    ok seriously if your looking to spend that kind of money lga 2011 is your best bet .. get the 3930k which is a 6 core .. get you a corsair h100 water cooler .. haf x full tower or your rosewill will work .. 16 gb of 1866 ram corsair patriot what ever floats your boat .. and snach up 2 120 ssd drives patriot wildfire drives are nice.. if you want to save a few then get the pyro .. also a good performer .. if you dont like patriot corsair gt models are pretty good too if you get the ssds from amazon you can get a mail in rebate .. save some real.. money.. the reason i stated two ssd drives is for raid 0 and having a hard drive for mass storage .. 1 or 2 tb depending .. the mother board would have onboard audio 7.1 the need for an anditional card other then say a direct audio workstation hookup i would say would be a waist .. and with that kind of gear you shouldnt be trying to play at 1366 by 768 .. those are laptop settings.. for the most part. you want at least 1920 by 1080 .. or a decent 30inch monitor . that can out put the higher resolutions.. and for the 560 ti .. thats a waist .. seriously .. get a 2 680's or 2 670s and call it a day..
  10. Dude, What the hell are you gaming? or you need a Workstation?
  11. Intel Xeon X5690 Westmere-EP 3.46GHz 6 x 256KB L2 Cache 12MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 139W Six-Core Server Processor BX80614X5690

  13. I think of computers as ice skating. Ice skating at mach 15 speed
  14. you would be burning up your monthly power bill with those things ..lol trust me ..
  15. may i ask what games you plan on playing? ...
  16. BF3, Metro 2033, things like that
  17. and fyi a the corsair m60 is a decent gaming mouse ..
  18. Intel Xeon X5690 Westmere-EP 3.46GHz 6 x 256KB L2 Cache 12MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 139W Six-Core Server Processor BX80614X5690

    With processor? I think im looking at 5000
  19. just research the benchmarks on the 670 and 680 in sli .. theres plenty of sites that have that information out there .. 7970s in crossfire can also be a good match .. as for current games 2 7870s would be able to handle those games.. just saying ..
  20. those are not ment for gaming there set up tottally different .. if you really want to spend that kind of money then get then intel extreme edition .. its 1000 dollars in its self has the same cache .. just saying if you go that route you will kick your self in the ass .. for buying it .. the platform isnt ment for gaming..
  21. evga has some killer boards though look up there classified line of lga 2011 boards.. also they have a decent monitor rigg..

  24. A $3,500 PC needs a case that reflects the investment....the Thermaltake Level 10 GT has a unmatched feature set and standout looks. Went with a PSU capable of handling 3rd GFX card someday

    AT $3,500, ya asking ode SB-E LGA 2011 platform ..... can drop $400 ish with little gaming impact with 2500k ..... LGA 2011 is better but many would argue its not $400 better. That's a personal decision only you can make. I'd avoid IV CPus because they steenkie at OC'ing due to temp issues.

    MoBo....handles quad sli @ x16....superb OC board

    Cooler is best air cooler performs within 1/4 degree of H100 w/o all the noise and no risk of leakage.

    SSD is the fastest in its size range and has super long life Toshiba Premium Toggle Flash / HDscreams.

    GFX - Haven't seen the Asus TOP GTX 670 in newegg yet but its in stock on European sites. Given the reviews, this is **the** card to get. Asus it would appear has used the 680 PCB to add more phases to the VRM module allowing bigger OC's. Sems you'll ahve to wait a few more days to see them here.
