Hello,
I'm building a render and editing rig have a budget for about 2000USD and honestly i could pay more if its something thats going to save me time editing and rendering.

I work 2 Jobs i'm Full time Audio Engineer and Part Time Video Animator and Editor I work mainly with 1080p videos using Canon FX format.

Here is my other parts of the Rig:
Corsair Professional Series AX 850 Watt ATX/EPS Modular
2x Seagate Barracuda 7200 3 TB 7200RPM SATA 6 Gb/s
Kingston HyperX 3K 240 GB SATA III 2.5-Inch 6.0 Gb/s
Corsair Vengeance 32GB (4x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz
Intel Core i7-3820 Quad-Core Processor 3.6 GHz 10 MB Cache LGA 2011
ASUS P9X79 DELUXE LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Now i'm just stuck on the GPU because of the apps i'm using i'm NOT going for a Quadro, just looking for a good GTX thats around 500USD

Most important things are Render Times and Workflow because it edit ALOT of video everyweek (4 hours plus a day) and every hour saved i can relax and enjoy life which is very valuable to me more then a few 100 bucks saved.

GTX 680 2GB or GTX 670 OC+ 4GB

Thx

I don't think that Vram improves rendering times. You'll be fine with 2 Gigs.

The GTX 680 has more Cuda cores, which should improve rendering times.

I watched a video with a guy doing something very similar to you. I'll get to work on a build and see if I can fit that.

If you push down your motherboard to the non deluxe which come with the same raid setup 0/1/5/10 you should be fine.

I guess my own pet peeve would be the SSD choice I would of gone with the Samsung 840 Professional SSD's as they are a stronger SSD and do not use the sandforce controller. But that would be around 50 dollars more per drive for you.

Thanx for all the help i'm actually not 100% sold on the HyperX ssd only picked it because i already have 1 and IF i decide to RAID it i could. but not even 100% sure i will all depends if i need the performance boost i'll check out the Samsung 840 because i did read a lot about them and have read that they do top the charts when it comes to SSDs

Yea you won't be sorry with a Samsung 840 however there is a difference with the NAND between the 840 and the 840 professional which is the one I would recommend. The 840 non pro uses TLC where as the 840 pro uses MLC the TLC version is cheaper. The 840 pro and the hyperx 3k use the same NAND. And if you have 1 3k already I don't see why you wouldn't raid it :)

Also if you remove that drive you already have you can nearly reach the 3930k which would be the superior option editing wise for you.
