Ok, I'm sorry but I got to pick this apart.
-There are no 6ghz processors. You could overclock one to 6ghz but then you would be looking at nitrogen cooling.
-There is no motherboard with 2 sockets that can use both AMD and Intel.
-All graphics cards have a processor built in. How else would they work?
-Your planning on having multiple motherboards and a grand total of 3 CPU's? I won't ask how you're going to do it.
-How are you going to play 3 instances of Crysis with one mouse?
-Hypothetically, if you could put this together how much do you think it would weigh? Would you take 200lbs of thousands of dollars in water cooled equipment house to house? No? Than how would you LAN?
Back on topic.
I like that Lenovo for the price even though it's prebuilt. But Muffin Man is right. You may or may not need a dedicated GPU.
