    Get your facts right before paraphrasing or misquoting me;

    1 - The $10k build is personal and I'm waiting for Nehalem. Do you see "$10k" anywhere in the thread title?
    2 - Movie playback? Sure, once in a while. More DVD crunching and PSD work. Ever work on a billboard?
    3 - Who ever said I wouldn't upgrade?

    Since when are Canadians so self righteous? Leave the thread if you have nothing positive to say.

    Everyone has been a huge help - and I've been saying that a lot. This is just thread-jack, please stop.

    i agree with the Canadians on this one. you even put "$5000" in the thread tags. most of us around here are interested in speed and efficiency, not bragging about how much money we waste.

    What's wrong with him spending 5 grand though? Why not figure out the best way to spend 5 grand instead of telling him to do it cheaper.

    He seems like a person who has the money to waste and not notice seeing as he's spending 10 grand on another machine pretty soon. Help him get the best for his 5 grand.

    And Captain, get a 30" screen over a 28", you'll just get a better screen and seeing as your budget is huge, it doesn't matter.

    Thanks to everyone that made suggestions, it's been a long process and I've learned a lot. The thread should have been called:

    "$5k build budget - suggestions?"

    It's not about bragging rights at all, nor is it my way of waving money around. This is a build for my office and it needs to be stable and built to last. In fact, because it's not "MY" money, I'm being especially diligent in how its spent. That being said, I am making purchases that may not appear logical to some, because I do intend to upgrade down the road, as new components become available. As a platform, it needs to be scalable and robust. The 'bling' I add it my own and I'm putting my cash into and building the rig myself. I'm very fortunate to have an employer who trusts me enough just to hand me the cash and build my box however I want. Coming here and seeking suggestions was simply that, it has nothing to do with any 'brag' factor.

    There have been a LOT of great suggestions and the "experts" have changed my mind on many ideas I initially had for the build.

    Dude, I don't fault you for putting it that way. Unless you read the whole process (even on the other board) I can understand why it would seem that way to you. Squeeze me macaroni.

    That's a bold statement, especially around here. It's complete arrogance to state something like that when you know that's nonsense. Who are you to tell me what I can spend and on what? Just because it doesn't fit into your universe, doesn't make it wrong.

    Wrong again. If that kind of thing was important to me, a $5k rig IS bragging rights. But that's not the point of the build and it seems like you don't want to accept that answer - all ten times I've given it to you.

    More arrogance. What's "right" for you, isn't always "right" for everyone else. You also fail to consider that I was boxed into using a QX9650, what good is a Skulltrail to me?

    Brilliant. Dazzle me with you witty net-attacks and call me names. You sound like a child. I may not like TOOL but you don't hear me insulting you for it, do you? But if this kind of thing is important to you, so be it. Just keep it away from me, ok?

    You keep talking about this $10k figure, do you see that in the thread title anywhere?

    We agree on something.

    To everyone else, thank you for all the PMs, suggestions and great help. Apologies for the minor distraction noted above. Hopefully we can get back on track, I'll post the final build and begin a work log as parts arrive. Cheers.

    Ditch the kingwin PSU mate and go for something that's known to work... Enermax galaxy or Corsair 1kw PSU's... both are modular but don't look as flashy as ya model... but at least it worked here with 2 GTX 260's 4 HD's, WC setup and a an OC'ed quad...and I think 1 X2 will do for sure...2 raptors will do and add some terrabytes HD's then, not really a fan of SSD yet... But it's your money ofcourse

    Looking forward to see it all assembled, will be a killer rig...
    Question : Why do some overclockers switch into d*ckmode when money is involved

    Remark : They call me Pro Asus Saaya yupp, I agree

    beautiful build, but as mentioned numerous times...ditch the PSU. Kingwin have a bad rep, and even if that PSU reviews well, it's not proven like the many other available ones.

    Go Corsair, and no less than 1kw.

