Ok i am putting together this pc, and i need to know a) what you guys think of it for a crunching pc, and second, what kind of psu should i get for it.

1x PLEXTOR 16X DVD±R DVD Burner $105.99
5x Western Digital Raptor X WD1500AHFD 150GB 10,000 RPM Serial ATA150 Hard Drive $1,149.95
1x eVGA 512-P2-N635-AR Geforce 7950GT KO 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card $269.99
2x Kingston HyperX 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) $519.98
1x ASUS P5W DH DELUXE/WIFI-AP Socket T (LGA 775) $227.99
1x Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700 Kentsfield 2.66GHz LGA 775 Processor $1,499.00

Total so far $3,772.90

i still need to add the psu and case to that.

the first 4 hd's will be in raid 0 and the 5 will be a standalone for the os.

As I said already and if you are going to look at using this board for RAID I would check to ensure they have fixed the RAID issues with this board...

other than that LOOKS GREAT!

Feel like justifying your comments besides just saying BAD?

Do you really think he needs all that juice for the one you recommend?

both are waaay off...

a 600w one (from a known respected brand -like ocz, enermax-) should work more than ok

you guys need to remember i have parts like 5 10,000rpm drives and a high end v/card that will eat up a lot of juice.

kc which parts do you think i could use instead, and what motherboard would you suggest instead of the one i picked?

No not really.. but it is one BADA$$ PSU to be sure... it would be one of the last ones he would ever need... with power demands getting ready to go down rather than up, hes ready for quadcore GPUS and CPUS and doesnt need to upgrade...

:laugh:

I was j/king KC dont get all in a ruffle...

The best in the business, ENERMAX, I call them the Rolls Royce of PSU. I would recommenced the Enermax® Galaxy Series Power Supply between 800w and a 1000W, not sure what the price will be but I would imagine you would not get much change from $200.00 could be more. The reason I recommenced this one is because if you decide to upgrade your card again you have the power sockets ready for direct connection to the PSU to the GFX card.

Link would help... http://www.enermax.co.uk/products/psu/galaxy/EGA850EWL/index.asp I will be using this PSU because I am going to be using a Crossfire GFX card.

Really?
I always thought enermax was iffy.
Amazingly, i took a shot on Logysis, a no namer, and mine is holding out fine.

Sorry... it's been a long day and my brain is a little fried, these are good makes I would recommend along with Enermax. they are quite expensive those, and the price for.

Enermax Galaxy 1000W £234.94 (I said they would be expensive $471.00
Enermax Galaxy 850W £180.98 (I said they would be expensive) $357.00
Tagan 900W £151.99 $300.00
ANTEC Don't bother I never trust a PSU which is cheap

Personal preference at the end of the day, I have been using Enermax since 1996 and have never once had a problem with them. In that time I have upgraded my PSU twice from a 350W to a 550W PSU. The next one will probably be the Enermax Galaxy either 850W or 1000W depending on which GFX I decide to get.

Don't touch ANTEC.

The prices are my conversions I hope I am right...:)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
