Witf is this gonna cost, if you don't mind me asking. I still have the family jewels that I could sell off. So to speak.

lmao
 
well i am limiting myself to $12-$13,000 now this is with a 30inch lcd

might end up being more due to taxes and custom's fees

wow..you must be a rich person.

Well, you know, that mobo can handle xeons right ? They are superior and pure crunching power. And, what about scsi? WAY faster. Think bout getting like some 15k 72 GB scsi's, like 3 for raid 5. And kingston makes HyperX for FB-Dimm, s OR might be stuck with getting Qimonda, Samsung, or Infineon.
And, for mobo, there is Tyan, and Supermicro I beleive. true server class and quality boards.

like i said i am not done picking out the gear as for scsi you right there will be a few drive in to comp
also for ram i was looking at the Crucial 4096MB PC5400 DDR2 FB-DIMM Memory
i am doing alot of research on this i am trying to make the ultimate gaming rig even tho its a server board but its one hell of a gaming one as well


no i am very very poor and i had to save my pennies for this lmao

i wonder if i can get away with 16gb of ram you ask what for well i can say this just to have it :bleh:



nvidia needs to make a dual gpu 280 so i can tri sli them lol wow 6gb of graphics that would be insane:rofl:

You'd think people would have better things to spend their money on certainly not in this case, although bragging rights generally comes at a price. Enjoy the new powerplant of a pc you're gonna build :clap:can't wait to see pics of this beast.

Personally this won't be the best gaming rig :)

While it will be one hell of a rig I'm sure systems of MUCH lower price denominations can perform just as well.
