Yes, and?...

I was just pointing out that that's fine, because the 3820 can handle itself smile.gif

Who knows whether or not he will upgrade to more GPUs? What if he decides to get three or four GTX 780s instead of two Titans? It's nice to have that headroom and it's not that much expensive if any. Also, just because it is a 1250w PSU, it doesn't mean you can't use less than that. In fact, you will achieve the highest efficiency out of your PSU at around 50% load. I'm not saying that this is the reason why I suggested the 1250w, but it's just a great deal right now, and like I said, it's nice to have that much headroom because who knows whether or not he will upgrade to 3 or more GPUs in the future. By next year, three GTX 780s ($600 each) will cost as much as two Titans ($900 each). And like I said, it might not be the best idea, but it's not impossible to use up only 50% of what your PSU is capable of, in fact it is more efficient there, and reduces the chance of audible coil whine.

Yeah it just kind of sounded like you were still trying to convince him to get the 3820, when he already said he was going to get it . smile.gif
"3820 is still a very capable processor bro. 8 threads, 4 cores. Will handle nearly anything."

OP, look in the F/S section. There is an ASUS P9X79 motherboard for like $190. ASUS bases their warranty off the manufacturer date, so buying second hand has no impact on warranty.

Just be patient and you can probably get a lot of slightly used hardware for 30-50% off.

OP, here is the link to it: http://www.overclock.net/t/1376532/asus-p9x79-motherboard-brand-new-in-box-another-price-drop

It is BNIB, so you won't need to worry about it being second hand.

There is also this, Sabertooth X79 $175

MSI Big Bang Xpower II $310, 3930K ES $450, more also

A board that will be great is the Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4. It supports four way SLI/Crossfire and 8 DIMM slots in an ATX footprint, all for $239.99. For RAM, I suggest the DDR3-2400 16gb 2x8gb Team Xtreem LV kit at $139.99. I'm also assuming you already have some parts/peripherals such as OS, keyboard, mouse, etc.

RAM--http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820313325
Motherboard--http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128562

How about this?
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/WDNM

After adding RAM to it, it comes down to about $1,138.97. If you want to get it under $1000, remove/downgrade some non important products (You can also downgrade/remove the RAM if you plan on upgrading in the future anyway and don't have the money right now). Don't downgrade that PSU though, if you plan to SLI Titans, $179.99 for a fully modular 1200w 80 PLUS Gold PSU is a great deal. I think a silver/black theme build is waiting to be built. With those shiny silver heatsinks on the motherboard's VRM, the silver trim on the Titans, and the silver design of the XFX power supply, this will be a sweet looking build.
Thank you so much. I really appreciate it I think your build advice is winner here
