Ok guys... take a look over the list. Just want to get your input/ideas/suggestions/yay/nay/whatnots

A friend of mine approached me to put together a list of components for a server and 3 client servers. The main server, it will be his main system that he uses, will handle imaging type software and data storage data base. The other three will be users that will run multiple programs across two monitors. Each system needs lots of memory for multiple open programs and needs to be responsive. I put a list together for the two type of systems. They may be a bit over kill, especially the main server but I wanted each system to have the capability and the backup resources for when they really need it, either now or in the future. It's kinda like I rather have it available and not need it than to not have it when you really need it idea. So take a look.

>> Re: New System Specs
looks good to me. i would use arctic cooling mx-4 or gelid gc extreme instead of ac-5
maybe treat the server to a 2600k instead. on heavy workloads and in a server environment HT can come in handy.
also, if they don't absolutely need a graphics card in the client pc's then uping it to a 2500k and throwing out the gpu could work and be cheaper.
with that shopping list it might just be worth it to check out the microcenter deals.
the 2500k is $179 and the 2600k is $259

are you putting a intel 320 and a 510 in the server? i think the 320 would do.
there is also a decent advantage to be had by using a small ssd as a swap file.
i use a 40gb intel drive to offload the swapfile and other stuff

You can either be part of the problem or be part of the solution.
