You can get QX9650 instead of QX6850 for the same price

But I think 680I motherboards from nvidia don't support yorkfield. So you need to change it to intel motherboard such as X38 or wait for nforce 780

Express the computer as an equation because a unlimited budget could yield a nearly unlimited computer.

it depends on purpose the above computer would be the ultimate for gaming however one of these would take it to a completely different level if using CAD
