any reason you want that fast a memory? it might make the computer 2-4% faster than ddr3-1600 at most
Zalman's are overrated... I own 2 .
I'd prob hold off on dropping that much on 2 285's thats old tech
I'm sure nvidia will have something out about a month after the 5xxx series from ati.
Prob be faster than 2 of those and cheaper.
If you are going to spend that much money why not go i7 920 and get triple channel ram etc? also socket 1366 will run 6core processors when they come out
so to answer your question.. no you arent building the ultimate pc
you are building a wasteful throw 2000$ at random parts and something faster could
be built in a month for half the price.
Thanks for the feedback Rand_79,
I went to a great little shop i found that does gaming builds and they said roughly what you said... i didnt realise the 1366 is x16 Tri SLI .
so i bought a system there, it is crazy fast, i went with a SSD for the OS and 2 Raptors for other apps, n stuff, i did get the GTX285 but a cheaper version and they showed me how to overclock it to the specs of the more expensive one, they also said that the GTX8285's will support DX11 with a patch..
i got the i7 920 with 3 2gb 1600 mhz dominators. so it is a weapon now does everything i want it to do lol
