Hello, I am currently rebuilding an old antec case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and was wondering if this build would work for scanning photos and storing large amounts of data. At the same time I need to be able to run graphics intensive games like Metro 2033 on high in eyefinity (I don't intend to try and max Metro though). I was also wondering also if I can run two different raid setups at the same time with an amd 990fx motherboard. For this build, I am trying to use as many high quality parts as possible, while at the same time keeping my budget under $2400
While thinking this build over, I was wondering if heat would be an issue in that case, can someone tell me if it would be?
Please feel free to add any suggestions or give personal opinions, I am very open to new ideas.
I forgot to mention, the 7870s fit fine, I used my friend's gigabyte WF 7870 crossfire setup for a day in it to test how they worked with my old amd 965 @ 3.9ghz.
For $2400 there's no reason to even think about purchasing an FX-8350. Go Intel or go home. Get the i5-3570K instead. I wouldn't purchase that power supply and I'm not really sure why the photo scanner is mandatory - but this system below will be far better and will give you plenty of room to add anything you want. Go for a single 7970 GHz edition instead of dual 7870's. You always want to get the single strongest card you can get as opposed to two weaker ones.
