Help on making a good build?

I built a version on newegg but was told i should probably ask for help XD

Budget Range: $3000

System Usage from Most to Least Important: @home projects, running programs/writing programs, games, media stuff (editing photos/video)

Parts Not Required:

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:

Country of Origin: USA

Parts Preferences: AMD processor Asus mobo ati eyeforce 6 card

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: No

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: trying to make it overpowered and have room for a crapload of ram, if anyone knows a board that reachs 100gb of ram as its min ceiling and has dual processer that'd help, im not adding more than one moniter for now as im going to slowly get more led tvs for a project idea i have in mind once i have 6


Include a list of any parts you have already selected with descriptively labeled links for parts.

  1. I'm totally confused at why you need 100gb of ram....

    You only need a 1500$ computer to run that resolution. Check out my siggy.

    But that probably won't fit in that case. Does it HAVE to be that case? A 1000$, in fact an 800$ computer could do the things you want to do.
  2. i highly doubt this could be fit but if it can someone just showed me this XD
    and i meant that much max as in i can expand it up to that over time, i didnt mean 100gigs imediantly
    oh yah and i meant min res high is better but i plan on running 6 led tvs at on the eyefinity 6 card since i cant find any moniters that thin
    yeah after seeing that board it no longer even remotely needs to be XD, ill build my own case if i must
  3. O.O You don't need 100gb. At most 16gb. I realize programming in things like Eclipse and such use ram, but I don't think, EVEN A HUGE PROJECT, uses up 100gb.

    At this point the best chips are intel chips. You'd be better off with a Intel chip and AMD card for Eyefinity. I think going with something like CF 6950 2GB and a i5 2500/i7 2600 would be smart move. At most your only going to get 4 DIMM slots on your standard ATX board. No more than that. EATX, would be the next big thing. Even then I think they only have 8 dimms.
  4. The most is 6 Dimm slots, my mistake.
  5. i meant i needed it upgradeable eventually to that
  6. Errmmmm I undertstand that. But most motherboards of ATX range have a limit to 32gb of RAM. Your looking at a server build if you plan to go up to 100gb.
  7. No problem as i stated
  8. Well anymore questions? Are you looking at the Intel build? I mean I personally am a fan of AMD but their CPUs above the 955 just don't cut it. Intel chips are better currently because they released 32nm chips first. That being the 2500K/2600K. You don't plan to overclock so a 2500 or 2600 is good enough. (K just means unlocked for overclocking).
  9. I'd still rather get an amd
  10. -_- Why? You want a super build, yet you refuse to go the route that is better.
  11. Above $1,000 I find it hard to recommend an AMD build. With some of the applications you list, it would appear that you would benefit from CUDA, but you want ATI Graphics. I find myself faced with conflicting requirements.
