OP, just so you know. This $6k computer will be worth $1-2k in 3 years.

Also the more ram you add the worse the processor will overclock.

The Xeons in this build are essentially slightly slower 3930k's, only you get 2 of them, and you can't have 2 3930k's.
The Hard Drives are Sata 2 because the SR-X only has 2 Sata 3 ports, and those are for the ssds.
The Case choice is because it can support such a large motherboard, also a large amount of fans and hard drives.
I choose CPU watercoolers to make sure there's no problems with air coolers on a dual cpu board.

The 680s can be replaced by 2 Titans, depending on how they're priced at launch.
Also, the Ivy Bridge Xeons should come out around July, which will be 10% faster compared to Sandy Bridge Xeons with the same clock. They'll also use a new socket.

Also people suggesting AMD and other stuff seem to forget this will be an adobe workstation, and not just games. Nvidia is better in Adobe programs.

Sufficient, sure, but this whole thing is overkill that's kind of the point, going beyond sufficient.

For 4k+ more RAM will help.

He needs two computers, one to render and one to play his games and do everything else. If the computer is rendering for a day or two he basically can't do nothing with it. Also there is no replacement for displacement ( core / thread wise ), this said a 4p AMD Opteron 6xxx ( either 48 or 64 core setup ) with a Cuda card for the rendering system and a nice 3930k / 3770k gaming computer. Both can be build for $3000 each easily, just source some used opterons on here or on ebay.

Agreed...

Heck, 3500 for a beast rendering machine and 2500 for a beast gaming machine. Best of both worlds.
