Windows 7: Help me build my dream system

Eric,
For sure I would use the EVGA mobo and then Tri-SLI the EXGA GPU's with factory water. I would think you could use just one 1500watt PSU and get all into a Corsair 800D. Premium Corsair ram and then go with two 258gb Real C300 in raid and then several 3tb WD's in raid.

In terms of SSDs, I would use a normal e.g. Vertex2 of 60 to 90GBs for the OS and then a Revo drive for fast data operations (e.g. video editing). For the OS, a Raid setup does not buy you a lot because the access time is always 0.1ms - Raid or no Raid. And a single SSD is plenty fast for the OS.
There are much bigger Revo drives, but they cost real money. For the bulk data a couple of Raptors may do fine. But I would not buy HDDs over 500GBs - too fragile and also slower than smaller ones.

Question: How much does a murderbox cost?
A complete murderbox starts at $6,000USD and goes up from there, depending on the amount of custom work involved.
A well appointed murderbox with a single liquid cooling loop, GPU and a few drives typically comes in around the $7,000USD mark while something on the level of Daniel's 008 build is in the neighborhood of 2-3x that. Every murderbox is executed to perfection it really comes down to degrees of "ultimate".
HAHAHAHA umm

Wild stuff. Makes sense to build one's own but without the custom cnc'd and laser etched box or the cool led drive displays and acrylic up lighting.

OK we have a winner i want one. Not sure I'd go with alll the cards but everything else is VERY impressive I think.

It has the right manufacturers, well at least the ones I prefer especially the Mushkin I've always like it since my DDR500 Redlines in my first 939 build. Evga well as far as I'm concerned enough said there.

Now if I could just get him on the phone I'd be all set except for the LCD's
Even sounds like he might be somewhere near Texas lol.
Thanks. Fabe

The guy in the first video will build you a custom PC if you leave him an e-mail.

I guess I have never understood the desire to build a computer with no budget whatsoever. Regardless of what you buy, in 3-4 years time, it's outdated. So, why not build something solid that lasts 3-4 years and then rebuild something then? It sure will save lots of money now.

Well 3-4 years is a long time.
I've had this one ever since the socket 775 came out. I don't have any desire to continue to build system after system and one like showed would last me at least 5 years so by then I'm hoping I'll be in a position to need office systems and a server.


Besides I just really wanted to see what was out there. In a couple of months the CPU's will be last years news and the graphics are already.
So I can see your point as well.
