Metalica look it up, FireWire is up to 3.2 Gbps per second which make it the fastest to date... Sorry your Prof. is correct... Sorry he doesn't know what SATA that is sad but he is correct about the fireWireb. Yes FireWirea has trans of 400 you are correct there.. There is another Firewirec on the drawing board so stay tune for that one...lol

Your career field is building monsterious computers that cost a lot of money that not very many people would buy. INteresting. We both know in a real life situation that you cant really major in AWSOMELY AMZING COMPUTERS THAT ARE OBSOLITE.

Tis why im going to be an IT tech....

Fine heres your build right here.

YOu wanna spend 3 Grand fine.. Off the top of my head specs

QX9650
8GB of DDR3
EVGA 790 SLI
2x EVGA 9800GX2's in sli
1200-2000 watt PSU
LIan LI V2000 case.
30-40 inch LCD Supporting 2560x1600

Have you ever thought about depreciation on a 3 grand computer?

You spend 3 grand and the computer will have a useful life of 3 years or so(due to Oc'ing), and will probably require around $500-1000 in upgrades to keep it lasting that long. But lets assume it's only 500.

Your looking at Roughly $100 a month to use a PC and that's if you stay in your budget. Noticing your budget, you are likely to not last 2 years on the same component with marginal upgrades.

I personally have a hard time justifying that kind of cost for using my comp.

Well I really don't think I'll spend 3 grand. Probably around 2. I am building this for a project and personal benefit. I want to have a great computer that will last even when upgrading.
