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:

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

ok first off buy like 3 high resolution monitors. 3d is not that great when you can have 3 monitors!!! -get 3 of these. if you are spending 40k you need a extreme monitor setup to make use of it.

2 of these- -these support 3d


- wait for sandy bridge extreme and get a 2011 socket mobo and the 2700k i think it will be?

storage drive- get at most 3. i cant see many people using 2

ssd- get 1, for now. just put it in the pci-express slot


psu- best psu on the market

cpu cooler- with 2 high performance fans-

ram- since you will be doing some movie editing 16gb would be nice:

blu ray burner-


sound card-

mouse pad-

im pretty sure ive covered everything oh and-

im sure you have about 25K to spend on somewhere else. oh ya your system in the future

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
