  3. your system wont work. first of all, dont get a 6990. they are loud like jet engines. second, you can only run 2 as drivers limit the amount of gpus to 4 (6990 has 2 on one board).

    my build was much much better and faster. plus, there are dual nics onboard the WS board so networking shouldnt be a problem.

    The 2600 is a Sandy Bridge Procesor, not an IB.
  5. Here is another build from ADC Direct:
    :( - Good or not ?

    Is this memory(Kingston) junk or great or is there better ?
    Should I really add 3 graphics cards?
    I think I wanted 2 Velociraptors and 1 large standalone drive for backups plus 2 256 GB SSD's, 830's or OCX ?
    Can I run Raid 1 on 2 Velociraptor HDDS AND run Raid 0 on 2 SSD's ?
    Then I thought to add one large (3 TB) drive to back up everything to and stream it to offsite backup via a 2hd internet connection through either another IP or another router.

    The HDD's woill have the accounting SW on it for the other PC';s in the network but that's all the other PC's will need from here other than to store and retrieve files occassionally (say 20-30 tijes a day).

    I also have a DVR that I want to back up to the 3 TB drive which is yet another networked PC.

    The SSD's are for boot, OS, games and stock charts, the HDD's are CAD, DB and other bus. type programs and files.

  6. Darn it, I thought the part pickr site gave me an IB CPU. Which is the right IB CPU number *fastest, most threasds) ?

    I used partpickr, it did not say.
    What is IB part no. ?
  8. The 3960X is the fastest consumer CPU, at <$1000.
    However, the fastest IB CPU is the 3770k which costs roughly $300.

    Newest Consumer CPUs:
    i7-3770(k)
    i7-3820
    i7-3930k
    i7-3960X
  9. i just told you my build would suit you better. you blew too much money on the case, the graphics cards perform the same as the ones i included.

    velociraptors arent worth the money as SSDs can perform much faster

    kingston 1.65v ram will degrade your memory controller faster

    your chip would not overclock so there is no point of getting a aftermarket cooler

    the power supply isnt very good either
  10. Ah, I found your build, never saw it before, just got to the part picker site with no info.
    So. does your build , esp. Case, allow add ons like more cards for PLC controllers, 32 gb of memory,
    Raid, etc.

    I would add another SSD for backup of video DVR and cad files.
    I heard Silverstone full tower cases/setups were quiet, cases had lots of USB 3.0, easy access to ports, more bays, etc.
    True ?
    Also, can I add more graphics power or 3D later ?
    Otherwise, anything else to add?
    Multi card reader, blue Ray (if not there already ) and external backup.
    Thanks for this.
    In order to get warranty could I get this through a standard builder like Cyberpower and have you spec and test, burn in for a consulting fee ?
    I also need to transfer all my files and programs from my old XP

    Is HDDalso for backup of video DVR and cad files.
    Are SSD's Raid 0 ?

    Are you offering to build this through a business you own?
    In order to get warranty could I get this through a standard custom builder like Cyberpower and have you spec and test, burn in for a consulting fee ?
    I also need to transfer all my files and programs from my old XP

    :??:
  12. the HDDs are for just plain mass storage or backups. if you need more space, you can get a seagate barracuda 3 tb instead of the 2 1tb hard drives

    No. the SSD is just one large ssd. you probably dont need raid 0 as it doesnt really provide that much performance increase in day to day use. if you really want RAID 0, you could go out and get 2 256gb crucial drives instead of the 512gb one

    the board supports 4 GPUs. i included 2. but im warning you. if you need to add ore GPUs, go start off and get a seasonic 1250w as it supports up to 4 GPUs

    you can go ahead and add the card readers and blu-ray drives if you want

    the P280 case is a silence optimized case. but it is still very good in keeping temperatures down
  13. you can build the system yourself. it is pretty easy since you are just plugging this thing into that. sorry, i dont build pcs for other people right now. im only 14

    if you can get cyberpower to build this system great. Unfourtunately, in canada, we can get our systems built for only 50 bucks with all the validations plus one year warranty from ncix
