So yeah there is basically no budget but obviously looking for realistic builds.

I will be using the desktop as a editing and gaming machine.

Has AMD released any decent CPU's this year I know the FX series are good but just wanting to know of there is anything better.

The only new AMD release are the Kaveri CPUs..which you wouldn't want for this build. The FX Series are going to be here for a while. They still have Steam Roller and Excavator to add into the series so I'm assuming no new line within the next 3-4 years.

I know its not really an upgrade but if I kept my current PC but got the z77 sabertooth and another 570 with watercooling all round would that be ok

Oh crap I forgot I have 2 vertex 4's in RAID0 and a Seagate SATIII 2Tb HDD but I was thinking get the Samsung evos and raid0 them and use the v4's in raid1 what you think?
