High Preformance System ~$5000

Hello all. I'm seeking to build a performance PC. Looking for some advice on selecting components:

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Within the next month

BUDGET RANGE: ~$5,000

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Running the most amount of calculations as fast as possible

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Any type of permanant storage. I will be running the operating system live in the RAM.

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Cheapest in US

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: US

PARTS PREFERENCES: Dosen't Matter

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: NO

MONITOR RESOLUTION: Does not matter the OS I will be running will not have a GUI

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I will be running a custom Linux Build entirely in the RAM. I am looking to build an extreamly fast system however graphics, sound, and storage are not important. Also I need the ability to connect two components via Conventional PCI interface. Thanks for the anticipated help,

  1. Forgot to add: I need the system for fit into a standard computer tower case. No atypical enclosures. Needs to kinda look like a run of the mill computer when shutoff.
  2. Well what type of calculations ? Does it take advantage of multi-cores ?
