  1. Impressive workstation so far, but where's the PSU and ODD?
  2. If you are simply wanting to ensure compatibility of all the parts you've listed, go here -> http://pcpartpicker.com/p/FEyi , it tells us that the parts are compatible and will draw ~ 466 watts max.

    Because of it's feature set.
    3-way SLI, 48GB RAM, 2 GbE ports, etc...
  7. Thank you for all of your suggestions and help for a invoice to computer building. I have most likely built a more costly system than I needed. But my systems have been more costly initially but have last more than 10 years. Which is greater than most people I have talk with. Cheap is not better, most of the time. Putting together system and I will be back to you on the results soon. Made a big mistake ordering the key component (motherboard) from a group in Florida and they sent it SmartPost!!!! Hope it comes soon after 11 days in one piece. Don't order any thing using shipping saver. I have talk with a USPS person about Fedex SmartPost and what he said was not very encouraging. Back soon.

    Υοu can save a lot of $$....Give us more information...what programs will you use? you need a whole new system including monitor? how much do you want to spend?
  9. In answer to expensive motherboard. Settle for a ASRock X79 Extreme9 ATX LGA2011. Check it out. The reviews were outstanding. I can't way to get it. What a power house. Everything, including the kitchen sink. Also changed to the Corsair Obsidian Series 800D ATX Full Tower Case. Still under the $2300 with two WD VelociRaptor 500GB and Plextor 256 GB SATA III SSD.

    It's a ASRock X79 Extreme9 ATX LGA2011 motherboard. It has a kit for 2 USB 3.0 Front panel and in addition it has 2 internal USB 3.0 headers. allowing for 4 front panel USB 3.0 ports. Unit has 8 USB 3.0 operating ports with 8 USB 2.0 ports, 2 front and 6 back. Expandable is the word.
