I love posts like this. Trolling effect is maximum.
As for a serious note on the very off chance OP is serious at all. If you are going to spend 5k on a rig, why would you not get 4 bluray burners. Also why don't you get some Revo drive's Or get a multi mobo system and wire them together? Start a nice little cluster when you aren't using it. Lot's of thing with a computer for 5k you can do these days if you built it yourself. And I 2nd the person suggesting a local forum favorite to make the case.

Have fun.

If that's a serious question, then why would anyone need 4 bluray burners?

Also, a single Revo drive could eat up that entire 5k

[edit]oh yeah, 500th post!

well for this amount of money *** not?
on a related note the Hydro coppers are not worth it at all, just get the reference 580's with blocks and save about 100 per card

Lol at everyone suggesting AMD... There is no way you would get the most out of Tri-SLI with an AMD CPU...

OP, How long until you need this system?

If you can hold out till Q1 2012, then I would say get a 3960X with the new LGA2011 socket board, or with the two of the 46XX series XEON CPU's in EVGA's predecessor to the SR2, they will be your choice to power Tri/quad GPU's...

Most likely if you hold out for either of the above mentioned will most likely keep you 2-3 years, and struggle to bottle an future CPU for sometime to come.

Cheers Ishi

Not trolling, and yes I am serious. You might try being a little less cynical.

I honestly can't see spending over $3000 on a computer without getting tons of stuff that isn't really needed. The one exception would be ultra high end monitors. Those can get expensive fast and are somewhat justifiable considering they are what will ultimately define what everything looks like. No point having Tri-Sli setup and crappy monitors...
