so i'm planning on blowing $6000 over the next three months. I already went on PCPartpicker, great website, and created a machine that I want to get.

I'm going to be video editing and rendering (4k or higher

I want the highest quality stuff... don't care too much about water cooling... don't feel like putting it all together and i'm pretty sure that air will do just fine (I don't need my components below freezing just because they can be)

Anything I should change?

you dont need two optical drives. you dont need all that ram. you dont need a 600 board, or a 400 psu. and u can buy a better cpu then the one listed.

I'm not, I am royalty serious about this. I can get $6000 in the next three month and I can spend it how I like. I got the monitors and perephials and junk, I just need the computer... man! Every single forum can't take me seriously!

If you have everything you need.

GET 4 680s or 7970s and a nice cpu and board a couple nice SSDs in raid and your good to go. All that wont consume a full 6000$. If you were watercooling it may come close.

Hello cheesling,

I do apologize for the somewhat rude response you've gotten since coming here. We merely wish to suggest to you that it is not in your best interests to spend so much on a computer when similar or identical performance can be acquired with less than half the budget.

However, if you are intent on spending a full $6000, then you have selected the most expensive and powerful components from each of their categories. A few things to note, however.

Quad GTX 680's at max overclock and a 3930k could all run just fine on an 850 watt unit. There's no need for one twice as powerful...

Nvidia's GeForce Titan comes out in just a few days. Let's see how powerful it is, and then get a couple of those instead?

OCZ Vectors are indeed one of if not THE fastest SSD for the consumer right now. Good choice. Those things haul *** make no mistake about it. Four is a tad unnecessary, but haha whatever.

Please respond with any other questions you may have.

Post a picture of your current setup or something, you wont get taken seriously on any forum without at least some proof, as people wont waste their time on a troll thread.

Most recent thing like this I can think was someone talking about building a computer and buying 6 4k projectors which cost 30-40k a piece.

I am trying to be as honest as possible, like I said, without proof no one will believe you anywhere you go, but if you silence the nay sayers as quickly as possible people will be more than happy to help

PS, welcome to OCN!

Well I'm not water cooling. I don't see the point. I just want soo much performance that I wont lag or glitch or do anything for a long time. I live in the u.s. I have a job... with deadlines and some times my employer doesn't give me the time I need. Maybe the longest I can wait for a render is like 2 days at the most. I chose the mono because it can support up to 3lan lines. I need the fastest ram on the block for ram disks (don't say anything about ramdisks I use a lot and you can't convince me in that area. I heard the vectors were the fastest so I'll raid 10 them. Ill add some hdds later when I fill some space. You said the case wouldn't work with 4-way sli so can you recommend a case that has just as many features?

What are you going to be rendering in? Unless you need CUDA I would go for quad 7970's..

Listen man... couple things.

1) you are spending too much money for knowing so little about computers. save your money. spend 2k and you wont 'lag' at all on anything. trust me.

2) you need watercooling if you want the maximum performance if decide to waste 6k. you're basically buying a ferrari and using the cheapest gasoline on earth but still considering it fast because its a ferrari. it just does not work like that. it will still run but it won't work to its full potential like you think or want and will ultimately be a waste.

So can you guys send me some lists of builds that will have the same performance or better?

I'm going to bed. I'll send pictures tomorrow of my current build.

Honestly, starting a thread, everyone has questions then you just leave instead of answering. We know NOTHING about what he needs.

What about monitors. keyboard mouse, and speakers?
Dont need the second bluray. Your storage is terribly inefficient.
Get your 1 256GB for games and OS.
Get Caviar black for storage.
You cannot even utilize 4 680s. You can only run 4 monitors. 3 in gaming. I would recommend a large set of IPS monitors
http://www.amazon.com/Nixeus-Resolution-2560x1440-Monitor-NX-VUE27/dp/B008M08SN6
and even with 3 monitors you would max out at ~11 MP. Deeming the 4th card pretty useless
Just get 3 the performance increase on the 4th card is pretty small and it usually just ends up handling physx which a 680 is unnecessary for not to mention even if they split the work the fourth and sometimes the third card would just reduce frame time.

You can assume that 12 GB of VRAM would be enough. Also make sure you have enough airflow for those. The top 2 are going to be very hot. I would mod a 200mm fan Right where they sit If I were you if you got that.

May I also state that SLI and crossfire both have their problems and should be avoided to an extend in high numbers (like 4) because the more cards the more chance for problems.
If you are hell bent on 4 GPUs go for the 690 and just get a pair.

BUT SERIOUSLY:
Your computer is going to put out heat as FUG either way. Watercooling is not as hard as it seems. Also, why go all out this far and not just watercool the damn thing? it seems like a cop out if you are gonna settle for crappy cooling on hardware that is nothing but the best.
GTX waterblocks
Get yourself an EK Supremacy or whatever is top dog now and two of these Thugs
and these Things you even get a discount for buying too many!
Get yourself a pump and some nice fittings fill the thing up (Fill the radiator on its own then tie it in) and you have temps that are unheard of for your setup

Ok... lets forget what anybody said eirlier. Lets start a new thread right here.

Here it goes:

Hey, i got up to $6000 to spend on a REALLY powerful computer. I'm going to be using almost all of the adobe cs6 programs and want to be able to play any game at the highest setting... I don't really care about watercooling mainly because I don't feel like putting it together and can't see dramatic increase... I mean come on, its not like I'm putting a blow torch to it.

I NEED POWER... lets just say I'm going to be rendering projects like the movie transformers where it took them a month to render one frame... OK maybe not that big... but you get the point.

What builds would you recommend?

(Now I'm really going to bed
