now here is where it gets interesting...
The 18 available pci express rails will be split into ten x1 slots. Each slot will contain a g92 based card that i intend to buy over a fairly long period of time. The pci slots will each eventually contain a 9500 gt.
Twelve GPUs in all, assuming all cards are single gpu, thriteen if the IGP counts.
I believe that is a record for a standard desktop board.
Go with the Phenom II 555 or the new 560, you can unlock it to a quad core on some mobo's.
And, The ECS a790GX doesn't have diddle squat in terms of "18" PCIE ports :
After researching, I have came up with super duper overkill, AMD style:
Quad AMD Opteron 6136(higher stock clock) OC'd to 3.8 - 4.2Ghz 3gbs side cache ( like you can find on old Power macs, the stick of 128k of ram by the cpu)
32Gb DDR3 Mushkin Enhanced2500 OC'd(if its possible to go any faster :P) to 3200-3900mhz
quad - hex ASUS ARES HD 5870x2 Eyefinity 6 Edition 4gb @ PCIE 3.0 16x @ CrossfireX
Dual (top and bottom) 1500W Antec Quattro's
Mobo that can handle this with Crossfire AMD 890FX Northbridges
2x 8TB Crucial PCIE 16x SSD w/ 4gb DDR3 4200mhz Oc'd(if thats possible XD) Cache, rendering up to 3.5gbs, in Raid 0
Coolmaster Haf Full Tower Case w/ Red LED's all around.
And to finish it off:
Infinite 10gb/s Internet Service
Steam Pre Installed
CA Internet Suite 2010
Windows XP Pro SP3 (sorry, I just like it too much, even trying windows 7 Pro, I can't wait to see xp again
Acer 1600P 17"-22" LCD Monitor
EDIT: MOBO EXSISTS!!!! :O:O:O
Quad PCIE 16x
128Gb Maximum, DDR2...
256Gb DDR2 800...
Bigest OMG ever.
