Looking to build a system with a budget of around $4000 dollars. I'll need to be able to run 4 monitors and i'll be multitasking a lot. One screen may be streaming something from the stock market, another may have some webpages while another might contain some business information
I'm looking to run 2 dual-core processors, not sure whether I shoud go with intel Xeons or AMD opterons or what other.
I suppose for the quad monitors, 2 SLI cards that support for monitors so I'll need a mother board with PCI-Express compatiblility. The cards don't need to be anything special I don't think as no games will be played on this computer, no graphical content besides maybe some occasional Television or news reports.
I'm thinking an 80gb 10k RPM harddrive SATA? is sufficient, aswell as around 2gigs of RAM. I need 4 monitors, so any recommendations will be wonderful. I'm just beginning the research as of know, building this for my dad and he's hellbent on buying a Dell PC but I won't allow it. I believe I can build something more reliable, and I need the best of the best in reliability to keep him satisfied. Lend me your ideas, thanks.
