My System Specs

Default Extreme Gaming PC - ?

Hey guys, you can see the build I have been planning on building for a while now in my signature seeing as the only thing I have bought is the Case so far everything can be changed or upgraded besides waiting for the 300 Series GPU's from NVIDIA.

So if money was no object what would the best PC you could build be for the following:

-Heavy GAMING
-Best Graphics Possible
-Some video editing & rendering (I plan on getting into these types of things in the future)
- I am also a photographer nothing professional I just take HD photos and store them on my PC lol.

So what would be the best build for what I want, Cooling I have already purchased and figured out so just the:

-CPU
-RAM
-MOBO
-PSU
-HDD (SSD?)

I am asking you guys because I clearly don't know as much about computers as some of you lot who I have read have been into PC building for more than 25 years and I would like advice from the experts.

Thanks guys!

how much you want to pay for an Xtreme system, and what is this cooling you have already (p.s. the list on your signature is not what I call Xtreme)

Is it confirmed they will not be out until the end of April - June or is that just a feeling?

That's what always happen on the market my friend. Remember the first 8800 or Q 9000 quad series. If you also concider that now ATI card are rare and new Nvidia card will come from the same factory so stock will be even lower. And the GT300, because they have more transistor will be harder to make compare to ATI 5000 series so less and less availability. There is also something you have to concider toker. There is 2 type of extrem build.
Type 1 : little cock one:P were you buy all the expensive stuff only to tell other my PC worth more then your's
Type 2 : Best Buck for perf one : Where you get the best performance at great price. It dosen't matter to pay 1000$ more for a CPU when you can OC a 350$ to the same LVL.
You see my point? for me a extrem build is only a good and well balanced that have part from the high end section.

..

I may call it enthusiast , but extreme your PC signature is between $ 2-3k , expect to multiply by 3 if you want my view of xtreme. . and that's only for my xtreme view of gpu and infinity 3 * 30" LCD still have to buy the other part.

be ready if you go the Nvidia way, ATI 5970 are $ 700. Nvidia until now have always be more expensive.

are you still on the budget, because I have to spend an other $ 3k on the cooling....

why I will need a 920, they are the past not the future for my light internet use, my I7- 860 is pretty enough, for my gaming, a 920 is not better than my I5-750 , ( for now at least) I wait to see what Nvidia have to offer before buy a new gaming board, I want something with physx . and until that time Intel will may be have a new chipset. Asus are working on some amazing board too .

I enroll to an autocad course. I will need something powerfull this spring for it. so I keep my money for the new 6 cores and a nice Quatro GPU , something sweet for rendering , all true I have already a WS at work, dual xeon and cheetah drive. ( but work computer should not count )
