A lot of the time we talk about one of our passions, phones, but we never talk about another big piece of passionate technology item, our computers. I recently deceided that I was going to custom build my home computer and I figured I would start a thread to see what others have done and provide my shopping list for others to give me some tips, figured we could call them "Grocery Lists" haha. Figured we would keep it simple with listing format and obviously pictures are encouraged!

OS
Case/PSU
MoBo
CPU
GPU(s)
Hard Drive(s)
Memory
Optical
Monitor
Extra

Let's start talking about some of those monsters out there! I figured I would grab a couple of posts to see if we could have some fun like a poll or wall of fame etc etc haha.

Oh boy, I'll need Warren Buffet like wealth to afford this:
Mobo: EVGA Classified SR-2
CPU: Dual 3.3 ghz Xeon X5680s (to be overclocked) ($3000ish)
GPU: Dual Asus Mas II (quad sli) ($1500 each)
Hard drives: 2 OCZ Vertex 3s 480gb with 2 wester digital blacks 2tb each
Custom danger den water cooling
Memory: 12 memory slots= 128gb corsair vengence 1866
Case custom Mountain mods U2-UFO
Optical Plextor B940SA
Monitor: wait for more 3d monitor to come

Of course there is no way I can afford this, but its my dream machine. I'll like to see something beat this beast in benchmarks.

For extras, seriously consider water cooling and some fan controllers

Plus when I have read about Ivy bridge I don't see any advantages other than mobile space. I do however admint its been a while since I really was dialed in from a PC hardware stand point since I have been mobile focused. But feel free to set me straight if I missed something.

Ivy bridge uses intels 22nm technology and trigate (something like that) that will give it 30% performance boost with lower thermals and power consumption. Plus, intel 4000 graphics will support dx11.

That PSU is wayyy overkill for just one card, you would only need about 900W max for what you have, unless you are planning on going SLi

Thanks, any recommendations for the 600 type? It's been a while since I have been paying attention to that stuff.
Agreed that the psu is over kill, but I think it would have been cheaper to get a 600w psu and the case. 600w is enough for one card and overclocking
