Windows 7: Building a PC...

Building a PC...

Wasn't quite sure where to post about this, so I figured the "chillout" room would be perfect.

I'm looking for someone to build a computer with these specifications...

3x NVidia 2xx+ Graphics cards
i7 Processor
Motherboard that supports up to 12GB of RAM & SSD
sufficient PSU
water cooling
very GOOD case..

Dollar limit: 7500$ (Give or take a few hundred, this doesn't include shipping)

My goal is for 6 monitors for multiple working.

I do quite of a bit of programming, along with 3D Modeling, and I enjoy being able to watch movies while I code & create graphics. This will need to be a monster computer.

Nice stuff, but I generally don't trust brands I've never personally dealt with. I bought a few off brands and I regret it 100%. The fans that came with the cases died within a few hours of having the computer on.


I will do a little research on those brands.


I'm hoping people will give me some well known & used boards. Last few computers I've built, I've matched it up myself but have had little problems with them, such as fans not running at proper speeds, CPU Heatsinks not sitting properly, hard drives being rejected, or my favorite, wrong board in the wrong box.

I guess I will build it on NewEgg, and then I'll post it back here and see what you guys think.

If it must be an Intel based board then EVGA would be my choice for mobo and GPU's with factory water!

My skills with building computers are basic; this doesn't include the Water Cooling Kit either.

And a Custom Water Cooling Set from

Custom Water Cooling Kit - Danger Den

Not entirely sure what I'd need via that Custom Water Cooling Kit.

I basically want to be able to OverClock, if needed. Be able to Expand if I need too. Lots of hard drive space, and screaming fast performance. I need to be able to run multiple VM's, Linux & Windows, and other sorts. Plus, brag rights with this would be a must