    Your "office" computer needs watercooling? How is that robust, necessary, or even safe if it's not your money? I mean, whatever on spending a lot of money, I'm not one to speak, but that $5000 computer is asking to die the day it springs a leak (and pretty much all watercooling set-ups will eventually have a bad experience, especially with people new to it). Again, I don't care if you spend $1 or $10,000. But if you are being truthful that it's not your money and your work is paying for you to overclock to gain 5% to 10% app improvement over a normal well-equiped machine, I can't imagine watercooling being the best plan when it's someone else's dime.

    Valid points, on all counts. In the end, I may decide to ditch the WC if it's flakey or problematic. It's new to me so that's an unknown. If that turns out to be the case, I'll replace it with solid AC - on MY dime.

    The PSU is the point of concern most people have. I've read a pile of reviews, none negative and took the added step of speaking to builders who actually like them. In all cases, they feel as I do and as others here have said - it's a name with a bad rep but the "MACH 1" is their flagship product and has been an outstanding performer from everyone I've talked to. Again, if it's junk, I'll ditch it in favor of a new PSU - again, on MY dime.

    If it does perform and three months from now I report it as such, would it change anyone's mind? Not likely but I'll review everything I purchase.

    Since you already ordered the kingwin psu, and it could withstand 100% load in the anandtech roundup, I fell it could turn out ok.

    But I have to say one thing...people having good experiences with them, and those reviews you linked to does not mean much. You rig will use more than 700W from the wall, while those test rigs used less than 400W. Alot more than most rigs.

    Something to keep in mind in the future is, only trust credible reviews who use load testers, oscilloscopes and an reliable testing method.

    This thread is useless without...no wait...it's just plain useless.

    Threadstarter should have already bought the system by now.

    "Threadstarter" already ordered the system (see above) no wait, were you going to pay for it or just say something plain useless?

    Uh, disagree. I've never said that. In fact, I've taken *much* advice from these forums, what makes you think otherwise? Fact is, there are a LOT of different opinions to be heard, I can't take them all.

    For the record, I was going SLI and for a totally different setup when this all started. Dunno what it is with the PSU though, everyone's on my um case about it lol

    I'm not as skilled a builder as so many are here and I am concerned about the PSU since EVERYONE keeps telling me to go Corsair 1K but I've done the numbers and the research and I prefer the aesthetics and package of the Kingwin. If you compare the two, the cabling looks a lot better and the numbers aren't THAT different. If it's a bomb, I'll RMA it and try something else. On MY dime. What's wrong with that?

    Gear's on its way, when I get started, I will learn a lot and smack my head and learn from it all. In fact, I already know I'll shell out loads doing upgrades and mods but I will have a *MUCH* better idea of how to build a rig - this will be my third in seven(?) years.

    So yeah.. see you all in the funny papers.

    If you like the pretty little lights that's fine, but people are on your case about it because the 1000hx is a much better psu. Plain and simple. I do however, hope all goes well for you.

    nobody seems to understand that he's set on the Kingwin PSU because Kingwin makes gorgeous power supplies. i did the same thing on my first leet build. i got a Kingwin 650 or 700W modular power supply and it was freaking sexy. it worked fine without issue. the only downside is that it was loud as hell and i ended up removing the 60mm (80mm?) fan from it because the noise was driving me crazy. it never hurt anything, but i'll probably never buy another Kingwin again. there are just too many better brands to choose from.

    Im to lazy to advise on what all is wrong with this build, but I'll say that is wayyy to much money for a computer at this moment.

    I read a review on new egg that the motherboard can't handle 8gigs of memory, because it doesn't play nice with 4 x 2gig sticks, but it plays nice with 2 x 2gigs & 4 x 1 gig sticks..?

    No, but I frequently work in Photoshop CS3 with huge PSDs though. It has a 3.5GB cap on the memory since its a 32-bit app. Unless you are running multiple instances of it, you only need 4GB. The 64-bit CS4 edition won't be out for awhile.

    And DVD crunching will be done on the CPU, not the CrossFire setup you have. The dual HD4870X2 are a waste of $1K.

    Since when are Canadians so self righteous?
    This has nothing to do with myself or anyone else being of nationalities, races, religions.... etc. Let's keep it that way.
