Starting research for a build to be built in the next 2 weeks or so. I plan to build around the processor. I will be using the CPU for tons of research which leads to 20+ taps open (Mozilla and Explorer open at same time), my small business (1-2 users) lots of emails etc, watching videos online and blu-rays, and I want to have decent sound abilities for music. This CPU will run 12+ hours everyday. I would like it to last at least 4 years with out breaking down. Price is not really a problem since I firmly believe in "buy once and only cry once". However, I would like to keep it under 3K. Here are the must have's: Windows 7 Pro - a must since I hear windows 8 sucks. Here are the considerations: 1150 socket (i7-4790 haswell with a Z87 mother board), or a 2011 (i7-4930K Ivy bridge) . Really hard choice but I'm leaning towards the i7-4790 Haswell. Motherboard Z87 if I use the i7-4790 Haswell. For the 2011 i7-4930 I have no idea yet. Hard drive- looking to put the operating system on a 500g ssd and have a second 2tb WD black drive 7200rpm for storage. Is that a good idea? If using a SSD for the operating system, who makes a great 500g SSD? Video card??? Sound card or just use motherboard??? Currently I have a 6 speaker Logitech sound system. CPU case??? Processor fan??? Ram-DDR3 with 16+ gigs. I need to figure out the fastest and best for which processor and motherboard are used 1600, 1333, etc??? Blu-ray player and software??? Power supply 800w to 1000w. Any ideas on a good company? Multi card reader for camera memory cards etc. Any educated help would be most appreciated. I built a really nice system 4 years ago, but I'm rusty as to new items now available.
