My System Specs


^^^ Spending the kind of coin your spending I'd go straight to the 2011 Socket and the "unlockable" 6 Core Processor. As a matter of fact I'm usually always on the bandwagon for the next best thing, but since putting together my present Rig with the 980X and 580 Classy's I want to get the most out of it ;) Think my mobo is into year 4 ...whooaa!

When I was considering going to the 2011 Socket, was going to go with 6 Core unlockable CPU 3930K (not extreme this time) and had my eye on the Asus Rampage IV Extreme Mobo. As for GPU's, would throw in a couple of 680 Classifieds (w the 90mm Fans), 16Gb RAM is tons, Corsair 1.2 kW PSU and decent Case...done deal. Bootable SSD, SSD for Gaming and a decent WD Black for Porn ;)

You'll love that Dell 27" 2560 x 1440....awesome monitors, takes gaming to a whole new level for me (coming from 1920 x 1200 Res), would have gone for the U3011 2560 x 1600 Res, but I was able to get the 27" for $750 vs $1500 for the 30".

Firestrike Extreme: 23.772K
Timespy: 18.613K
MARK 11: 40.185K
