    This sounds like an awesome set-up. Especially that video card.

  8. I'm really confused why you went k95, but just to let you know, buying that capture card, it won't give you much more better quality if any, and you better be buying a splitter because that lags like shit.

    Capture Card will allow for streaming and recording of external devices, including one of my screens, and reduce the load on my cpu ten-fold.

    So it is worth it.

  11. External devices? I can do all of that and more with fraps, dxtory, msi afterburner etc., and my i5 still runs games perfectly.

    Xbox360 etc.

    And yes, I will have no problems with my i7 6-Core. But it's still nice to know I can record with no stress on CPU, allowing my game to be on MAX settings, and stream in 1080p ;3

    Not as good as made believe. And eitherway, I have faith in Sandybridge.

    I do have one question. How much did this cost?

  16. You rather have a i7-2600 or etc than a i7-4770?

    All in all, £3,000 // $4,500 (This includes warranty and some other stuff)

    Intel® Core™ i7-3930K Six Core

  18. You said that you like Sandybridge, and that is the 2000's series. My opinion, the Hazwell i5 and i7 are perfect for next gen and video editing.

    The i7-3930K is SandyBridge.

  20. The Ivy bridge processors have some of the best specs before the Hazwell. Sandybridge (that processor souldn't be sandy) is a very lacklustered version of the Intel Processors. The only really good Sandybridge processor line was the Xeon's.

    No, just paying warranty to ensure everything is covered (= costs extra)
    Then paying delivery etc.

    I'm confused then, because if you built it yourself then how did it amount to $4,500?

    I checked every part individually and found the lowest prices for them and got $3,170.. No way warranty costs $1,320.

    Unless I missed something, it just doesn't add up?

    Costs about £2,700 UK for individual prices, then with delivery and insurance, adds up to £3k, the $4,500 is my guestimation of US Prices.

    Extremely confused. I must have missed something when pricing everything. My brain is fried trying to comprehend why it cost so much. Maybe the euro sites are more expensive.
