Intel Core i7-3970X Extreme Edition Sandy Bridge-E 6-Core 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo) LGA 2011 150W BX80619i73970X Desktop Processor
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This CPU is great and just blows everything away. That 15MB Cache really helps out a lot too. =)

Cons: The price. But for a first build in several years? Definetly worth it if you want something to last. =)

EVGA 04G-P4-3688-KR GeForce GTX 680 Classified 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: All the technology NVIDIA has to offer, 4 GB of RAM which is better than getting a gtx 690, which has 2GB for each GPU, limiting performance in games that demand it or for high resolutions, so SLI is always a plus. Runs everything without a problem on high settings and stays fairly cool. =) LIFETIME WARRENTY

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: As I said before, 4GB for each card with SLI is better than a GTX 690. I see this card as an investment, unless, well, until actually, newer "technology" in cards come out that's actually worth taking a note in or unless games demand an ungodly level of performance, this card is one that will last you MANY years to come. I can run Metro 2033 on the highest possible settings on 1920x1080, with Anti-Aliasing forced off via the NVIDIA Control Panel since I don't see much of a need for Anti-Aliasing at a high resolution, getting a smooth, constant 60 Frames Per Second. But everyone's different.

Intel Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition Sandy Bridge-E 6-Core 3.3GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 2011 130W BX80619i73960X Desktop Processor
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 6 Cores, High Clock Speed, 15MB Cache, Biggest I've Seen So Far, OverClockability, etc

Cons: As many would say, price, but it's the best one on the market in my opinion, so far.

Other Thoughts: The guy below me is nothing more than a troll and probably an AMD fan boy, the fact that he took time out of his day to write a negative review for those reasons says a lot about him as a person.
