Well, it is that time again. I have had my current PC for a little over 3 years now, and I built it from day one to last 3 years. With a failing GPU now, I figure right now is better than ever to build. My current PC specs are: CPU: Q9550 2.83GHz @ 4.0Ghz GPU: HD 4870 Ram: 2x2 ddr2-1066 4-4-4-12 HDD's: Too many to list Mobo: Asus P45 P5Q Pro PSU: 700 Watt Antec Now, this PC is going to become a server for hosting files and maybe a game server here or there. I have the internet speed for it. As of this minute, my shopping cart on NewEgg consists of this: CPU: Intel Core i7-2600K GPU: 2x SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6850 1GB Ram: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 HDD's: 2x SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s SSD: OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTXE60G 2.5" 60GB SATA II Mobo: MSI P67A-G43 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 PSU: Thermaltake TR2 RX 750W Bronze Heatsink: XIGMATEK Gaia SD1283 120mm Case: COOLER MASTER HAF 912 TOTAL: $1286 Shipped I have done a lot of research, and from what I can tell this is the best way I can spend my money. Granted I could probably find slightly better prices from different websites, but to make my life more organized and simpler, I am sticking with NewEgg. To help keep the comments from going crazy, I feel I should include some info about what I do on the PC to justify this kind of build. I am not a huge gamer really, but the games I do play are usually pretty beefy. Pretty much the only games I play are racing sims and ARMA II. I do a lot of video encoding, 3d work and photoshop work. Anyway, let me know your thoughts, or if there is a more price efficient route.
