if you are not doing video editing or other extensive tasks other than gaming you wont need the i7 or the 16gb. in my build you can take off one 670 to get under bud.
Its not only for gaming.
For other stuff to, need it for editing as well.
thats why went for i7 and 16 Gig ram.
i have a 660Ti laying around i can use that for most of the programs that require Cuda.
So 7970RA one is for gaming.
Elsewise, i wanted you guys to choose the parts that i listed.
Hmm... is the Extreme 4 good with oc? if so. then thats my Mobo
This build is primarily focused on high end, intensive video editing and gaming.The high end gaming PC is going to be something that can run everything at 1080P at high to ultra settings. This machine will burn through any game on the market, and will have plenty of room for expansion as well.
