Man I wish I had a project like this to work on.
Researching, buying all the parts and building my PC was so fun

I personally believe the 3820 is a waste, but overall nice rig. Coming along nicely.

its a temp cpu till the 22nm x79 6cores come out later this year or early next year.

its the only used part I bought for this rig as i couldnt see myself buying a new 6core now for $550+ then trying to sell it 6 months down the road for much less.

Eh, the IB-E chips will only be about 10% better at best over the current extreme line. They should be dropping around holiday season.

Why not? Best single GPU around and runs rather cool for its performance too.
