Rich Guy Build
 
Well, I have a customer who paid me 1000$ up front (For labor) (Told him this was not needed, but he insisted.)

He came to me and said he had no budget, he was willing to spend in excess of 20000$ for a good computer, and I told him this way more then enough, and he can get a very amazing rig for under 4000$.


But, since he has no budget, I'd thought you guys would like to go ahead and put a dream build together, and I will build it, (Pictures included).

So, any suggestions on the parts?

Appreciate the help.

throw in a OS of choice and a case of choice along with a kick butt watercooling system and you will have one of the fastest computers around.

edit: wow i have got to get faster.

You guys are thinking to small for cooling the i7, gotta phase cool it :D. He's got the money lol.

Also, you could consider 2x295's both water cooled.

Re: Rich Guy Build
 
phase cooling sounds pretty cool. but might as well go with some crazy ln2 setup for the tri sli'd GTX285's.

Tenenbaum 03-07-2009 09:12 PM

Re: Rich Guy Build
 
Though I've never messed about with Phase Cooling, does anyone here have experience with it?

I've seen it before, but never actually did a build with one.
