And quit messing with that cheap stuff.
Hehe.. That's just evil. Perhaps I should rename this to "My Dream i7 Build"..

That is one scary awesome board right there though.. I can see that sitting quite happily at the heart of a single-box style virtual server farm, anyone for a large scale corporate network in a single machine?

ARK | Intel® Xeon Phi? Coprocessor 7120X (16GB, 1.238 GHz, 61 core)
Two of these on the previous mentioned MB will put you in the big-boys club. Each has 61 cores with an effective speed of around 75Ghz. If you can't get it done with 122 cores and 256GB of memory, you'll need to move to a mainframe.

The Zeon-Phi is only around $4k each so the non-existent budget shouldn't be hurt.

Duly reviewed, and I'll stick with the 4960X hey..

Quite honestly, the major point in most reviews does come down to performance value. A cheaper product offering all the same as a higher one will always be more popular, and I see absolutely nothing wrong with that.

I just really want the X..

By the way, it was this comparison that helped settle my mind in the end.

Update: For anyone interested, I also just updated the OP.

...and so it begins.

The SSDs and two MSI GTX 780Ti have been ordered, should be arriving within a week. I found really awesome specials on both parts recently, so I scooped them up before all the stock disappeared. Will post pics as the parts arrive..

You are so lucky to get TI's at what they are worth right now they have fallen at least a $100 cheaper here in the states i might grab another over the summer if they continue to be around the $600.00 mark

I won't lie, I was starting to get worried that I wouldn't find the cards.. But I struck it lucky over on the Carbonite forum (South African forum-based selling/reselling community).

Keeping in mind prices here in SA can't be compared too accurately by a simple currency conversion, I'm quite stoked to have picked them up for R8000 a piece ($749 USD straight conversion), especially considering the average price I've seen here is R9000 to R9500.... One PC shop here told me "we can try track them down, but you should know they're like R12000 cards". Suffice to say I walked out of the store at that point.


Oh, and another general update: The courier guy dropped of my SSDs at lunch time, will put up some pics when I get home from work today.

A "little" update to my dream build... (see OP)

I managed to source a brilliant deal with a startup business dealing in high-end PC components. Gotta love those opening specials hey... So.. Motherboard, CPU, RAM, keyboard and mouse are all inbound early next week. I'd best get cracking picking the PSU, case, fans and so forth, hey..?

I'm currently waiting to hear back from a local shop about the screens, for those I'll never rely on a courier. Never say never, but you never know.

I'm going to attempt to get my camera working tonight, so I'll have pics of the 780TI's up soon. I also need to snap the two KFA2 660Ti's I picked up for my current rig.. Oddly cute little monsters, I must say.

Have I missed something?
I have not seen anything on cooling.
CPU/GPU/CASE.

If you want to stay with the same brand why not go with the 900D. Lots more room to expand with.

Look in my specs and you will see the case I have chose.

essenbe and I both use the case and are well pleased.
Reasons we chose this case is for it's versatility for just about anything. Air cooled, water cooled ect.
