Need some help with some build planning

Ok i have been wanting to do a new build at income tax in february,cause i have been having problems with my current rig,i have to turn off turbo core to keep it from overheating,i have at least 6 games(if not more)that will not work without a lot of work due to incompatibilitys with my CPU,and on top of that it BSOD once a week.


Here is my current rig.

I know you guys will automatically say that is not good for gaming,but i don't plan to just game.
Here is what i want out of my computer setup,I want to run 6 screens(3x 1080p,3x 1280x1024)because i tend to have a lot of stuff running,like 15+ programs,and 15+ tabs across 2 browsers,i plan to game mostly at 1080p,but i may play some racing games triple screens but that is the only time i will triple screen game,but i am also planing on start to really work hard on my youtube channel,so i will need to do a lot of video editing,i also want to teach my self coding,audio editing and creation,3-d modeling,and other stuff to improve myself.
Also with this upgrade i do not want this chipset for a good long time,that is one reason why i want 2011-3,because i want to try and do with it like a lot of people did with X58 and the 1366 chipset,and mabye make it last upto 7 years before another chipset upgrade.
Oh also i will not budge on the case i want i saw it and fell in love with it.

You have got quite a strong base of a rig to begin with. Unless you are really have the need for a workstation 2011-e is very pricey.

270x's in crossfire will be a headache. Plus remember that memory is shared - 2gb will be shared by both gpu's. >> is an upgrade built list. use your existing cpu, mb, matching ram, psu.

Nothing wrong with your current cpu. Overclock it, you have the board to do it (and cooling with the above parts list). If you feel  the need perhaps look into one of the new low power FX chips ~ 8370 as an upgrade. Eight cores should be enough for a long time I reckon.

Dont need a killer cpu to write code with. Even heavily bloated ide's like VS2012 run fine on shitty old core2's with 1st gen ssds.

my 2c anyway feel free to ignore.


Well the reasons i wanted to upgrade most of the rig was,not only the problems i have been having with it,but it is also the fact i have a feeling in my gut that i just don't like me current rig very much,i think it is mainly because i i settled on 90% of the parts in my rig,weather it was money burning a hole in my pocket so instead of saving for a little bit longer to get what i really want,i settled and ended up getting some thing cheaper,or they were sold out of a part i really wanted,so instead i settled on different parts.

And i get a feeling of regret for settling when i look at my rig.

You definitely already have a strong rig. All I can see is that if you're going to be running multi-monitor gaming for the racing games you could upgrade the graphics card(s).

You definitely don't need a new rig, but you should work out what's causing all those issues, and sort that out.

You say that you get a feeling of settling, thinking it was the money burning a hole in your pocket that caused you to buy. Looking at your current rig and what you want, I'd say the money is burning a hole in your pocket now!

I kinda feel you want retail therapy rather than need a new rig. You seem to be wanting to buy a whole new rig, when you say it's your CPU causing problems(which i kinda doubt). You definitely don't need a new case and psu for example, unless you want two rigs up and running? Definitely don't need a 1000w psu now, and didn't before.

You current rig should be able to run everything you need, except in the graphics department for multimonitor. You will not see your money's worth with this upgrade. You will render videos a few minutes faster maybe... Coding can be done on a netbook, audio work can be done on any old pc, 3d modeling can take a bit of graphics power, but you don't need a new rig for it. Also those interests seem a bit spread out, pick one and stick with it for a bit.

You also say that you want to get this rig and have it last up to 7 years, yet your current set up seems really really new, and you already want to replace it.

Sorry if it seems like I'm digging into you here but it seems like you're wasting your cash. Only thing you seem to need is a better gpu maybe, but you're getting the same one...unless you're going to xfire both(i dont have much experience with that)?

If you wanna blow your cash I'd recommend getting a better gpu, upgrading that driving force to a g27, and getting a good monitor mounting system for your 6 displays.

Just my advice, but I assume you're going to get this rig anyway, so, if so, put a better gpu in it and dile back the psu and a few other things to make up the cost.



if you want a big drive use one of these instead of the Seagate,6000000

I don't plan to multi monitor game much,just some times when i feel like it,95% of the time i will be gaming at 1080p.

I know my overheating is due to be using the stock cooler,as for the games i know for a fact that Crysis not working is caused by my cpu,because the steam verison runs in 32bit,and the 32bit does not work,i have to get ahold of some of the 64bit files including the EXE and replace the 32bit files with them,the other games i have no clue what is causing them to not work,with the BSOD i have only seen it BSOD twice,but every other time i came back to my pc with it at the log on screen,but of the 2 i saw they were both different one said "PFN_LIST_CORRUPT" the other was some obscure file deep in the AMD folder.

I had gotten the 1000w psu because i had a 7970 when i first got this rig(before the 7970 died),when i built the system i HAD planned to have the 7970 i had then pick up a second one later then mabye a third even later on.but stuff happened,and the reason i pick the 1000w for the new rig was because one it was only $20 more than an 850w i would have plenty of room for any small upgrades plus it will turn off the PSU fan under low and medium load,also when i do the upgrade,i had planned to pass my current rig to my sister so she can upgrade from her q9450 and 4gb ram.

My rig was build early 2012 so it is almost 3 years old,i did just get the 270x a few months ago to replace my 7970 which was killed by a liquid cooler,so it is not all that new.

I was planning on keeping the 270x in my current rig,AND buy a second 270x and Xfire them.

I like my driving force GT just fine for now,and down the road it do need to pick up a monitor mounting system,but for now i am fine with leaving my 1080p screens on their stands and i planned to place these behind the monitors and set the 1280x1024 on top of them.
