Take all the time you need, I will be here.

This build will handle everything great, extremely great. Has pretty much the best graphics card a gamer could want, and has an awesome intel CPU. Also with the SSD you will be blazing fast. This is for sure future proof for a little while. It also has the case you like.

Can you other members look over the build so he will be sure its good.
Link just isn't working. Scan isn't loading for me and I can't remember the name of the other site. WTF lol.

Ok well I found the other place but unfortunately they didn't have the cards I wanted for you. Sooo Scan will have to provide the cards and I think this Aria place can do the rest. The rig I'm building is ridiculously fast.

If you have a good sound system I can recommend a sound card. I stress good. I don't mean some cheap 500 dollar 5.1 system slapped together either.

Reasoning behind some of this stuff besides your enormous budget is:
3930k, 99% same as the 1000 dollar brothers, and like the second best CPU on the market. Will absolutely tear through any CPU intensive task without even being overclocked.
RAM, I put in 32GB of RAM because with the budget, why not? This much RAM isn't needed but IIRC I saw something about rendering or whatever in your first post. You'll need it there.
Graphics, I chose 2 680 4GB cards because together they are faster than the 690 and individually have more VRAM. The 690 is 4GB but only 2GB per card.
PSU, 860w is more than plenty but that PSU is super super solid and reliable. It will last many builds after this one.
Motherboard, I actually did not want this board. It is a very good board, but simply overkill for this rig. They didn't exactly have anything else I really liked there so I chose it.
Case, it's an 800d. Some like it, some don't. I love it and think it'll keep this rig nice and cool with lots of room to spare.
SSD and HDD, the SSD is really reliable with enough space to store a lot of things on it while the HDD is fast with plenty of storage. I recommend both Corsair and Seagate highly.
Cooler, I did not opt for custom water. I figure anybody who has to ask for a parts build probably needs an AIO. It'll do what you want and more without the possibility of mess or leaks. No offense intended with the prior statement, it's just the truth.
Finally the BD ROM, I chose a BD ROM because I figured you might want to hook this machine up to your big *** TV and figured if you have the cash might want to backup some BD media? Who knows, but it's there.

Sorry guys about the links, I didn't realize that when I changed the settings of the computer that it would have the same URL. Pretty much the website itself is changing but the link is staying the same.

Most Java/Flash based sites do this where you edit everything inside a shell.

Thanks PP Mguire, I've ordered all those parts. As far as sound goes I have a BOSE Lifestyle T10 5.1 Home Cinema System. I can't say for sure seeing as it's all I have and can't compare it to anything, but it's pretty sweet, it should be though for the pretty penny it cost me.
The other day you mentioned Projectors. My wife and I are doing some home renovations and seeing as she's getting the dream kitchen she's always wanted and needless to say deserves, I figured I'd throw in one of these for my son. So what's the deal with these Projectors? I've been looking on PC World - Best Prices on Major Computing Brands | PC World and I take it I have to buy a Ceiling Mount, a Projector Screen, then an actual Projector? If that's the case, would you please mind taking a look at these parts I've selected and firstly seeing if they're what I actually need, and if they're all compatible? And don't I have to charge them too? Before I paste the links though, how much should I be willing to spend on a Projector for my son in order for him to be able to watch in 720p HD? And lastly, I'm debating turning my study into a home cinema, seeing as my current Tele plays 1080p HD Films and I already own it, apart from the size difference what would be the advantages of buying a Projector and having to spend an extra £1000?

Thank-you that's alright. After seeing what you'll say when you're free I think I'll ditch the Ceiling Mount and just have the Projector sit on his window sill seeing as it's about center room height, can always prop it up on some books if it's too low right?

Also, I'm not sure how home cinema projectors work, obviously they're not a TV and I'm guessing you can't exactly hook up digi-box to one, but will I be able to connect the projector to my computer via DVI/HDMI or some cable so instead of watching DVD's/Blue ray I can watch whatever I have on my computer and it projects on the screen?

That's a great system he put together for you, I don't know a lot on the projector but a friend of mine has one and he has it on the ceiling AND hooks his PC to it all the time and his wife has fun playing her XBox 360 on it, His has all the same connections as a TV, As for the ceiling mount, The biggest advantage to that is that people can walk through the room without blocking the projection by just walking under it, Je often has groups over for movie nights and sporting events so he didn't want it blocked every time someone had to get up.

That was my initial thought, and I know this may sound crazy seeing as the amount I've spent on things so far, but those Ceiling mounts go for at least £50, and nobody really goes in his room, only to dump off clean clothes etc. Us as a family are near enough always downstairs watching on the big screen TV, but I just thought I'd get him one of these seeing as an 84" TV costs almost 3 times as much as an 84" Projector system does. I'm just waiting to see what PP Mguire has to say so I can determine whether or not I should buy one for my son, and possibly one for myself. Because if I do it will only be some £150-200 Projector, and just going by from what I've seen on websites if I want 1080p quality or at least 3D Ready I have to spend in the region of £500+ and considering this was just mean't to be a little gift I didn't really want to exceed £300 for the entire thing.
