its for games video editing etc... im giving my girlfriend my current pc and upgrading for myself. i'm simply interested in if the parts are good parts together. I am comfortable with the price of the parts. And i want to not have to upgrade for a few more years.

No... Go with Cheaper Mobo 1 or Better Mobo 2

Faster Ram Option

Much Better Heatsink

As far as being good for a few years this is throwing your money down the toilet. You would want a 2011 setup which means spending about another 50-100 bucks on a mobo, and swapping out the processor for a 3820 which is 300, same price. That would future proof you well for ivy-e, and give you better performance today, albeit slim. What about other parts? If you are giving up your old computer it would seem you need a monitor/keyboard/mouse/power supply etc etc. I suppose you already know what you want in those categories though. Anyway, gl!

thanks for the suggestions. The only reason i went with the 3770K is based on the charts (http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/cpu-charts-2012/-04-3DMark11,Marque_fbrandx14,3157.html) listed here. I don't even see the 3820 on there. Am i looking at the wrong chart for good info?

As i stated that this is an upgrade for me and my old parts are going to my girlfriend. Am i going to see any type of performance increase with these parts?

So a couple more clarifying questions, and by the way, thanks a lot for your help.


1.) it sounds like i'll see a small performance increase if i go with either of those chips but not much. if you were to get one (3770k or 3820, or even a different one) which would you get?

2.) would you wait to see what chips comes out in 2013 instead?

i don't do a ton of multi tasking so i think the 6c chips aren't really for me.
