Hello, I am looking to build a nice rig between 800-1000 US Dollars, including price for the OS. On this computer I will be playing and recording games at 1080p and then edit videos through Sony Vegas. I am wondering if going with an older chip for the processor, that was the high end before, will give me more performance for money. For example, if I went X58, I could get a cheaper processor and get a cheap motherboard filled with features like triple channel memory, and 12GB of DDR3 memory at the moment, only costs around 89 dollars. Leave suggestions down below please :o

I'd lean towards an AMD FX-8350 paired up with a good video card. It's $200 or so but it has pretty good video encoding performance. Otherwise, you could go with an Intel Core i5-4670K.

Either way, the X58 platform has been dead for over 2 years now. I wouldn't throw any money into it for a new system.
