Hello everyone, im looking for help making 2 pcs, the first one

Its my personal pc will be used for work and play, will need some power as i work in both design computer(web design and programming, game programming, modeling and some video editing and rendering) and engineering(cad and cae design and testing, running programs like autocad, autoplant, catia, ansys and such). Given this i was looking for a powerfull pc, my current one is going for over 4 years old so i need a full replacement.

Budget (something around 1k to 3k)
Sli if possible

Second pc is a home server, will be used to store my work, movies, music and so on that i will be able to access by my network, and even a htpc that im looking to get next year.

For purchases is not a urgency, but will probably be at the end of the year or so.

On a big note, i will need this 2 pcs to be set on rackmounts, as im moving from a desktop build for my pc to a rack for better management of space and lights (the computers will be in my bedrooms and atm the lights in the case are driving me nuts).
