Yet youve got 2 SSD's listed in your first post totaling 384GB. Just going off what you said you wanted.

Games will fill up a hard drive faster than you think and with you saying youre doing a lot of video work that youd want the extra storage.

But whatever.

Apart from as stated before no 2nd ssd for recording, a fast 7200rpm drive and decent cache will be fine, something like a seagate barracuda or wd caviar black, i think the seagate is cheaper though so your choice! and also the PSU, i would go for a Corsair AX760 or AX860 (either 'i' or normal) as they are 80 plus platinum not gold, also they look awesome!! Hope that helps

Edit: Also something to think about, the 840 pro is a good drive but the SanDisk 120Gb Extreme is cheaper and faster, Another thing to think about!
Hello, thanks for replying. I had the same thoughts about the OC that I'd be able to get a lot more overclocking done on it compared to the 4770k since the new Haswell gets hot really quickly. I might take a look at an alternative PSU and will look for a mechanical internal drive.

The 840 pro seems to have the highest of opinions on it, lots of recommendation and little RMA counts on Newegg so that's the only reason I am going for it.

If the 4770k and 3930k is on par with gaming, then I guess the extra money is for the uses of the other two cores which in my case will be beneficial? providing that I am on budget after removing my second SSD.

I have an old external, would it be able to handle 1080p video file writes do you think? link is below.

Sorry, forgot to edit to 1 SSD as I am only going to be using an SSD boot drive now and probably will be 128gb. I will manage I think, if not I can get another one later on some time down the line.

That's fair enough go for the 840 pro, for gaming the 3930k will be better than 4770k simply because it has more cores, the reason that people tend to advise i5's for gaming is that gaming isn't very could intensive but more gpu intensive, plus most games don't use hyperthreding! Any way I'm getting off subject, the video rendering will use all 6 cores and the other 6 hyperthreds and will be faster than the 4770k and it's 4 cores and additional 4 hyperthreds! In short yes the 3930k's extra cores would be beneficial!

As for you external drive it would be able to handle the video game writers but it will be significantly slower because it will be transferring over USB 2.0, not SATA 6Gb/s, so best just to go for a new hdd and use that as a backup for everything!

Thanks, in regards to graphics cards since we are on the topic, does SLI systems help video encoding? presuming that I get something like a two way or even three way SLI GTX 660 TI? also do you have any clue what the best way is to cool those as I'd imagine there will be a lot more heat.

Thanks,

Meng

SLI will only help FPS dude. Only cards that help recording are the 700 series as they have a built in a hardware recorder(can't remember correctly from toms review). 700 series is a no brainer for you.

3930k(because you have the money) and a 780 are my recommendations. Mine as well watercool the 780 as well!

Hello, yeh I think I will stick to the 780 and SLI up if I need to in the future and expand my loop but I don't think I will WC them unless if I get SLI.

LOL Why hasn't anyone told you to get an avermedia capture card yet..?

Get one of these and you won't see any framerate drop while recording since the card does your encoding, not your CPU. And make sure you're recording to a Mach drive, recording to a SSD (Even with TRIM) will basically brick it in about 2 months. Trust me, I have some youtube commentator mates and they tried recording to an SSD, don't make that mistake.

Moving along, if you have the money go for the 3930k since it will drop rendering time pretty dramatically (4C/8T vs 6C/12T make a difference.)

Apart from that your basically spot on

Seems like a awful lot of money to spend with a hdd included.. the 10Krpm models won't help very much in recording. Stick with a 64mb cache 7.2krpm hdd.

I would say Seasonic for the psus. EVGA may be a great gpu vendor but I wouldn't trust them powering 2000pounds of hardware.
