arrix, how would that mobo have a max memory of 24gb if it only has 6 memory slots. That equates to 6 4gb sticks of ram, which I don't think exhist.

anyways, my ultimate computer.
A great multitasking computer:

Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131564 ~$200

Ram (x2): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145098 ~$160 ea

Vid Card (x2): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130279 ~$530 ea (in SLI mode(

Sound Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102181 ~$280

Speakers: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16836116142 ~$430

Processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116246 ~$1020

Hard Drives (x6): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822147007 ~$350 ea

Hard Drives (x2): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148097 ~$300 ea

Dvd burner (x2): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827135062 ~$45 ea

Floppy drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16821103303 ~$10

Monitors (x4): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824006084 ~$1040 ea

Keyboard/mouse: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16823126180 ~$55

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133155 ~$180

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817703003 ~$470

UPS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817703003 ~$320


Along with some other acessories.
Total Price about $12,000

edit:

replace the mobo, cpu, and mem with these:

mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813151009 ~$1250

cpu's (x4): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103573 ~$870 ea

memory (x16): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820146576 ~$520 ea

oh, then the total is about $25,000
and probably half of the other components will not work, that is a server mobo.

Wow, I was making mine at least reasonable, but 12 grand! Holy hell!

Later today, ill make the best one I can find! I wont worry about keeping it semi low, im going all out


And im a mutlitasker, so as always, ill go with Xeons

EDIT>

Oh yeah, and the reason I dont have crossfire or a better video card, as its not a gaming PC. But ill show you all something kick ass

Remember, to make a full computer. Not just the basic parts. I mean everything. Case, CD drive, all the little odd ball things we dont normally think about.
