Hello to the community, This is my first post currently I have a q9550 on a mobo with 8gb of ram 4 sata ports and pci express 1.1 needless to say im bottle-necking. 120gb Ocz Vertex 3 So my idea is a for a build that costs between 1k-1.5k USD. I have been debating between a i7-3770k, fx 8150, i7-3930k or i7-3820 Parts I will be keeping the current ssd, all the hard drives I currently have screens, don't need a sound card or gpu like them as well. No i5's Parts I do need 1. CPU 2. Mobo with at least 8 sata ports and one pci-x1 slot that i can get to and the gpu not block 3. H80 water cooler don't like any of the others. 4. PSu 5. Ram was looking to do 32gb in 8gb sticks I do alot of video editing, photo editing and what not and looking for a PC that can handle the loads I've been throwing at this old quad core. I've been maxing the quad pretty easily compressing and encoding. I'm a heavy multitasker i like being able to encode while watching uncompressed blu-ray quality video so its a heavy load need something that can take that heavy of stress. Thank you in advance for all advice.
