Guys my pc spec. is as below:
Intel core i7 920 stock speed air cooled
MB gigabyte x58-ud7
1 tb wd raptor hdd
3 tb wd black
12 gb ram (corsair 1600)
GPU nvidia 470 gtx
case thermaltake armor+

my question is that should i assemble new pc or should i wait cuz i'm really confused and whether i buy amd 8350fx or Intel and which MB specially for OC :twisted: my usage is for hardcore

gaming - programming - photo editing and video editing and montage .. and what gpu is better specially i'm willing to configure 3 monitors ... and regarding the monitor what is the best monitor

right now for gaming and all the above stuff with good response time as you know 2 ms is the best but it's TN panel and ips better but low response time and not 120 Hz . i will appreciate your

adviceto in light me

Well, first what's your budget? But that aside from what I know...

  • If you're looking for value, then go with FX-8350, as it performs the same as the i5-4670K. Otherwise the i7-4770K is better than the FX-8350 by a good margin, but costs $150 or so more.
  • NVIDIA and AMD are both pretty user-friendly with up to 3 monitors, but AMD currently leads by a mile in value.
  • If your usage entails photo and video editing, then you better get an IPS monitor. 24" TNs will color shift without you even having to move. And honestly, practically half of the monitor specs now are either snake oil or marketing fluff. A response time of 2ms (if we take that) is more than enough to handle 60Hz, which is an interval of 16.667ms. I use an IPS monitor primarily and I've not had a single issue with it.

Actually I was thinking about the Intel 4960 x cuz I don't want a bottleneck pc and in the same time i think it will b the best to deal with my 4k videos editing but I think it's still early to buy it cuz now the z87 have more options than the x79

And about the monitor I saw the ips panel from LG and it's really amazing

If you want power and features, you're going to have to start looking at Xeons.

If you're looking at 4k video editing, then I agree that you should be looking towards dual 6-core Xeon's or better. However, the LGA2011 platform will handle the task, just not as fast, & no Haswell CPU will as good a job as a 4960X with 4k video due to the lower thread count. Also with AsRock Extreme series X79 boards, you also have the option of running an 8-core Xeon, for a "cheap" start-up system.

If hobby, you can easily get away with an overclocked 4960X, but if this is going to be done as a job, you really need to look into Xeon's, Professional Workstation Graphics, & NEC PA301W professional graphics monitor.

For a full custom liquid cooling setup, I would go with something like the Corsiar 900D case. It's huge, but has tons of room pre-designed for custom liquid cooling.

If you're not as adventuresome (like me), the Kraken X60 is practically unbeatable as an AIO water cooler. It outperforms my old Corsair H100 by 12C - 18C :shock:

For hobby, the ASUS 32" 4k monitor would be killer.... but so is its price... but those NEC's aren't cheap either. I had the option of getting the NEC or the Dell Ultrasharp U3014... I chose wrong & got the Dell. It has two big problems, random color temperature shift, and backlight dims & brightens on it's own. Wish I had gotten the NEC when I had the $$$ :( I hear the HP 30" is pretty decent, though I heard the same about the U3014....

There are some really nice high-res monitors though, & if I could still send it back to Newegg, I would exchange the Dell for the smaller NEC PA271W-BK 27" 2560x1440 For $999, it's a really good price for a professional level display.

Asus also makes a pair of really nice 27" 2560x1440 displays:
$599 PB278Q PLS screen
$879 PA279Q AH-IPS screen

The second one is probably the best option to the NEC, it's ASUS's "Professional Artist" line & their flagship 27", the PLS screen is however one of the most popular 2560x1440 displays right now because it's pretty darned good.

If you're serious about triple monitors, go with 2560x1440 displays, & plan on gaming on all 3 at once, then you're going to need Dual Titan's in SLI to satisfy the 11 million+ pixels to be rendered per frame. Gaming on one & anything in the GeForce GTX660-Ti class or higher will work fine & support up to 4 monitors on a single card, that's what I'm using on my 2560x1200 Dell.
