Well lets say I want to build "THE" top of the line pc with all the new architectures coming out.

Here are just some of my ideas for components, not an intel man, so dont even go there....I dont care if you hate on AMD, but theyve done a lot for me over my 15 yrs experience, so Im sticking by them.

Items Planned
CPU -Fastest BD by clockability

GPU - a set of Crossfire fastest 7xxx series cards by clockability(plus TONS of ram, cause I love 32x wide-tent AA.

MOBO - Crosshair Formula V 990X board(Unless something better arrives by BD's launch...

STORAGE - 2 SSDs in raid(please someone suggest a top performing brand size and price do not matter, only sheer performance)

COOLING - 1 or 2 closed loops, if 2 one for the cpu and one for the dual gpus

Peripherals - Need a suggestion on a solid performance wireless mouse/keyboard

RAM - 16gb 1600 DDR3Ram...dont need this much, but hey, when building a beast like this, id slap 160 gigs of ram in it if I could lol.(not really....)

Case - I need A good case solution that has 8 pci slots in the case. I need this because I may buy the extender for this motherboard to make it 3-way x-fire.Looks and Price do not matter, only functionality with cablke management, and a lot of room, are required)

PSU - I know little about PSUs..what would the community suggest for such an application, especially considering I may upgrade to OC'ed Three way Gpus with and OC'ed BD, im sure thats gonna pull some power....

Thanks for any help guys

2 SSDs in RAID removes TRIM which is important for longetivity
Just get one superfast SSD (i.e. one of those new Crucials which do 400MB/s); better for speed in the long term, and longetivity.

Might as well get 8GB of (faster) RAM than 16GB also if you're not going to use it.
Lancool K58W is a good case with 8 slots that's been on sale recently for $55; it also has great cable management and lots of room. I used to own it

If you're going quadfire or something like that I'd say at minimum you're looking at something like a Corsair TX950 (enthusiast 950W) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139013 The HX1000 (modular 1000W) is $220 AR but the 950 is only $145 AR although the modular PSU's are nice..... I'd say get the HX if money is no object (which I'm suspecting is the case here with that kind of budget) otherwise go with the standard TX.

Also, if your looking to buy now maybe get an SB. It's one thing to be a fan of a company but another to just blindly follow them.

As for case the K58W is nice and I'm planning on picking one up myself in the coming weeks. Another two I'd suggest might be the CM HAF X, or Corsair Obsidian 800D.

Dont raid ssds, youll lose trim support and speed over time.

Dont get the hx1000 as.its a bad psu, the tx is much better but not modular, you shoukd have a look at the recommended psus in the psu section.

Its not so much blindly following them, as having a little fanboyism and not caring if the end result is slightly subpar(now if the BD is GREATLY under intel, then I will go SB.

Elpida Hypers don't come in 4GB DIMMs
Neither do they come in anything below 2000 8-8-8, at least in (most?) SuperTalent kits

On the current platforms 2000 CL9 is quite a waste, 1600-1866 CL6-7 provides the same kind of performance and is cheaper & easier to stabilize
