not good enough to build my own PC.

2)Im a MMORPG player, also enjoy games like skyrim, mass effect, assassins creed, etc. (I would like to play any game with no trouble)

3)Im studing graphic design and video editing. (for now just need to run fine Adobe Creative Suite 6 Master Collection especially After Effects with 3D)

4)My actual budget is 2000$ (no shipping cost - No monitor) Maybe 2500 if required.

5)I was reading a lot and i think im going with the intel z77 chipset, maybe the I7 to help me with the video editing. im not sure if i really need two or a single Video card (I will love use 2 Nvidia GTX to show off XD but only if really improves the performance). Have no clue about Memory, DDR3 1600MHz-1866MHz-2133MHz (16GB or 32GB)

6)Professional Wiring, Power supply, Cooling system. (I spend a lot of time Playing and working in my PC So i need to be sure it will be resist a couple of years)

Well i think thats all. Txs a lot and sorry for my bad english.

i have also included a 128gb ssd to speed the start up of your pc and your programs.

16gb 1866mhz ram to own up all programs and games.

Run the cyberpowerpc configurator with similar build as above with a 3570K and one 7970 and see how much cash you have left to play with. I had two cyberpowers over the year and liked them.

The sabertooth is just marketing. Save yourself some money and get any of the boards about $60 or so less.

1866 doesn't change much from 1600 - unless it's the same price then may as well.

Think I'd go with a superclocked 670 or 680 (or 7970) rather than sli 660ti.

Even sli, don't need more than a 750e psu.

Nice build no matter what :)

Get rid of the Optical drive (unless you are going to be installing a lot on from there, but who does that O.o)
And downgrade the 2tb hdd to 1tb.

Bam you get your i7 3770k
