Buyers Guide: High-End Workstation Configuration

This system is a serious number cruncher. With a pair of Ivy Bridge-EP-based Xeon E5-2620 CPUs and 32 GB of RAM, you certainly won't be lacking in horsepower. An Nvidia Quadro K4000 workstation graphics card backs up the Xeons and their mountain of memory. The builder didn't ignore storage performance either, a whopping 960 GB Crucial M500 boot SSD and a pair of 3 TB 7200 RPM Seagate Barracuda HDDs give you seven terabytes of total drive space! Topping it all of is a Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium HD sound card and a duo of Blu-ray burners. A stately Lian-Li chassis shows that this rig is all business. Congratulations to forum member guchaochen for having his recommended build picked by the Tom's Hardware community this quarter!
