My System Specs


Peer pressure is bad, you know =P

I want this rig to last as long as possible. Gaming components tend to fail earlier than professional components. Xeons are built to last.

Lots of ways aren't the best to go when it comes with computers. For example, on that loadout you have, OCZ SSDs have been known to fail the most of all. (High failure rate of OCZ SSDs yields answers that raise troubling questions | Windows Secrets Lounge) Not to mention RAM, as I've said, over 1600mhz is a ploy for rich script kiddies with their parents credit card numbers to spend more for tiny gains in performance.

Just the way you can pick apart my configuration, I can pick apart yours. I will have 16 cores, you will only have 12. Both of mine (if everything turns out okay) will be running at 3.5GHZ. 16 cores at 3.5GHZ vs 12 at 4.5.

Its a matter of preference.
