HURR DURR I DIDN'T READ THE THREAD OR THE OP!

He's using this for a client to have some sort of immersive gaming(?) experience. The actual computer is around 5k, the surround sound and projectors are around 3k. He's also going to be pushing a crapton of pixels through 3 GTX 580s ($1500) which he needs to do both 3D vision and surround at the same time while maintaining a perfectly smooth experience. He has no other options, because if I was the client business and got something that didn't run silky smooth 100% of the time I would want my money back.

OP: one of the easiest ways you can cut some money out of this build to go for higher quality projectors is changing where and what kind of speakers you get, the audio subforum will likely drool over your sound budget and give you some great advice.

He said he could go up to 10k. Did you read my post or are you just chilling out with a spliff?

The "guaranteed" to work you're looking for is there. When you've built alot of systems you will understand that you have to be prepared for something to not work on every build. What I am saying is that this system doesn't have the issue where it needs matched pairs hence they don't sell many matched pairs.

The "guarantee" you think you have is that manufacturer's send out bad parts every day. You're much more than likely to get a bad part than to have sets not operate together.



I've built more computers with other people's money than most and honestly I don't screw around with something if I'm not confident in what I recommend. I recommend things, because I've tried them. I'm not a retard and posting my best under-educated guesses like 99% of the posters on OCN.

Lol three game coupons.

I thought you'd need separate orders for that, guess not.

I agree about the part that u are more likely to get a defective part then 2 sets that don't work together... I am also in the same boat as u in that I have built many custom PCs... I just like to be cautious (same reason I tend to include 120 worth of rad extra in WCed PCs I build)... @OP, most likely the sets will work together fine, I just like to get one big set because if it even slightly doesn't work, you can RMA the entire thing for sure... If 2 sets don't work together (on the very off chance that is the actual problem) there isnt realy anything u can do but hope to exchange on set... It's realy up to u, I just like to be extra careful
