I just put together the following high end system, for photo and video editing.
The first three components in this list were hand picked to work together, CPU-Motherboard-Memory and water cooling is a must, if your planning to overclock.
The G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 64GB (8 x 8GB) 2133 OC is a match to the CPU and motherboard, its important to use this Ram as other brands may have problems.
When you purchase ram, always buy a matched set, you should never buy say 32GB and then add more down the road.
I've been researching this system for almost a year now, and with tax return money in hand, I pulled the plug and sent off my order to Newegg a few weeks ago.
Don't even think about the Sandy Bridge-E the Ivy Bridge-E replaced it, its more or less the same price as well.
All for under $3000.00 But to be honest I've already added two more SSD and a 3TB HD
