    Then nVidia's thermonuclear solution, the GTX 580 is suggested. You'll have spare $$ so, buy two. Also, if you can get them with water cooling parts attached so you use the left over $$ for a water cooling loop for them and obtain lower temps.

    A great guide for tiered pricing on components for gaming rigs.

    Do realize, that guide was made from the depths of /g/... I would do my research and use that guide as a reference.

    I know. I didn't say follow it to the letter, it's there for an idea of what to look for in a certain price range.

    It would be funny if people "from that place" would "crowdsource" up a guide with a mix of accurate and inaccurate information done up in a "this is done by really smart people" format, and rich, clueless, people would follow it and get ripped off without knowing it.

    You know, for the lulz.

    Example:

    Which i7 are we talking about? The old Nehalem based i7s? Or the newer ones? If my memory serves right i7 Extremes are at the old i7s only (for now).

    Wait, do you have $3000 NZD for just the GPUs or is it also meant to be shared among all components as well? Because if its shared among other components then downgrade that to a HD6870 or HD6950.

    All components maybe I can stretch my wallet as long as its good enough I guess ATI graphics chips are not up to scratch?
    Edit :stuff it I will get 2 GTX580's to run in cross fire.Now I am willing to spend $8000 on all components and dual graphics chip in cross fire should do good.BTW should I get the cooler master storm.

    If you breaking the bank with $8000 NZD, then you should get a Corsair 800D and do a water cooling loop.

    You are just trolling, nothing more, am I right?
    For someone wanting to build his own computer, you seem to be very ignorant about prices and components.
