Hi All,

I'm in the process of building a new PC for gaming, videos and photos editing.

So far, here's what I come up with. I did not follow the PC evolution, so bare with me... All Prices are from NCIX.COM and are in CDN dollars.

Does it make sense? (btw, I already have a graphic card I just bought (xfx 7970)). Also have an external storage NAS.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks

1.Get a TX850M if you want to do crossfire...
2.Get a Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200rpm 64MB cache. Its almost the same as the Black but cheaper
3. And for case, i personally think that the Fractal Design R4 is very good. Its Mid-Tower and sleek looking like the Antec p280...

You can probably just get the i7-3770K+z77 board for editing.
For a case i second the fractal design define R4.

I'd second this over spending money for the 3930K.

Also make sure that Vengeance RAM is low profile before buying.

Hi folks,

First of, thanks very much for your answers... But still have a few questions:


1 - I believe the chipset is different from the 3930k, hence the Z77 motherboard?
2 - What do you mean my low profile memory? Does some memory stick are too high to fit in some cases?

Again, appreciated.

Of course it is, it's available in all pc shops and it's way more cheaper.
Yes it uses a different socket(lga 1155) hence it needs other board, the z77 ones are the ones with more features, they're also cheaper than the lga 2011 motherboards.
It's better to have low profile ram not to fit the case, it will fit any case, but because of the clearance to the cpu cooler.

Thanks,

If I go with the 3770k, I also guess the cooler / heatskin will not be the same?

Also, what memory would you suggest for proper clearance of the cooler?

Sorry if I sound like a noob... but things changes so fast!

1. Yes.

2. It's not the case, but if you plan to use a cooler is where the problems will associate.

G.Skill Ares or Crucial Ballistix.

The cooler you selected is also compatible with the lga 1155, so you're fine.
Get the corsair vengeance lp ram, or crucial ram(most of them are lp), mushkin is also low profile, g.skill ares.

Here's an e.g. all from ncix canada :

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($329.99 @ NCIX)
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-V LK ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($124.99 @ NCIX)
Memory: Mushkin Blackline 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($89.99 @ NCIX)
Case: Fractal Design Define R4 w/Window (Black Pearl) ATX Mid Tower Case ($99.99 @ NCIX)
Total: $644.96
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)


Put in there the psu you had and other stuff.

Thanks!

I read somewhere that I should go for 4x4gb for memory because the 3930k is quad channel (or something like that).

I guess the 3770k is not quad channel, hence the 2x8gb memory?

Also, does the 3770k come with a cooing right of the box (like old proc would do...) or I should really go for a big cooling system?

Latest build:

1 - I pick the Fractal Design R4 without a glass
2 - I pick the WD Black since I already have one, if I want to do mirroring, it would be easier I guess.
3 - I pick corsair Memory since the Mushkin are out of stock on NCIX :( 
4 - I pick the 850W powersupply
5- Also decided to go with the 3770k

Do I miss something? Or it seems a good system for you my expert? :D
