I want the highest quality stuff... don't care too much about water cooling... don't feel like putting it all together and i'm pretty sure that air will do just fine (I don't need my components below freezing just because they can be)

Anything I should change?

you dont need two optical drives. you dont need all that ram. you dont need a 600 board, or a 400 psu. and u can buy a better cpu then the one listed.

Don't get 64Gb of RAM, drop it down to 16GB,

Do you have more than 1 monitor? if you do, say you have 3 monitors, get 3 7970's since there better at higher resolution for games.

I would recommend dropping down to 2-3 SSD's and getting a 4TB hard drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822236353

If you have everything you need.

GET 4 680s or 7970s and a nice cpu and board a couple nice SSDs in raid and your good to go. All that wont consume a full 6000$. If you were watercooling it may come close.

Hello cheesling,

I do apologize for the somewhat rude response you've gotten since coming here. We merely wish to suggest to you that it is not in your best interests to spend so much on a computer when similar or identical performance can be acquired with less than half the budget.

However, if you are intent on spending a full $6000, then you have selected the most expensive and powerful components from each of their categories. A few things to note, however.

Quad GTX 680's at max overclock and a 3930k could all run just fine on an 850 watt unit. There's no need for one twice as powerful... redface.gif

Nvidia's GeForce Titan comes out in just a few days. Let's see how powerful it is, and then get a couple of those instead? redface.gif

OCZ Vectors are indeed one of if not THE fastest SSD for the consumer right now. Good choice. Those things haul *** make no mistake about it. Four is a tad unnecessary, but haha whatever.

Please respond with any other questions you may have.

Post a picture of your current setup or something, you wont get taken seriously on any forum without at least some proof, as people wont waste their time on a troll thread.

Most recent thing like this I can think was someone talking about building a computer and buying 6 4k projectors which cost 30-40k a piece.


I am trying to be as honest as possible, like I said, without proof no one will believe you anywhere you go, but if you silence the nay sayers as quickly as possible people will be more than happy to help tongue.gif

PS, welcome to OCN! biggrin.gif

Well I'm not water cooling. I don't see the point. I just want soo much performance that I wont lag or glitch or do anything for a long time. I live in the u.s. I have a job... with deadlines and some times my employer doesn't give me the time I need. Maybe the longest I can wait for a render is like 2 days at the most. I chose the mono because it can support up to 3lan lines. I need the fastest ram on the block for ram disks (don't say anything about ramdisks I use a lot and you can't convince me in that area. I heard the vectors were the fastest so I'll raid 10 them. Ill add some hdds later when I fill some space. You said the case wouldn't work with 4-way sli so can you recommend a case that has just as many features?
