About to buy a high performance box. Looking for thoughts on:
- new core i7 - 6 core extreme processor - the 980? Yeah it still is $1k
- the nVidia quadro's vs the new ATI Fire Pro GL cards? I am specifically looking at the V7800 which for the money looks like it crushes the nVidia card for similar dough (that being the FX1800).
- Disc drives for 4 drive raid 0 array - say 500 GB drives - probably looking at WD Caviar Blue 7200 RPM drives.
- SSD for the boot/system disc?
- Motherboards recommendations? Currently looking at the ASUS P6x58D
- Power supply size? Corsair TX750W?
- CPU cooler - air. Noctua NH-U12P SE2 Heatpipe Cooler W/ 2XNH-P12 120MM Fans?
- Noise - would really like it to be quiet.
- Cool master cases?
