Default All eyez on me...Guru attention needed!!

My email is spadexl@hotmail.com to anyone really experienced in making High End Desktop/Workstation rigs. Please send me a msg.

Which system is the better gaming rig???

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+ / 2.20GHZ / Socket 939 / 2000MHz Dual-Core
Asus A8N 32-SLI-Deluxe NVIDIA Socket 939 ATX Motherboard
(2 x 1024MB) OCZ EL Dual Channel PC3200 DDR 400MHz Titanium Memory
2x 256MB BFG Geforce 7800 GTX-OC's

Or

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+ / 2.40GHZ / Socket 939 / 2000MHz Dual-Core
DFI Lanparty UT RDX200 CF-DR ATI Socket 939(Crossfire)
(2 x 1024MB) OCZ EL Dual Channel PC3200 DDR 400MHz Titanium Memory
2x 512MB ATI Radeon X1800XT's

Or

2x AMD Opteron X2 175 2.20GHz / 2MB Cache / 1000MHz FSB / Socket 939

*If this opteron wont work. I might njot be able to get 2 175's on the same board. so if not use one of these configs and I will go with 2 single cores until 2 dual cores come down. 2x AMD Opteron 250 2.4GHz 1MB 64/32 Bit Single core or 2x AMD Opteron 248 2.2GHz 1MB 64/32 Bit Single core*

Nforce Professional 2200 Mainboard
2x 512MB Quadro FX 4500 (SLI)
(4 x 1024MB) OCZ EL Dual Channel PC3200 DDR 400MHz Titanium Memory

(Yes I want Dual Dual core CPUS :P )

You dont need only guru's attention. There are plenty of other people here that know much more then lots of guru's. Me included. Dont sterotype.

Well, I'd personally go with the opteron setup.. justbecause they're awsome and usally made for servers... but if your doing audio editing and video editing, switch to a intel setup.


Edit: oh gaming... go with the nvidia setup... but thats just me.

Well the quadro's aren't really meant for gaming so I wouldnt go with that. I would go with the x1800xt system but only get one for now then buy the other when crossfire cards actually come out. You will probably have trouble getting them both to run right now.
