Over the top gaming build


i am currently looking to build a super-powerful gaming computer. I was thinking about getting an alienware, but i have decided to get this because some people told me it would be a lot better. I know how to put together a computer (considering it is very simple) but i am very knew to all the parts and i dont know what works and what doesn't. Heres what ive been thinking...

purchase date: mid august to the beginning of sempember

Budget: somewhere around 40k... lol

System usage from most to least important: gaming, animation/movie editing, gaming, microsoft office, did i mention gaming

parts not required: monitor, keyboard, mouse

preferred websites: newegg.com

country of origin: USA

parts preferrence: sexy case with really good wire mangagment and preferably a section for hard drives that doesnt require wires for them w/ water cooling

i would like to do nvidia 3d vision i have a moniter and glasses i just need to put in compatible gpus

overclocking: yes

sli or crossfire: yes

moniter resolution: 1920x1080

additional comments: thanks for all the help in advance

    im sure you have about 25K to spend on somewhere else. oh ya your system in the future
  2. if you like 3d, you should get two more 3d monitors of the same type and use them in ``3d vision surround`` google it you will see what i mean.

    otherwise follow mjmjpfaff suggestions. spend the extra 25 k to buy every game thats ever been made
  3. 40K!?! Whoa!

    You should make top of the line gaming systems, or something!
