    At least you know that you have a problem, that's the first step :)

    2 grand can buy you a pretty beastly machine. If you take a look at the recent system builder marathon they put together a pretty great machine . . . http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/build-your-own-gaming-pc,3766.html

    You may want to look in to going with a R9 290x instead of teh 780ti for the OpenCL support, depending on the performance in applications you choose, but that article will give you a great start on building your own machine.
  2. For $2000 you could get this beast which has a 4770K plus 16 Gb of RAM for video editing and a 780Ti for gaming. If you have no intention of overclocking then you could switch to a good H87 mobo and a 4771. Like Traciatim said though you mayt want to do some research before you pull the trigger though.

    Just threw this together all round a solid bit of components, will just need to choose a monitor for your system some people prefer difrent makes models e.g. nvidia over amd or amd over intel just a bit of research on parts and advice from the community before you rush into buying something you don't need. Hope this helps.
  4. Hey,
    1) If you can wait for the new MAXWELL cards I do think it will be worth it. No official dates yet.

    2) NVidia is strongly recommended because Adobe Premiere Pro and May use CUDA.

    This list is outdated, but it's all NVidia cards: http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/policy-pricing/system-requirements-premiere-pro.html

    3) Windows 8.1 64-bit is highly recommended (and Start8 for $5)

    4) 16GB of DDR3 recommended (You MAY need more but I'd start with that, monitor usage and see how it goes.)

    5) Motherboard:
    There are some great motherboards for $150. I wouldn't spend a lot more than that.

    6) Monitor:
    I suggest aiming for a 27", 2560x1440 monitor.

    *Heck, I'll just make a build too...

    You could do that or you can get a 780 now and another 780 later

    *The above build is different from others mainly in that I have a great monitor (27", 2560x1440, IPS). This then limits the graphics card I can choose. The Asus GTX770 is still a great card though.

    I have the Asus GTX680 (same as 770) and 2560x1440 monitor. I absolutely would NOT downgrade my monitor just to get a better graphics card. While I do play most games at 1920x1080, I play quite a few at 2560x1440 and they look way better (CIV5, Starcraft 2... basically any top-down, "god" game).

    The high resolution screen also makes a HUGE difference when using video editing and 3D applications due to all the taskbars etc, or simply having two programs open (one left, and one right).

    Other parts:
    1) Motherboard:
    The one I chose is micro-ATX which is probably sufficient for slots, but it's very good quality and has a 5-year Warranty.

    2) CPU: i think most agree on the i7-4770K

    3) CPU Cooler: I recommend the Noctua NH-U12S (wasn't at pcpartpicker)

    4) DDR3 memory: recommend 1866MHz CAS9, 2x8GB
    - for games 1600MHz would be plenty but video editing is more stressful

    5) Case: Nice case and inexpensive (micro-ATX. Does not support ATX motherboards)

    The rest is pretty straight forward.

    *ALTERNATIVE BUILD*
    If you get a more expensive card (at the expense of getting a 23", 1920x1080 monitor) the EVGA GTX780 967MHz model is nice at $510, but I wouldn't go higher as there's probably better things to spend your money on.

    what do you think about monitor ?

  11. dpassenger97,
    I do NOT recommend the monitor you linked above. It's a 21:9 ratio which is wider than even 16:9. It's 2560x1080 (not 2560x1440).

    You'll end up with Black Bars on the left/right for any 16:9 content so in that case it would be similar to viewing a 20" 1920x1080 screen.
