Help me to get the best :)


Point Blanc
knew about X79 chipset and its support for 64 GB RAM, but that does not mean proccy support that much of RAM, I am talking about 2nd gen or 3rd gen core i7 proccy, only extreme series proccy have been reported to work with 64 gigs of ram.If I take up such config, I will have to include such proccy, not very sure of ability to keep the price limits. will calculate up for below proccy

Intel 3.3 GHz LGA 2011 Core i7-3960X Processor | Processor | Flipkart.com
ASUS P9X79 Motherboard vs ASUS P9X79 PRO Motherboard vs ASUS P9X79 Deluxe Motherboard vs ASUS Rampage IV Extreme Motherboard: Compare Motherboards: Flipkart.com

Core i7-3960X - 61525
Mobo - varied range from Asus - 20-30.5K
3768 - 8GB RAM module = 30144 (64 GB)
3719 - 8GB RAM module = 29752 (64 GB)
3924 - 8GB RAM module = 31392 (64 GB)
7992 - 16GB pack of 2 8GB stick = 31968 (64 GB)
24 GB will cost ~ 22.3 - 24K

Monitor - Dell U2412M 19.5K
U2311H/U2311HM ~ 14K
NZXT Phantom ~ 8K or OP's choice
GPU starting from 10K or anything based on requirement. there are even workstation GPU like firepro V4800 in 10K
750W + PSU not sure what to recommend actually as OP has not mentioned about GPU what kind he wants and certainly do not want to blindly put a high rated GPU
DVD burner 1.1 K from Asus
other options are 8K Asus blue ray burner or 6K LG blu ray burner

Cooling options -- certainly will required liquid cooling likes of
Additionl fans -- number required do not know will be based on the chosen cabinet

whole rig quiet easily touches 1.5 L and may cross it by little bit

In the zone
why go for a i7 3960x?
op could go for i7 3930k @ 39k because perform,ance difference between the two is not much except in memory limited situations (due to lower cache)


Point Blanc
I do not know the availability and pricing of 3930, basically suggested idea is core i7 extreme supports 64 GB not normal core i7


In the zone
even a i7 3820 will support 64 gb ram
all lga 2011 proc essors (i7 3820,i7 3930k,i7 3960x)
will support 64gb
it only depends on the number of ram slots the selected mobo has
