OMFG!!!!!!! Im typing on it right now!!! And looking at its 17' wide screen! AHHHH
Check out this bad-boys specs. The parts cost-ed me around 1,750 US Dollars, but i got many of these things cheap (From my dads business/business contacts.)
Assembly time: Took me about 5 months due to school pissing me off and having to learn the wiring myself
I have 1 thing to say though - Intel charges outta' the a$$ for those i7 processors.
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 320GB 16MB 7200RPM SATA2 (One that's just sitting around at the house, ill buy a 120GB SDD soon
Graphics: Dual ATI Radeon HD4870 X2 2GB in Quad-CrossFireX
RAM: 12GB Triple-channel Corsair Dominator: 6 x 2048MB DDR3 1600MHz
Cooling: Water Cooling(self contained) - AWSOME!!!) + Fans
Processor: Intel Core i7 2.66GHz x 4 with HyperThreading 4.8GT/s FSB 8MB cache
Mobo: EVGA X58 ATX LGA1366 DDR3 3PCIE-16 PCI-E1 2PCI SLI SATA2 eSATA Dual GBLAN
(Im using a old(very old) rock-solid case from my dads first computer from the 90's.)
*Notes:* Any help with the cooling guys? I haven't exactly tested out this badboy hard-core yet.
Since i cant exactly afford a case - im thinking of just cutting some large recangular slots in this old case of mine. Old case is from like a 1989-1993 version of some old gateway. Im just worried about dust - but i do have watercooling + additional fans(3 of them)(2 on 1 side, and 1 on the back)
I think this will let me get some hard-core programming done. I also have to let my dad work on this so he can boot up some Oracle 250 GB++ Operating systems lol... But all is well with my new baby
