Can anyone suggest a Tyan board? I'm overwhelmed at the options there.

I would suggest that you entertain builds on both platforms. Let the gurus on both sides of the fence do their worst, and pick the one that will suit your needs the best. If that sounds good, feel free to post in the AMD section as well, specificially stating that you're looking for an AMD build. Edit your first post here to state that it must reflect an Intel build.

For what you need is something like this,
HP Proliant DL380 G4
2x3.4ghz
4 gig of memory
6x36 gb scsi, you set up the raid, I would go with raid-5

You can get something like this one for $3000.00 to $6000.00 on ebay
With one of those servers you can get the management programs that go with the servers.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813151134 seems to be a good Tyan and it has onboard video so that'll save you 100 bucks.

While that would be nice, the onboard video won't be necessary. I have to drive 6 LCD's. I was thinking the K8WE might be nice, but I digress... this is about me getting a good working combo from those more knowlegable than myself.

Well a dual core Opteron would be the way to go for this build. Which one though depends on your preference,and the rest of the specifications.

2 250gig WD SATA' in RAID 1 .RAID 1 provides the mirroring that you are looking for.If one drive fails,the system will continue to function. You may even want to go for a NAS solution if you are that serious about it(you obviously are). You could set the NAS to backup every 15 minutes,if both drives were to fail(unlikely,but possible due to uncontrollable circumstances)you would still keep all of your data.

2 Gigs of RAM will suffice,but if you really want to go all out,go for 3. OCZ

I know you prefer the TV tuner to be seperate from the card,but an ATI All In Wonder would probably be your best bet. Any cheap PCI cards with multi monitor DVI output will work.


Linksys NIC card


PC Power And Cooling 1000w!!!Go all out. Its the best,period.

GOOD Air cooling on everything but the Proc and GPU's will be fine. For the Proc and GPU's I would go with the Apogee and Maze 4's on the GPU's.
That would result in 2 loops most likely,in which single heatercores would work for the sake of space,but 2 duals would be prime. One Loop with CPU and main GPU. Another loop with the rest of the GPU's.

The reason im going with water rather than phase is due to the fact that Phase isnt meant to run 24/7 for extended periods of time. Doing so, results in imminent failure. Pumps are meant to run 24/7 for a designated period of time,typically rather long depending on the pump.(Replace it before it fails)

A massive Lian Li would be beautifal and perfectly suited to your needs. Lian li cases are the easiest to work with. They go out of their way to make working with the case a convenience.

I think for your hard drives you should use 4 150GB Raptors in RAID0+1. That will be very fast with the back up that you are looking for. Also, since you will not be OCing, you can go with some more mainstream RAM, like Kingston. I also don't think you will need to water cool as this could hinder the reliability of your computer. Good air cooling should suffice. Since you are going to be running a lot of applications I would go all out with 4GB of RAM. I have seen some very good IBM motherboard with the same application that you require. I will get back on that one....

I suppose it would be easier, but I would only be getting one man's (or woman's) opinion and besides, I'm perfectly capable of putting it together myself. I asked here because while I can put one together, I certianly could use some direction from people who know fast PC's.

im sure that a man (or women) who spends at least 5 days a week around pc's would hav a good idead of wat a fast pc is
