Yup, triple channel memory is a major flop. Made x58 mobos cost rediculous prices and in benchmarks and real use had little to no increase in performance.

Depending on what media suites his son uses a standard gpu might not cut it quality wise. The college i work for the students say they can tell the difference between the 8400gs we use and the quadro(8 series). Personally i cant tell the difference(in quality) but if he is big on media might want to drop the dough on it. Personally i agree with you though.

I'd suggest spending 2000 on the machine- still a fantastic computer, and then putting the rest towards college.

Being 16 myself, I can say how much I appreciate the gesture of college money now.

4000 is way overkill

If i had all the monies I wanted and I built a computer for my wife to edit photos with.....

First off if he is doing 3D / art work he will need a monitor like this.


absolutely the best color, quality screen available.

Second prebuilt or custom built?

If you can find someone in your area to build the computer for you, you could get a much better deal. (buy the parts yourself) If you can't, I would gladly build you anything you buy for free just pay shipping. Very hard to trust a random person on the internet, but I thought I would throw it out there.

If you go the pre-built route I would stay away from cyberpower, ibuypower, alienware. I have personally fixed a lot of their computers and the components in them are usually cheap and bad quality.

Hey John, i would wait- as all the other guys say- SB is getting recalled right now- wait till they ship the revisions- you could get a lot for less than 4000.... you dont have to spend that much money.
