K there are a few things wrong with NeedACpu's rig
1)Asus? when u can easily get a DFI LP UT SLi-DR?
2)why not get the Raptor X? its better.
3)Why not the Opteron 280? it'll woop the FX-60 ANY TIME, and its cheaper
4)dont risk $600 with XFX as from what i hear, they dont have the greatest customer service, stick with eVGA, u wont regret it
5) Im sorry what? VALUE RAM? when his budget is $4k???????!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? why not get some good ones and then when he learns to OC he can make it EVEN BETTER!
EDIT: Sry if that came out wrong, didnt mean to flame.
