I would like advice on what hardware will be optimal for a pc that is going to be doing alot of sql querying,
and python code execution

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Approximate Purchase Date: next month or so

Budget Range: 1,500 - 2,500

System Usage from Most to Least Important: data mining, data visualization, internet browsing

Parts Not Required: mouse, monitor, speakers

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: No idea

Country of Origin: USA

Parts Preferences: No idea

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: I dont know

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1200

Additional Comments: I have been thinking about using a solid state drive for faster reading. I will be doing 90% reading, 10% writing for database stuff. I dont know how to keep the right proportions on the quality of my componenets aka: do i focus on getting alot of ram and a good SSD, or do i even it out between those and the motherboard and cpu, or is the cpu whats really important for this kind of stuff? I hope there is enough info here about what i want to do to make an informed decision. If you think i would benefit greatly by spending a little more, please let me know. Thanks for any help!

NOTE: Get 24GB RAM if want and use RamDisk and make the 4GB of RAM as a Disk and put stuff in than it'll be faster Or buy/Download from sites and use like 12GB from 24GB and make it a Disk... It'll make stuff go faster if it's portable like make the browser put history in it(I forgot but it's something like this and is about cache) which well make you browser way faster as site loads just like a blink of an eye...

CPU: http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=I7-980BOX&show=p#
NOTE: This is not the Extreme version as it dont have the X, the 980 is a replacement for 970 with faster speed at same price... Also im not sure if it came with stock heatsink though but it sure, as most did...

PRICE: near $2150-$2200

NOTE: You can go with SB(sandy bridge) build but x58 is still the Best/High-end builds(But way expensive).. Also you can switch the 980 for the 990x at $2500-$2600...
