Hi I am going to build a new rig soon, but i need some help choosing parts and stuff (im not very good at this).
oh and sorry for my bad writing XD
the HW is:
1x Corsair Obsidian 800D Big Tower
1x ASUS P6X58D Premium, X58, Socket-1366
1x Corsair HX 1000W PSU
2x Crucial DDR3 1333MHz 12GB KIT CL9
1x (maybe 2) Western Digitial Caviar® Green 2TB
1x Intel Core™ i7 Hexa Extreme CPU i7-980
2x (maybe 3) Gainward GeForce GTX 480 1536MB PhysX
1x Sony NEC Optiarc DVD±RW burner AD-7240S
1x Lite-On Blu-Ray Reader IHOS104-37
1x Corsair H50 Hydro Series CPU Cooler
4x Akasa 120mm Red LED Fan
okok i know this rig is gonna be good BUT did i forget anything?
But what CPU shall i use?
the new Intel Core™ i7 Hexa Extreme CPU i7-980
or the Intel Core™ i7 Quad Processor i7-960
oh and will my GPU's fit? and will they stay cool?
You don't need a 6-core CPU for gaming. Just get a 920 or 930 and overclock it with your H50. And why do you need two GTX 480s? What resolution are you playing at?
ok ok a Hexa "might" maybe a bit much but it is future proof tho
but i can go for an Intel Core™ i7 Quad Processor i7-960 and clock it up to 4GHz
Rez? I am getting 3 new screens aswell that to 1920/1080 (going with a new 3D vision surround system) don't know what Rez that is in tho X/
3 monitors sounds nice.
@ razear: he needs 2 cards to run his 3 monitors, nvidia isnt as cool as ATI and they can only do 2 monitors on one card instead of 6 like ATI
You look like an enthusiast with your 24GB of RAM so if you have enough money for a Core i7 980X go for it! Also, instead of buying a second 2TB HDD you may consider buying a SSD, it will boost your performance when loading programs and provide a very fast booting of Windows.

I KNOW that the 480 can take 3 or even more screens but comon, even my old 9600GT can do THAT, but not in a stable FPS with no screen tearing.
And yeah the 5970 is good, BUT i want my Physx, CUDA & 3D
go for a good set ssd's(270/250) and a 1tb(or2tb) for storing media etc.
i would go for the ifinity setup, i think i read something abot the fact that ati is working on a 3d system without the glasses or something so iff that can be verifyd by anyone i would deff go for ifinity
btw al ati cards now-a-days have physx only it isnd calld physx
physx was a card from the company (aeres?!?!i forgot the company name) taken over bij nvidea
GTX 480's arent that good.
correct me if im wrong but the HD 5870 is beating its ass both in pricing and performance, plus you get eyefinity easily do those 3 monitors as long as 1 is display port. i see you have a big budget so scrap that 5870 and go for 1 or even 2 HD 5970's
My opinion :)
This guy is picking mostly the right hardware contrary to some fanboys here-
1. IT IS STUPID TO RUN 3X 1920X1080 ON ONE CARD!!!! IT WILL NOT LOOK GOOD OR PERFORM GOOD-IT IS A GIMMICK!!!!!!! You will be forced eventually to down the resolution aa af and go into dx9 to get any sort of playable fps.(Excluding possibly one 5970 on older games which is really two cards bundled in one).
2. I would get an i7 930 for now as intel is gonna release better hexacores than the 980x in 3-4 months that will be priced a lot lower-and they will fit in a x58 mb so no worries there.
3. 24gb of RAMM???? whY???? Even the most intenstive apps only use 12gb so no need there.
4. 3d is nice but when it does come out w.o the glasses you are gonna have to buy a new monitor/s to use it so don't worry about it now.
5.Ati cards do not have physx nor anything like physx. There is a hack to allow you to do "physx" on ati cards but it voids your warranty so be careful!
6. SSD is not a bad idea but avoid MLC as they have short lifespans.
7. 480 beats 5870 on 70%+ of games by usually 5-10% on the higher res's. The real advantage to having one is it OWNS ati cards in extreme AA-teselation-DX11-i.e it way outperforms ati on new games that will be developed but as for all current games it only holds it own with the 5870. We will see what the 6000 series brings to the table though...
Ooh and btw if you need anyone to build n ship it to you-I'm your man. If you are gonna build it yourself then more power to you but I can ensure everything works right+save you time.
iff searched it out and nvidea had taken over eageia physX
while ati has havok physics
@while ati has havok physics
look at Batman AA, you can't do THAT on the ATI card.
Its an Nvidea exclusive
the "physx" which ati has is total junk-I do not even call it physx-it does not perform nearly the same as true PHYSX
Ati puts little to no effort at all into improving havok so it is still almost the same as it was in 08' while nvidia pours money into all of their drivers
