I'm looking at building an editing pc in the near future and am gearing mostly towards faster render times. I'm currently running a 2011 Macbook Pro (2.2ghz i7) and from my research it seems the 4930K is the best bang for buck when it comes to price vs performance however I can't seem to find much information on actual render times. Id love to find a really specific test (1 hours prores 422 export for example) I have seen benchmarks but those numbers really don't mean much to me.

If I'm going to build a new machine, based on what i have read, i want to the following:
Intel 6 core processer
32gb ram
Nvidia card for cuda

My budget is $3000 max for the entire machine.

But you could get something good for less than $3k.

Thanks for the help guys this has been great. And as for waiting a bit for the new chipsets, this would be a fall buy so i am willing to wait for sure.

I wouldn't bother normally if it was expected to just be another tiny incremental update. But with $3000 on the line, and if DDR4 and eight-core dies are coming, I think that's definitely worthwhile.
