in 2011 i build a computer for gaming purposes, now i need upgrade almost everything for 4k video edition and photo. i use Adobe photoshop, lightroom, premiere pro and after effects.

So i have this 3 component in mind:

Motherboard Asus Motherboard X99-A II Core i7 S2011-3 X99 DDR4 http://www.ebay.com/itm/162081338315

CPU Intel Boxed Core i7-6800K Processor (15M Cache, up to 3.60 http://www.ebay.com/itm/191998847720

RAM Corsair DOMINATOR Platinum Series DDR4 DRAM 2400MHz C14 Memory http://www.ebay.com/itm/322256182900

The component i have right now are:

CPU: Intel core 7 960 4 core 3.20GHz RAM: 14GB DDR3 2200Mhz Motherboard: Asus Rampage Formula III Power Supply: 1000W GPU: NVIDIA Geford GTX 960

With Lightroom and Photoshop i dont have problem with this setup but with video the lag its impressive so that's why i want to upgrade my pc.

What do you guys think about those 3 componet?

I was trying to go for the 3000MHz RAM but the CPU only support 2400MHz, i am right with that? or i can put 3000MHz ram with that CPU ? i know the motherboard support that but im not sure if the CPU.

I wouldn't spend that much on ram. Its way overpriced.

You can buy 3000MHZ ram as the X99 board supports it. You just need to enable XMP profile in bios. You can get 2666 ram which is also fine..

Someone with far more experience than I in another thread recommended choosing 5820K over 6800K. The reasoning was that the IPC improvement wasn't that great from Haswell-E to Broadwell-E, and that HW-E typically OCs better. As the base clock difference between the two is only 100 MHz, that might be something to think about.
