How would you build your MONSTER rig ? (please be specific in parts)

This would take far too much time to do this and besides .. I really don't want to tease myself
theoretically building something that I know I wouldn't be able to afford ;(

I was just curious which platform ppl would choose....2011 socket, sr-2, sr-x mobos, Xeon CPU, ivy or sandy etc

I would say quadsli, but i'm not sure that would be something I would dream about at night.

My dream system has not even been released yet, I want two gk110 (gtx 780's) and a 8ghz hex core cpu.

Not sure on everything except 2 things. It will have 2 780 Hydrocoppers and all my watercooling fittings would be white bitspower compression fittings.

The only obvious choice if you mean a monster gaming rig would be the ASUS dual socket 2011 board, whatever top end Xeon E5's there are, 128GB of DDR-2133 RAM, quad SLI 680's, 2x Intel 530 series SSD in RAID0 for the OS, another 2x Intel 530 series in RAID0 for games on the SATA2 ports (since Intel chipsets only have two native SATA3 ports). Another 2x 4TB HDD in RAID1 on the next set of SATA2 ports connected to the jmicron chipset for mass storage. Also an OCZ RevoDrive on the last PCI-E port for a 2nd gaming drive. Dual Corsair H100 in a full size tower that has been modified to fit the coolers along the top. All connected to triple Catleap 2B monitors run at 7680x1440 resolution. The computer would be on its own dedicated 20A circuit to power it all, with a 1600w power supply.

Set up 32GB of memory as a RAMDisk for installing 1 game to, whichever game is your main one at the time. The RevoDrive would be a 960GB version for your Steam drive. Set up a 8GB RAM cache for the RevoDrive for even more speed. Set up another 16GB RAMDisk for Windows to use as virtual memory space for better speed. Use 16GB RAM as cache for your main gaming drive, and another 16GB of RAM as cache for the OS drives. That takes up 88GB of RAM, which leaves another 40GB free for running applications and games.

Also get a large professional grade UPS system for battery backup of the computer so you can always do a proper shutdown, which protects the write cache in RAM from losing data.

That is currently the best gaming rig you can get.

Sounds like a nice rig and all but for a dream rig, wouldn't you go a Custom Dual loop Watercooling setup with CPU and GPU's separated?
Chuck it all in a Custom Danger Den Case and I'll take it ;)
Man I knew I would drool if I started thinking about it lol ........grrrrrr lol

After hypers rather imperfect experience with quadsli 690's, I'm not so sure that's the perfect rig.

I think 8790 quad CF would be better. For my dream ring :) Monitors are 2B catleaps, 5x1 @ 7200x2560 @ 80Hz Eyefinity.

Everythink shit too. 6x 480GB raid 0 and 64Gb DDR3 1600Mhz memory. Windows is only one fast 240GB ssd.

:cool:

Lol, these kinds of threads pop up rather often on most computer forums. They tend to finish with everyone slitting their wrists when they realise they're not rich.

Seriously, given how quickly tech becomes out of date, with unlimited money I'd rather focus my energies on making a super-customised case and waterlog for the bling factor. E.g., like a certain someone did earlier this year: http://www.overclock.net/t/1202319/build-log-the-waterlogged-skeleton

Not sure I agree quad crossfire is a fantastic idea.

Nothing matter if you have money for quad GPU system. Is still more power. Show at least Fantastic.:rolleyes:

As I just experienced with quad sli (2x gtx 690's), it's terrible! Stuttering makes it unplayable. Great for benchmarks and showing off...but terrible for gaming. :(

I think this is the logic behind the Murderbox case. XD.
