Default Extreme/Ultimate Gaming PC

Hello everyone. A very close friend of mine is wishing to upgrade her already amazing PC. However she has her reasons, and she, like me, doesn't have much knowledge on Components, so if it's okay with the Forums and everybody else I'm here on her behalf in need of advice. The PC needs to be the most Extreme/Ultimate/Extremely Badass PC's going, with her "Budget" I hope her dream can become true. Believe it or not her budget is 12,000, ($18,000). She needs the entire package. OS, Three 27" or higher HD Monitors, Keyboard, Mouse etc. The PC's need for being so extreme, That I am not too sure about, however she's, how can I put it.. Doing well with Finance, and want's to spend this much on her PC so it won't be out dated in a couple years. However if I was to hesitate a guess I'd say, playing every single newly released game on Maximum settings, Full 1080p HD on every game and video her lovely self watches. As in, CoD, Halo, Farcry, Skyrim, GoW, WoW, RuneScape etc. 5TB of HardDrive is a must as her occupation currently involves lots of assignments etc, and she downloads Tons of stuff. She doesn't mind what Components go in, just that she has a 12,000 "Budget" and she's more than happy with spending it all. Many thanks in advance on her behalf. Both her and I are very appreciative of all the time and effort spent into all Feedback given.

Pretty simple really. 680 4GB SLI, 3930k, 16-32GB of 1600MHz RAM, 256GB+ SSD, 2x4TB HDDs for the space, 3 27" Samsung LCDs.

I would say 2 690s but usually only one can be purchased at a time and the 2GB per GPU limit on each card will be the limiting factor playing in 2D Surround (3 monitors). I'll also mention that if she waits she can have the newest Nvidia card which is coming out next month called the "Geforce Titan". It will be a freakin monster with 6GB of RAM. 2 of those in SLI will last quite a long while.

you should definitly wait a month or so for the new graphics cards to come out.

I honestly have no idea what SLI or SSD is hehe. Well I can ask her, depending on if it's a normal month or the type of 1 Month release date companies usually put on products but end up coming out in 3 months time. She said to me that if it's even possible she literally want's to spend all 12,000, so perhaps Intel i7, Triple NVIDIA Titans etc, she also wants several of the latest and best water cooling systems available etc. Since I'm asking and answering on her behalf, and honestly I'm not going to lie, she was just promoted to Major in the British Army, due to 8+ years of incredible service, and at her young age, with her current salary I'm surprised she doesn't own a nightclub in Malibu. And if needed for this project, a one day flight to the U.S to visit Newegg to get all the parts she needs won't be a problem. So as I was going to ask, when you have some spare time could you possibly link all best, most badass PC components she for some reason needs to fill her "budget" of 12,000, excluding the GPU, I'll see if she can order double/triple Titans. Her and I can just buy some 27" LED Screens and an OS anywhere. I can't word how appreciative I am For all your help and assistance.

Eh, if she can't build or do any of this herself then I highly suggest staying away from water cooling. Maybe an H100i on the CPU, but the GPUs can stay stock. She really doesn't need the extra cooling. Anyways, here is a start.

CPU:
Newegg.com - Intel Core i7-3970X Extreme Edition Sandy Bridge-E 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo) LGA 2011 150W Six-Core Desktop Processor BX80619i73970X

Motherboard:
Newegg.com - ASRock X79 Extreme11 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard

RAM:
Newegg.com - CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model CMD32GX3M4A1866C10

GPU: x4
Newegg.com - EVGA 04G-P4-3688-KR GeForce GTX 680 Classified 4GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

PSU:
Newegg.com - CORSAIR AX1200i 1200W Digital ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply

SSD: x2
Newegg.com - Corsair Neutron Series GTX CSSD-N480GBGTX-BK 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

HDD: x4
Newegg.com - Western Digital WD Black WD4001FAEX 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Case:
Newegg.com - Corsair Obsidian Series 800D CC800DW Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Optical:
Newegg.com - ASUS Black 12X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 12X DVD-RAM 8X BD-ROM 8MB Cache SATA Blu-ray Burner BW-12B1ST/BLK/G/AS

Fans for case: x5 (2 pack)
Newegg.com - Corsair Air Series SP120 High Performance Edition CO-9050008-WW 120mm Twin Pack High Static Pressure Case Fan

Cooler:
Newegg.com - CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Water Cooler

$7,564

If she really wants to completely waste her money on nonsense she could always buy an Alienware rofl.

do you know which monitors you/she wants? you shouldn't use the standard 1080p or 60hz
you should either get 3 1440p monitors or 3 120hz monitors
(you cant get both...)

or you could get a 4k monitor thats infront of her, then 2 1440p monitors on each side of her...

Well it's for her but we live together. I'm honestly not sure, the biggest possible without being too big that it damages your eyes because of closeness if you know what I mean. I honestly didn't even know 1440p existed, I thought the maximum was 1080p HD. What's Hz monitors? I'd say three 27" Full HD LED 1440p monitors though.
