Limit changed to $3,200
Do you want water cooling and all that?
Because I want to be able to clock my GPU and CPU a lot. Also, I hate the fucking noise from the fans. I want to be able to sleep with the computer turned on.
Wish I had $4000 to throw away. :(
Why did you post that video?
Because you can get that with 4000 dollars and its watercooled.
Wait you lowered your budget.
Which is also 800 dollars above the limit I set a few posts ago. Too bad I cannot update my thread title with that.
You can just change some components (Only one graphic card at once for now by example; around -750£/600€ for your budget)
watercooling still makes noise you know...
you're better of just getting high preformace noctua fans
I just put together a quickie build with a i7 980x for 3300.
I think an i7 930, a 5850, 5870, GTX 470, or 480 and 6GB RAM is about the limit for maintaining sanity. Above that point I reckon it becomes a big waste of money.
By the way, what is the most demanding thing this PC is going to have to do? And at what monitor res?
It was just proving a point, if it was my computer I would buy an i7-875k and overclock the hell out of it.
This is what I would get for myself if I had 3,000 dollars to spend.

It comes to 2,777 dollars for a corsair 700D, two 5970s, 1100-watt gold-certified power supply, 4 gigabytes of 2000 6-9-6-24-2N RAM, an i7-875k, tuniq tower 120 extreme, and a realSSD C300 128 gigabyte SSD.
I probably wouldn't use any other hard drive, just the SSD, as I don't actually use much space. I'm a very minimalistic person. This computer I use has a 750 gigabyte hard drive and it shows up as 657 of 698 gigabytes free. Hell, I might buy two of them and put them in raid 0.
no points getting an i7 875, either a 920 or an i5
That psu sucks
Shitty SSD, get OCZ
Do you think I just choose parts and not even bother to google them and look them up on tomshardware?
"For example, Crucial’s RealSSD C300 and the Intel X25-M G2 provide the highest I/O performance"
yeh but OCZ and intel are better
I've looked at the video, and decided with this build:
Corsair Obsidian Series 800D - $300
Intel Core i7 920 - $270
Asus Rampage II Extreme - $415
Asus Radeon HD 5970 (Dual GPU) - $770
Corsair Dominator GT DDR3-2000 CL7 6 GB - $440
Creative X-FI TITANIUM FATAL1TY champ - $245
Zalman ZM-MFC3 - $90
Chieftec A-135 Series 1000W PSU - $220
CoolIT OMNI Interposer Plate AMD HD5970 - $85
Watercool Heatkiller LT 3.0 CPU - $80
I am not sure of what reservoir/pum etc I need.
Rough estimate: $2915
They don't sell the Swiftech Apogee XT anywhere in Norway. Is a T-Line a sort of reservoir? How do I keep the water from getting warmer? Does a pump supply the water with cooling? What's a RAD?
I think you should stay well away from watercooling
just buy decent but quiet fans instead
Jesus christ, looking at those parts and how overpriced they are you'd probably get better value from bloody Alienware.
I put together $1800 builds on newegg that were better than this.
Again, I live in Norway. It may be the best country to live in, but everything is overpriced.
Is it because you're not in EU or what? I live right next door and there's no way that would be 4000 USD.
Probably, I have no idea. Those parts are 2900 dollars after my estimate. Or 18913 Norwegian kroner.
I still need help to find a reservoir. Would it be better with a T-Line and run tubing to my waterblocks?
You norwegian people have too many money to spend on nothing..
*Angry Dane rambling about how much oil Norway got from the Northsea-deal*
That is way too many money to spend on a PC.. Why the hell would you have your computer on while you sleep anyway? With a SSD, it'll startup like powder in contact with a bazing firestorm! Use like 2500$ at max, and upgrade your computer later, for the rest of the money! Computers gets outdated very fast you now, it won't still be the shit in, like, two years! I know you well may have your arse full of money, but this is like throwing moey out of a window.
