Okay so from my previous question I've learned that my computer is completely overkill, so. Can anyone suggest a computer build thats specifically for gaming but other applications as well. My preference is max settings, (On all games) resolution 1920x1080 and I need to have PhysX so it probably will have to be an Nvidia card I was going to buy a 680 4GB then buy another later on and SLi them. If there are any other preferences you need to know just ask I will reply ASAP.

Here is my previous build.
CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-3930K Six Core 3.20 GHz 12MB Intel Smart Cache LGA2011
HDD: 1TB SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 7200RPM Hard Drive (Single Hard Drive) (Single Hard Drive)
MEMORY: 16GB (4x4GB) PC16000 DDR3/2133mhz Quad Channel Memory
MOTHERBOARD: Asus P9X79 Pro Intel X79 Chipset, 3-Way SLI / Crossfire supported, 4 Channel DDR3 ATX Mainboard w/ 8 RAM slots, UEFI Bios, BT GO, SSD Caching, 7.1 HD Audio, GbLAN, USB3.0, SATA-III RAID, 4 Gen3 PCIe x16 & 2 PCIe x1
SOUND: HIGH DEFINITION ON-BOARD 7.1 AUDIO
VIDEO: AMD Radeon HD 7970 3GB 16X PCIe 3.0 Video Card

Price: £2080 (British pounds not euros) - $3200
Please don't link me to any other part of tom's hardware. XD

Could anyone suggest any applications in which that build above would lag? Honestly I don't see what is wrong with it. A must have need for my new build is that it must be able to handle an insane amount of stupidity, say me spawning 1,000 dragons on skyrim and not have any lag or have a 200 man war. Crysis 1 playing with 50,000 crates physics and what not. Oh and APEX destruction module I really want to play around on that but my current gaming comp cannot run it for crap. XD

Thank's for reading and sorry if I'm almost retarded when it comes to this, I'm new to it! Give me a chance!

Oh also, my budget is £2200-$3450.

If you just bought a overkill rig, why do you want to spend another $3000? That's like $6000 down the drain.

Not really the answer to my question... :S But I havn't bought it yet sorry if I mislead you. XD I've just made it on a site and I asked a question on here about it and everyone says it is overkill. :S So I was wondering what would be a good comp?
January 28, 2013 6:53:58 PM

Ok they are probably talking about your CPU. For $3000 a single graphics card solution is not the way to go. If i HAD to spend $3000 on a gaming pc (i wouldn't lol) I would get 4 way crossfire 6gb 7970's and a 3770k.

and i5 3570 or an i7 cpu. on a sabertooth or asus pro mb. 16g of ddr3-1600 ram. evo 212 cooler. a 670 gpu. a 120g ssd main drive and 2-4tb data drive. in case of your chose with a 750w seasonic power supply.

So my CPU is the overkill part?

Choosing Intel® Core™ i7-3820 Quad Core 3.60 GHz 10MB Intel Smart Cache LGA2011 reduces the price by 300, would this be a better option?
January 28, 2013 7:11:35 PM

yes it would be. Although i think an even smarter choice would to getting a Z77 and 3770k. Also, is this a build, or a prebuilt like cyberpower? You will get ALOT more for your money if you just build.

I'm only 16 not saying that out rules me to be able to build a computer but I don't think I could, haha. Plus whats a Z77? and I built it on cyberpower would u like the configuration link?

an example would be I'd be afraid to install watercooling it looks complicated.

High end air cooling is just as good as watercooling. Also, if i was 16 id build a $1200 gaming pc and save $1700 towards a car lol. If it is for gaming get the 3570k, z77 mobo, 8gb ram, gtx 670 or hd7970, antec neo eco 620w psu (made by seasonic) and after that you can't really get a better gaming rig unless you get multi gpu setups.

Would it be able to run 3D software (I'm thinking obviously) and I want the Nvidia 680 4GB due to its PhysX because i want to play around with Apex Destruction Module :p

If you are doing 3d software get the 670 and a 3770k. No need for 680. The 3570k is purely for gaming as the 3770k will give you same performance in games.. the 3770k is for video rendering and cpu heavy apps.

Unless you are running lots of monitors you don't need 4gb. Besides, there is also a 4gb model of the 670 for a little bit more if you really need it.
