My System Specs


In your first post, you mentioned how you are new to putting computers together, which to me demonstrates an overall lack of knowledge when it comes to spec'ing out parts.

Meanwhile, this forum has a plethora of experienced system builders who have been building high end systems for years. And yet you choose to ignore the advice that each and every one of them give you. Next, you'll probably try to discredit Charlie 3.0 by telling him that, no, SR-2's are actually the most reliable motherboards ever made, and will always perform better than an X-79 ASUS board.

Do yourself a favour, arm yourself with up to date tech, and build your computer on an X79 platform with an SSD boot drive. You will never, ever look back.

EDIT: I also disagree with your position on AMD (ATI doesn't exist anymore, it's all AMD now). They're an underdog company when it comes to processors, and on the other side, they make fantastic video cards.
