The Ark Angel - Super Dimension Fortress Computer 2 (SDFC-2)

This is a new thread. This thread carries on the legacy of the SDFC-1. As such, this new computer DIY project consist of Enthusiast level hardware or rather SDFC class computing. Now, you might be wondering, what happened to the SDFC-1 from the other thread? Nothing has happened. It has passed on from my hands to a cousin whose love of technology and computers rivals my own. Long story short, he is young and the though of having something like the SDFC-1 is amazing for him, so it passed on to him.

That out of the way, I find myself now in need of a replacement. Obviously, since the SDFC-1 was made and thought of with 2009 in full gear, this new computer will be thought with 2013 (and maybe 2014) in full gear as well.

I've got a general idea of what this new SDFC class computer needs and will require. I am open to suggestions and input you guys will have.

General idea:
  • Intel Haswell CPU or current Ivy Bridge (X79 class motherboard support)
  • nVidia GPU (high end. I'm thinking the 680 series [no SLI])
  • Western Digital RE3 1TB drives (once again, 4 in RAID 10) [Storage and Apps]
  • 2x SSD [Recovery and Main] (this time, there are so many out there, it is a tough choice. One thing I know, is no SandForce controllers)
  • 1200W Corsair Power Supply (Given than nVidia GPU is present, I feel the power requirement will have to go up)

Thoughts? Comments? Fire away!
