  1. Rename the thread 'Ultimate Troll Build' and you'll get further....

    It's hardly and ultimate games rig, I have pretty much the same setup and have had it for around 2 years now, and yes 1 PSU will easily power all of that.
    got 4 sticks of ram, 2 gpu's 4 hdd's + 1 ssd, quad core cpu oc'd, 3 optical drives and a water cooler running off 1x 850watt psu without issue.

    Moreover it was wayyyyyy under $12200 lol, more like £1500 total, inc 25" HD monitor + my amp and speaker setup.
  2. Go on mate. :P

    With 2 x Six-core XEONs, you'll be able to Battlefield 100. :P

    what do people always have to hate :sarcastic: .although i still want to know what youve got inside it (in detail)
  4. the mars ii has 2 gpu's inside it so it makes it 4 and i doubt you've got 2 cpu's.
  5. Putting aside the (lack of) wisdom of this build, you would definitely need more than 1200w for that thing, if you really want it to be "ultimate". The MARS II can draw...wait for it... over 500w. So (2 x 500w) + (2 x 130w CPU) is already 1260w. That's without fans, drives, RAM, and anything else that draws power. But don't go for 2x 1200w, just get one of these:

  6. ofcourse theres a lack of wisdom thats why this topic is here ...to gain it
  7. Heh two CPU's is way way too much for gaming...if you want the ultimate gaming machine just go with this:

    Intel Core i7 990X 3.4Ghz Six Core
    ASUS Rampage III Extreme Black Edition Mobo
    12GB DDR3 Triple Channel Ram @ 2000Mhz
    Two Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD's Raid 0
    Coolermaster HAF X Case
    Two Nvidia GTX 590's in SLI or Two AMD 6990's (if you can find them)
    Corsair AX1200w PSU
    Bluray Burner
    27" ACER LED Moniter
    Full on dual loop liquid cooling system

    This rig would run better for gaming and cost a few grand less plus that rig you posted is built for a server not really for gaming...you could game with it but you would be wasting over 5k just running it!
    For the SSD you have posted just run two to four of the Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD's in Raid or seperate and you will have better performance combined than that single OCZ drive!
  8. And use this PSU
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256054

    Also if you run two 1200w PSU's off of a single outlet on one line to the breaker box you will blow your fuze!
    How not to blow the fuze just wire up a outlet for a 40A 220V outlet and use the Ultra 1600w PSU!!!
  9. thanks for the help I'm not the one making this my friend is. if I had to build a high end PC it would be for 2grand or a bit more.will your rig do better for gaming
  10. Psh I have a Core i7 950 OC 4.0GHz
    12GB Ram 1600Mhz
    EVGA mobo
    MSI HD 6950 2GB card
    850w PSU
    Win 7 x64
    Corsair H50
    Two 500GB HDD's
    One OCZ Vertex 2 120GB SSD

    My pc runs great for games and even with the Battlefield 3 alpha testing the game ran great with this pc no hiccups! I spent just under 2k.

    I would call your friend and say hey build me the 990x rig instead and save him a few grand!

  12. 1920x1080
  13. i dont even know what to say.... are you crazy quad gtx 580 sli for 1920x1080p gaming!!!

    your friend needs to check his brain.

    3 of these screens- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824176141 3 1920x1200= 5670x1200

    asrock z68 extreme7 gen3
    8gb 1866mhz ram
    corsair h80 with 2 of these fans- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103061 (cheaper at amazon)
    corsair ax1200 psu- best psu on the market
    Silverstone Raven RV03- cheapest at amazon
    2 samsung spinpoint f3 1tb
    1 plextor px-m2 240gb ssd big fast and very reliable
    sound card- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16829102019
    speakers- corsair sp2500 great set of speakers
    asus blu ray burner- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135252
    asus dvd burner- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135204 blu ray burners are actually slower (loading games etc.) than dvd burners with dvd's

    this rig will be way better because you have such a high resolution setup. it will actually give you an edge gaming because you will be able to see more. it will actually be faster too because of the bigger ssd you can put more things on it and they are so much faster than hdd's
