I understand "the more you read the more you change" LOL :D

I have spent too much time doing this and have FINALLY come up with a killer build that I just purchased today!

The “Steelbeast” CrossFire/EyeFinity Rig! Only $2k w/3 25in. Monitors!

This actually includes all the required accessories to run Eyefinity on Displayport for the lowest possible price. The GPU must be strictly chosen. It also includes tons of additional fans for the case and HSF! I left out a mechanical HDD as most everyone has those lying around. What do you think??

Sorry I will use the corsair below and the antec 900 case, but it looks like all I will use,

I came here 4 years ago for advise and built the following with everyones help and advise. It has been great but I am running slower and have the itch to open up the case!
I do a little graphics, picture, movies, database work, no gaming at this time andand definitly fast networking card for streaming video. I have a samsung 22 inch monitor.

I built in 07 from newegg parts:

Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX
Intel Core 2 QUAD Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz LGA Quad Core Processor
Corsair CMPSU-550V 550 W ATX12V V2.2 SLI Ready Crossfire
G-Skill 2 GB (2x1GB) 240 pin DDR@ SDRAM2 800(PC2 6400) Dual channel Kit
Nvidia GE Force 8800GT
Seagat Barracuda 7200.10 250gb 7200RPM Sata 3.0GB 3.5'

It is all a pretty Antec tower.

I am going to use win 7 64 bit.


Any advise on the upgrade or replace a few items or R and R.

Thanks everyone for any feedback or suggestions as Im ready.

Thanks,

Roth

That saved me a new case cause I kinda like the antec 900, what do you think about the rest of the parts, No ocing or sli as of now and when I do want to mess with it, it will probably be another rebuild anyway..
