Description

This is my first computer build, I was previously an HP guy but I need more power and wanted something that i knew the ins and outs of.

I use this mainly for 3d modeling and rendering, I also do a small amount of image and video processing. I occasionally use this set up for gaming.

Have not had any major issues or problems of any kind, only some minor bugs here and there but nothing that was not easily fixed. overall very satisfied with this set up.

This handles everything with no problems or and blazes right through any and all processes. Preforms with stunning detail in the games and rips right through any 3d renders. Even does live rendering with incredible ease.

Very nice build. How much are you overclocking the i7? Also, does the mouse feel good? It looks strange, but I've heard good things about it.

i have it overclocked to 4.3 Ghz anything over that becomes unstable, i got it up to 4.7 but it crashes about an hour later. im happy at 4.3.

Also the mouse is great, i like the weight of it and how you can adjust the size, I have big hands and i hate little mice, im pretty hapy with it and all the extra buttons makes playing games so much better. also been using the buttons for program specific functions.

If you want to be on par with the new Mac Pro that looks like a shiny trash bin, you're going to have to pair two SSDs in raid 0. Mac Pro has a 1000MB/s read pci-e SSD. Also, paying for your keyboard more than I paid for my 4770k is a bit over the top ;)

well im not really trying to compare to a mac pro here nor do i care about being on par with it, and i am already planning on geting another SSD to do the raid 0. Also got my keyboard 25% off but I prefer the hex core processor because i use multi-threaded programs.

Well given that you spent as much as the entry level Mac Pro configuration, I think it's a fair comparison, as the new Mac Pro will also be used for video editing and 3d rendering.

How did you get the 4770k for under $180!?!?

I actually got the 4770k for $150 including tax and shipping from price matching Microcenter at Staples plus coupons. See http://pcpartpicker.com/b/JCT

Ohhhh yaaaaa... I remember looking at your build before, lol. You mentioned something about the Intel Retail Edge Program and I just looked at a very recent build saying that so now I am curious. What is it?

lol no, I wish. I would have gotten it even cheaper with the retail edge program, but would be stuck with an annoying retail job.
