good luck to ya, though. i'll be interested to see what a 4500.00 rig looks like.
I think new drivers will come out before 2009. I am trying to save as much money as I can like I said before.

If you have $4500 to spend, you might as well go skull trail.

I am going with Nehalem when the 32nm chips comes out next year. So I might have a new build by Q2-Q4 2010 depends if I need it by that time.

Skulltrail is too expensive.

2 QX9775 = $2,000 (2 x $1000 each)
Skulltrail Motherboard = $500
HD 4870 X2 Quad Crossfire = $900 (2 x $450 each) or GeForce GTX 280 Tri-SLI = $1050 (3 x $350 each)

Those are the cheapest prices I can currently find. Thats around $3500 for those parts. The only money I will have left will be $1000 for monitor, keyboard, mouse, WC, ram, hdd, case, dvd burner, psu, speakers, sound card, os, etc...

While I can get 4870X2 Quad ($900), QX9650 ($600), Rampage Formula ($200) for $1700, half the cost of skulltrail.

Again, all this with a first build...i suggest you build a regular system first so you can get some experience and learn about overclocking first. Later on, you can build another and start doing suicide runs and stuff.

And dont get mad if you kill a board/chip...its happened to these guys.

Taking apart a factory computer is nothing.

And im not even talking about putting it together. Im talking about the skill that goes into overclocking. It takes trial and error and time to know what youre doing, you dont just boot into bios, and get to 4ghz instantly.

There's no way a dualie will ever touch a score from one of those.
Yes the quad gets the higher scores but that does not make a dual core incompetent. It will hang w/ a quad especially not having a low fsb wall.

Yea...I've had to pretty much RMA every single part in my PC except the CPU. It just comes with the territory. It can be extremely frustrating when you have a bad component and aren't sure if it's the RAM, the power supply, the mobo, or whatever.

Prototype:
OCing takes an incredible amount of patience and time, and, as said, trial and error. Taking a computer apart and rebuilding it will get you ready for step 1 of about 50 :P when you are building a high-end PC. Add into the mix WC and you have a whole new beast. Also, if you are only building one for the highest benchmark spot I think you will be really dissapointed when you drop $4k and then someone beats you within 2 months.

Eh sorry dude. I saw your screen shot, but I couldn't find the cpu score so I just subtracted the other scores form the total. I guess its not evenly weighed.
