FYI, the Intel Core i7 990x can't run with dual cpu configuration....:(
only Xeon Processors that can run (rather "allowed") dual cpu config....
Because one the QPI link in i7 "Gulftown" are disabled thus dual-socket for i7 is a no-no
oh, if i'm not mistaking, only Xeon X5500 and X5600 Series that have Dual-Link QPI

hey, I am quite new to all this pc building and stuff but I feel quite confident in myself (have always been a computer geek and I am a philomath)

anyway on to topic, I am intending to build myself a new desktop computer and I want some advice. so far the parts build I have sett up is as follows:

PSU:---------------Corsair AX 850W
Motherboard:----Intel DP67BG
CPU:---------------Intel I7 2600K
GPU:---------------EVGA GeForce GTX 570 1280 MB (x2 ?)
RAM:---------------Corsair Vengeance DDR3-2000 12 GB
Storage:-----------Western Digital VelociRaptor 300 GB
Western Digital AV-GP 2TB SATA, 32 MB cache
Optical drive: ---LiteOn IHOS104-37
Cabinet:-----------NZXT Phantom

total pricetag, about 2500 USD

first thing I want to know is what you guys think about the build as written above? good? bad? waste? any components that absolutely should be changed?
it will mostly be used for gaming but also for some 3D rendering

next is that I am uncertain of the motherboard, I want a good motherboard with good functionality, space and connections,
I feel the DP67BG has this (from one of OCC's reviews), but is there any better motherboards out there which have the same types/amount of connections or
more and that is also easy to "manipulate" (OC and so on)

Lastly its the cabinet I am slightly uncertain about,the mane reasons I choose it is because of the integrated fan control, size and the look, but does any one
know how its airflow is, is it a good cabinet or is there any that are that much better?


well then hope I didn't make a fool of myself and posted in the wrong place :P



Thank you guys/gals for any help you may offer

Is this fairly up to date yet?
Is my Razer Diamondback retro yet?
s

Graciously recommended from KB, is some muffricken Christian death metal. It is a must hear, it pushes envelopes, explores new ground. Words can't describe just now incredibly awesome this is. Cue the alter smashing, bench flipping, and bible reading while thrashing away at guitars and drums.

I witnessed regional Special Olympics and Challenge Day; there's far more intellect there than there is in internet arguments.
