Your stereotypes are horrible: 1.) I could easily afford and SR-2 system, fully loaded. 2.) I'm not a kid. 3.) I'm not jealous.
Maybe instead of changing the argument and then slinging mud at people you could respond to something we're actually talking about...
The U.S. economy is in its worst depression in history, 25% of children are in poverty in the U.S., but apparently it's cool to buy expensive stuff just to say you have it. Sorry, wasting money and then bragging about it is fairly idiotic in my book, no matter how much money you have.
Pretty much this.

Fixed. 25% Unemployment (U3+U6 are always unreliable unemployment figures and under-rated) + 211 Trillion Fiscal Gap + 56 Million in Poverty (Census Statistics fudge the figures by a minimum of 10 Million). Coupled with other economic factors around the world.

However I agree with what you have said. I am also in the same position. I chose recently to purchase a 2700K system and build it without investing in a Sandy Bridge Enthusiast system. There's spending money and then there is spending money for a reasonable or acceptable price/performance ratio. Remember the saying "A fool and his money always part ways".

Good to see you acknowledging the current economic factors. It's always interesting to see the debt-induced binge that many consumers indulge on especially on Black Friday.

Agreed. This is the kind of stuff that keeps me awake at night.

Oh and georgep001, your argument about people "complaining" about SR2/SR3 and wasting just because they "cannot afford it" is laughable. My 990x sub-zero cooled Quad580 system had a UD9 which was a $750 motherboard, quite a bit more money than a SR2 and the whole build cost far more than your SR2 system. Try again.

In other news, if you want to buy an SR3 for gaming have at it. Buy 50 of them for all we care. Just don't post that on a forum like this and not expect any opinions on the subject.

For those of you that actually need/use 2x Xeons with massive amounts of RAM, keep driving on. thumb.gif

as i've said before SR-2 is just not needed for gaming. i have one, i can admit that. i use mine for rendering (and not going to lie, a slight amount of e-peen). if you want to buy it purely for gaming then thats your choice, why not save the money and get out more?

I can't even tell you how pumped I am to have 38 CineBench points in a single rig.

I work at a major VFX house and a tricked out SR3 with twin Xeon E5-2687W chips in it @ 5.0GHz will be roughly equivalent to 3-4% of our ENTIRE render farm (400+ blades).

Correction. This IS the forum to post things like this hence why build logs and etc exist. Understand that this forum and the members amongst it are all here about e-peens and spending money.

I'm seriously getting sick of all these people bringing in "cost" as a major argument for products targeted at enthusiasts. It is a hobby and last time I checked this hobby isn't cheap. The same matter comes to point when you scale the product to the person's income; a person who is earning minimum wage might see this as a gigantic waste of money but a person of lets just say makes "decent" living it might just be a "waste of money" obviously subtracting the "gigantic"

At the end of the day WHO CARES? Let's say someone stacks this board with 128gb of memory, x2 octacores, and the works JUST to play games. WHO CARES? Their money their problem. Why criticize if it's overkill? I bet over the vast majority of owners of i7 don't begin to stress their machines as much as they'd like to believe. It's understandable if they purchase this board with 8gb, platter drives for storage, some low end card etc then THAT's worth crticism, not because they have money.

Lastly let's not bring the economy into this as it's completely irrelevant. You don't go a ferrari forum and claim they are a waste of money and that money should be going elsewhere.

Then you should know that the SR-2 is no better than a lesser single socket PC in a gaming scenario. And if you use it primarily for gaming your either flush in the cash department with no sense or seriously uninformed. You on the other hand are some kid that likes to make up his sig to get attention. biggrin.gif

There's a reason why mansions, RRphantoms, 990x's, and high class escorts exist.
