    For that much? Get a Quadro 6000. Also make sure you get your hard drives in raid. Don't know much about workstation builds, but I do know a bit. And you can't put that much memory on that mobo. Double check everything to make sure it's compatible.

    Wait - a Quaddro 6000?? Why not get the new K5000? It's Keppler based, handles multiple monitors with relative ease, and uses less power than the 6000 does. RAID leaves a lot more room for failure than a traditional HD setup does.
  4. ^With you on the Keppler based chip, but only RAID 0 does that. For a workstation, you go big with RAID 5 or 1-0

    Your right, a K5000 is probably better then a Quadro 6000. Also for the builder, I recommend not getting a ocz ssd. Samsung or crucial for an ssd.

    I have a Vertex 4 and it's fine. No problems whatsoever. I wouldn't get anything else though.
