That's why I was thinking about a gtx 570 or gtx 560ti, both are extremely fast video cards.

My question is, since I don't have CS5... is 16gb of ram complete overkill?
Yes that is! 12GB is the best number.

Yup thats why soccer here blows because we arent as into it compared to other sports. If we were as rabid about it then soccer would take off.

But 12 is not a viable option on LGA 1155 platforms.

This is looking like a very good build so far Nick:

Can't linger right this minute but I see that there are some use questions ...

1) I do game some but my tastes run to the fidelity of flight and driving sims more than anything else.
2) Video wrangling is a definite possibility but I haven't used my MkIV for it because my current machine can't really handle it.

One major issue right now is my computer's inability to even boot with more than one external HDD attached. In a perfect world, I'd like to be able to power up with:
- Three WD My Book 2TB HDDs
- Canon 9000 Printer
- Nikon V ED film scanner
- HP Flatbed Scanner
- Wacom Tablet

... all ready to rock.

Thank you all very much and thank you *sigh* for the PM

horse racing Omar, the trainer i was working we affectionately called DR.MEYERS

he would dope up crippled horses and put them in claiming races, at the time i was in the meadowlands

looking after his horses, he had a 1 yr ban in north america and was not allowed on any race track

one night i went to water off the horses at knight and found him in a stall with a horse and his "kit"

next day i hightailed it out of there to new york to work with 3 brothers, one was a jockey

they stiffed their horse the first 2 times out, third time they bet everything on him and let him loose

well he won, i made money but they all got caught using a shock device during the race

next stop philadelphia, liberty bell racetrack, worked for a guy a whole week only to find out

he shipped out overnight and didn't leave me any pay,i caught up with him a month later in hershey Pennsylvania

Someone had 1,600 posts on one thread ? Doesn't that really count as one?

Get an Intel SSD
Harddrives are slow, hot and noisy...

(at least for the boot drive)

Mentioned earlier, the capacity per dollar quotient is prohibitive.

For a boot drive?

I have a 160 GB Intel G2 since November 2009 in my Vaio SZ and that's more than enough space on my laptop for my software and photos I edit. (During my Summer holiday 2010 I had a 500GB WD Passport and 1TB Seagate FreeAgent Go with me for storage, at home it was external HDDs and a Windows Home Server since Summer 2010)

SSDs are expensive, but they are definitely worth their price.
No more defragmenting and a much snappier system.

Of course I wouldn't suggest SSDs for storage - but for a boot drive that runs the OS and software as well as contains currently used files, anytime, but it is your choice in the end.

It's well worth it. When you are looking at nearly a $3000 budget, spending 10% off that on a SSD is well worth it. Harddrives have become a major bottleneck for high performance computers, and a raid array that will give you that performance is just as expensive.

What do you mean it is not able to boot with all of those attached? Do you lack the ports available? Do you now does it just not have the power to support that many peripherals?

Also, I'm assuming most of those are USB, but if you could clarify what all of those peripherals require in terms of ports on the computer. (Firewire, esata, usb etc)
