Ultimate Game Design/Dev PC Build - i7-3860X

Gamers Nexus: "Game developers and designers are running rampant with technology of late, and whether it's real-time ray-tracing or simply designing the most complex, over-the-top games possible, strong systems have become a necessity more than ever. Rendering, encoding, and compiling times can be unbearably slow with the wrong hardware (often taking an entire night for a single, complex scene), thankfully though, this game development PC build does its best to relieve some of that time requirement."

Update:

Typo in the title, should read "3960X," not 3860. Thanks to Motorola for spotting this.

I'm just waitining for someone to say "xbox 360 $200"

This is monstrous... I might build the "cheap" version (not a dev, but an enthusiast).

There is NO reason to buy a $1000 CPU when all your gonna do is play Games.

Now if this PC was to double as a workstation and was gonna do CAD or some other Super high intensity work then yeah but just to play BF3 PC and Warcraft um NO!

Go with a Core i7 2700K or 2600K! Then use the extra $700 saved to get a GTX580 3GB SLI set up or a HD7950 CFX set up and be good to go!

THEN you would still have an extra $200 for a high end KB/M!

or

get a nice mid range SLI or CFX setup like a GTX560ti 448 or HD6950 and overclock them then use the extra cash to buy a triple monitor set-up!

Did you even read the title? The entire purpose of the PC is to perform as a development rig. The first paragraph clearly states that gamers should stick with an i5-2500k or something similar.

It's a typo, that's what it is :P Should read 3960X.
