  3. Hi :)

    Quick question...why are you buying Xeons ? Is this going to be a server ?

    Also you realise this will cost thousands ???even at a special price ?

    Thanks for the consideration, I have the funds to purchase the setup, and yes, this will mostly be used to run servers, But I am also a hard core gamer, so I will also be using it to play Call of duty and Minecraft. But 70% of the system will be dedicated to server hosting
  5. The exact cost is $11,000 BTW

    One thing: Even with a 590 GPU, you won't need 1500W. Max is probably 1200W.
  7. It says the Mobo only supports 300W for a graphics card, the Geforce takes up 340W when under a full load, can this be fixed with the Two 8-pin Supplemental Power connectors, or will I just have to limit it to 300W???
