Hi People..

Well in my previous post / threads I have stated I'm starting a new PC.. A new thread was created regarding Motherboards & Water Cooling.. Water Cooling is an ongoing topic want to study it in detail.

I require more details on the best water cooling parts.. Require assistance for that..

The Rig that I will be purchasing is as below :-

Well the power supply is superb, but it is probably overkill, and you can save money with a lesser one...unless you really want to drop the buck$$$. And that brings-up the most important question: How much do you want to spend? Also, exactly what do you want to do with this system? Without knowing the answer to those questions it is kinda hard to recommend anything, mojo!

I'm pretty sure he wants a hardcore gaming rig.

From his motherboard/cpu topic, I got that impression, and that price wasn't a factor.

For the HDD, I'd have to think he'd want a SSD for fast load times, but I've never found loading times too much of a problem on a normal SATA 7200 RPM physical disc drive.

And that introduces another question we need to ask: How much storage space is needed?

Thanks for the reply..

Spending budget is around $5,000 GBP, I require a Powerfull Gaming Rig.. But I do know with the amount of power i will have other things can be used..
For prodectivity, Movie decoding, Creativity.. Etc...

Well.. good question..

I require 1 SSD which will be for only booting. Meaning Operating System Will be on it ONLY.
The second one SSD / SATA II will hold the installed aplications..

Then I want a further 5-6 SSD / SATA II for a further extra space each represting..

1 Will hold backup data, saving work, 1 for music & video's, 1 for installed games only.. 1 for video productivity... etc.. yout get the idea..

But cant decide if SSD / SATA II, I belive SSD is alot faster...

No video card yet?  If money is no issue, then you'd want to get a pair of Radeon 5870s running in Crossfire.  The only graphics set up faster than that is 3 Radeon 5870s running in Crossfire X.  But that would be ridiculously expensive.

Like I said money is not the problem, I am still reseaching on what card to use..

Well, the consensus is pretty clear that 3 x Radeon 5870s is the fastest setup possible for 3 PCI-e slots (I think that's what your board has, correct me if wrong).  If you really wanna spend the equivalent of $1140+ on graphics that is.  Nvidia offers nothing DX11, and 2x GTX 295s are slower than 3 5870s anyway.

What about 2 GTX 295 & 2 5870?

Ok another question is who is creating the ultimate Graphics Card's.. Ati or Nvidia ?

Crisis Causer

You cannot mix different brand video cards, so no combining a 295 with a 5870, sorry mate.[:'(]

Right now ATi is considered to have the fastest solution available, and that is as many 5870s as you can fit in your motherboard (up to 4*).  Nvidia won't have their next cards out for a few months, presumably.

*Should be 4, but driver support for more than 3 isn't really there yet.  Big deal - it's still is faster than anything else.

Supposedly, with the problems that TSMC and NVIDIA are having with their yields with the GTX 300 might be delayed longer than expected.

Corsair's P64 is one of the top SSD's available with a small storage space for your OS. They also have larger ones (P256 is the 256 GB verison).

If you read the hardware round-ups they can help you pick out items for your rig.

I suppose 64gb or 128gb SSD drive for use with only operating systems might be enough..
The other question is looking at the benchmark for GTX 295 single & 5870 single, The GTX 295 is licking the 5870, If they go 3 way sli or quad crossfire im not sure with which is better because I cant seem to find benchmarks or video regarding gtx 295 3 way sli vs 5870 quad crossfire..

Also the Asus Mars seems to be fastest in the world.. I hear..
