Here is what I have got so far, I know the PSU is high (Only to add more cards at a later date and need 900w for 3). I am asking for Opinions on the set up and maybe where I can trim some fat (ie. the Noise Reduction is it worth it? The Power supply gasket and fan mounts, etc)
After Reviewing prices / Benchmarks Decided to go with the i7 3930K (~ -500.00)

Anti-Vibration Fan Mounts [+9]
CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-3960X Extreme Edition Six-Core 3.30 GHz 15MB Intel Smart Cache LGA2011 (All Venom OC Certified) [+780]

First off, change the RAM config to 4gb x 2 so you can expand easily to 16 gb later on.
second, do not get a "standard power supply" from cyberpower. get a corsair 850w V2. thats enough to SLI later on.
third, to trim fat. well its based on budget. i would ax the noise dampner and gasket. i doubt its a difference thats audible to the human ear. second i would add shipping foam. call it insurance against having to send the whole rig back and waiting for them to fix something...
do you really need it to ship the next day? a custom built computer should be ordered a month in advance of when its needed. i know there are times when this isnt possible, but $110 to get it two weeks earlier??
Did you use the SPRING0410 code to save 5%?
For trimming perpuroses, tell us your optimal budget, what you want to do with this rig, and will you overclock or not?
I would ask you whats your budget? And computer purpose? Is it gaming or work desktop? But ill assume its a gaming rig. In the mean time like major said i would not go with the dampner gasket since it wont do much of diffrence, specially when your not planning to overcloc. And if possible i would ax the next day shipping too ... and another question any preference in online store?
You can get something like this for about $1971.09. Its a perfect build for Video Editing/Gaming whatever you throw at it it can do it. With possible space for upgrades. It can be costumize a little without changing all the components to fit your needs. Let me know what you think or need
Yes the above post is correct never ever get the standard PSU or the cyberpower branded one usually these are extremgear supplys that are not even good for a door stop.
Go with the corsair or cooler master. Also rush ready to ship next day usually also means no testing.....
