Thanks man...

Its only $5 cheaper only D: Probably because they aren't well known amongst most people for being just as good as its Core 2 Quad equivalent

But if you want to save some cash on that build, that Xeon will probably have better Revision's that'll overclock better, its the same thing as a Q9550 but thats a Server Processor (also before you ask, it'll work on the 780i)

Hello Folks,

I will just step in for a second and say this. He does have a point with his post #18. It is his build and if he has the cash to spend on building a overkill system so be it. Please do not cause a flame fest or fights cause you think it is overkill. Or that it is overboard.

Jsut answer the questions the best you can and be done with it. If Noiny wants to do it that is fine. We all would love to build a overkill machine like that. We are only here to advise on the situation given. He wants to do it let him do it.

Cheers,
Mak

1. Not sure.. I don't really know.. probably the Dominator..
2. Yes you can do that.. find a SCSI 15k RPM Seagate Cheetah Drive
3. Yes.. (refer to Number 2)
4. OCZ Vendetta 2 or TRUE with a Scythe S-Flex
5. Not compared to the other two mentioned (Refer to 4)

Yep I'm pretty sure I already answered this..

EDIT: also get a 750i FTW instead of the 780i, since you're not Tri_SLI anymore

Okay, lets just say its overkill with two gtx280's.

Its not even overkill, its pointless, we are just trying to help you.
One of them will run EVERYTHING. But anyways. (If I had the money to blow, might as well, right? )

As for a PSU, Go for a 1000W since you have the money for it.
It should be able to run everything, I'm pretty sure.
