Get an am3+ mobo to be compatible with the new amd cpus not released yet. Your intel mobo is not compatible with your intel cpu. Ram is cheaper in pairs. And everything can be lower price when buying in combos.

Fill this out so we may help you pick better parts for your needs. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261222-31-build-advice

One more thing, do you live by a microcenter?

Hey Lukums, I think I've helped you out before correct? Anyway, I can decimate those prices. Especially since your Intel build isn't compatible :D
But first, some suggestions.
-Swap to 2500k. Acts identically in gaming.
-Get 2x 6950's. Will blow away almost anything else.
-Get some cheaper ram. There's some G.Skill ram on sale right now, faster stuff and $40 cheaper!

I assume this is something you made on Cyberpower or similar? If not, you have amazing formatting.

Ahh, it's not as bad as I thought. Even still, I'd rather go GTX 570x2 or 6970x2 as I can't see there being a big drop in performance.

Thanks for the link HERE WE GO!

Approximate Purchase Date: 25th of June 2011

To clarify I'm making 2 rigs 1 AMD which I know nothing! about I won't even bother pretending the other Intel perferably low cost but as someone else said a BANG for a Buck.

If anyone is aware on Aion high detail HD demand they will know what I'm after and what I'm trying to achive I've been researching a 6 monitor array for a while now and seeking if anything can handle 6 monitors with 55-60FPS high detail for advance gaming.

Budget Range: 1,500 for Intel 800 for AMD

Parts:

System Usage from Most to Least Important: GAMING GAMING GAMING I didn't know there was anything else we could do on computers...

Parts Not Required: Keyboard mouse, speakers,


Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg but if you can supply a better one please do!

Country of Origin: Australia - happy to order parts over seas


Parts Preferences: Honestly don't care


Overclocking: Yes - But I'm leaving it stock if that makes sense to anyone having a water system only for looks - I'm aware of the extra costs and hassles but that's what I want.

SLI or Crossfire: 100% yes


Monitor Resolution: 6 array montior display eyefinity - Already have the 22" monitors and stand

The bad ass intel rig would be this,

i7 2600k sandy bridge
2x6990 + 1 6970
Fatality 67 or the UD7 board
8GB 1600hz corsair dominator! ( I like the red )
2 Gigabyte fans on top of the cards.
Silverstone heatsink with 2 tubes for WC
OC to 4.8 1.48v-1.5

Problem is I don't find a need OC, money is not a concern the concern is if I need it to do what I want 6 monitor array

Shits n giggles, but possibly to run 3 monitors on each as stated in my previous post I'm attempting to reach 50 FPS in aion HD
as far as my research is taking me so far it's been said it's not possible.

I have high doubts that the 1 card could not possibly support 6 monitors on HD at 50FPS anyway getting a bit off topic.

I'll leave it up to Tom's Hardware.

Tell me what to buy within reason for a beast machine.

Go for your lives.
