I really hope this is legit because a lot of people went through the trouble to give some really great ideas. First thought that came to mind, "OP knows too many key terms like "sli", but of course he did say his son was iming him through msn". Ah well,

Good luck John.

As I said earlier, this guy is not likely to overclock, or at least not to the bleeding edge, so why does he need a R3E? He is not going to run tri-sli either. At most it may one day be regular dual sli. A simpler and cheaper mobo will save him money to put towards real performance gains: better and more memory, a quality SSD, and more storage space.

OP, good call on getting the monitor. I still strongly stand behind my recommendation. Your $4000 budget has caused some people to lose sight of what you have clearly stated your son will be doing with this computer. They are recommending the most expensive hardware they know of without carefully adding everything up. PM me with questions if you would like.

Cores > clock speed for this application, especially since you won't be overclocking (assumption, correct me if I'm wrong).

Get him a monster monitor: Dell U3011, or a HP Zr30w. This will improve the experience sooo much; people should really lay down more money for monitors.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...k=Dell%20U3011
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...Tpk=Hp%20Zr30w

Get him an Intel i7-980x and an Asus Sabertooth X58 Motherboard.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-223-_-Product
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-665-_-Product

Get him 24Gb of RAM Memory.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231357

Get him a single (1) ASUS GTX580. He can get another later and put it in IF he needs it.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-409-_-Product

Get a Full Tower ATX case, I like the HAF 932, but it is entirely preference.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-160-_-Product

Get a power supply that is modular and rated to 850W. This one is excellent.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151102

Get him two (2) traditional hard drives with 1Tb for storage. 2-1Tb drives are much cheaper than a single 2Tb drive.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-185-_-Product

Get him one solid state hard drive with around 120Gb for programs. The C300 is arguably the fastest one out there.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-348-_-Product

Get him a simple DVD-RW drive, he may want to invest in a Blue-Ray drive later.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827135204

And of course, a copy of Windows 7. You may want the Professional version, but do not need Ultimate.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-758-_-Product

If I ran my calculations right, and you choose the more expensive dell U3011 monitor, this will bring you to 4225, a little over budget. The Hp Zr30w will bring you to 4065. If you had to cut out a little cost, then I would cut one of the 1Tb hard drives because they are easy to add later.
You will notice I used A LOT of Asus components. I believe that matching brands in the computer can help prevent compatibility issues. Its almost not a worry, as most everything is interchangeable, but you can be assured an Asus graphics card will work with an Asus motherboard. When the cost is nearly identical, and the product is nearly identical, I match brands.

Wait for the new i7 which will come out feb 20 something,
Wait for gtx 590 which is supposed to come out this month (not sure)
-Get noctua heatsink
-modular 1000w PSU (silverstone, seasonic, or antec)
-artic silver thermal paste
-wire straps
-corsair obsidian 800d computer case
-2x120gb intel SSD (good price on newegg)
-3tb storage
-Windows 7 (home premium should be enough for most people)
-asus sound card
-pcie network card adapter
-Microsoft office if he is a student

Will all equal a very happy kid. (if you'd like you can wait for the 6990 and buy 2 for quadfire but i am not sure 4000 will be enough in that circumstance)

I agree it might take forever, that's why I wanted to buy a pre built computer. But I also wan't to do the relationship thing and build it with him. I understand where you're coming from though. I am probably annoying to you right now, but I'm sorry, I just got addicted to this posting ability, it's fun to interact with computer guys, especially when I need help.

Right, no sweat buddy. Of course i respect you, and, i believe it is a great thing that you decided to build your son a rig/ or build it with him. No worries. Let's get your son his dream rig!

Just to avoid all these options constantly popping up, basically it comes down to these 3 options.

1. The ultimate rig build without compromise ( Intel )

2. The budget rig for the more value/money concerned ( AMD )

3. The rig build in advance, and probably overpriced as hell ( Alienware )

Pick your choice. For Cinema 4D/Photoshop, all 3 options should get the job done. Also, you would most likely want to go with an 27" or 30" calibrated IPS monitor, granted that IPS produces the most accurate colours which is a must for photoshop.

I am pretty sure that the guys in here wouldn't mind assembling a rig for you, once you decided which type of rig you want. Cheers.

Hi Ultimatium, Thanks for this.

I want number one, and I've added a picture below of my current cart as we speak. I hope you can see it

Thank you again, I'm getting closer and closer, I've talked to some people from here, that emailed me there "MSN" so we've talked on there, for some help too.

Cheers

-John

PS: This thread went viral quick, and I think all I needed was somone on MSN. I Did not know it would get this many replies, sorry for everyone thinking I'm here to seek attention which I am not.

I don’t think most want to read through 28 pages. It may help you a lot if you can add two sections in your first post. First part states requirements and second part will be a list of components. As things progress, you can update the list in the first post. In this way, everyone is on the same page.

The CPU you have chosen does not fit in the Motherboard.

I would suggest a i7 950 or a i7 980x, depending on what suits the budget.
