Annoyingly, I got the wrong power supply (ATX instead of EPS) ... so I can't build it tonight sad.gif

However, I took the opportunity to upgrade to a 1000W PSU, so there should be no possibility of power problems now!

Good stuff. Can't wait to hear about it when it is built. Are you just using it for music stuff and multi tasking? Or are you a PC gamer as well?

Obviously with time all the components will be used as things progress. But at the moment there's nothing (that I'm aware of) that even uses 8 cores. Games that are only just coming out are starting to use more than one core.

I do have reasons for going 8 core ....

Reaper (my DAW) multiprocesses about the best of all the DAWs, so I will be able to run a gazillion plugins with zero latency - I have serious problems at the moment and didn't want to take any half measures, as I spend a lot of time mixing and recording music, and I record and play totally in the box so need a lot of CPU for that.

I also do a lot of 3D rendering which is extremely CPU intensive - I don't know for sure but I hope my 3d apps will use all 8 cores to advantage. I also do a lot of video editing and currently can barely preview my vids in real time on my current pc.

Plus, in 3 years, instead of being completely outmoded, it will merely be slightly slow.

Oh, and because I can biggrin.gif

Ah yes, of course!

They are ...

1. A computer shall not harm a human or through inaction allow a human to come to harm
2. A computer shall obey orders given to it by a human unless such orders conflict with the 1st law
3. A computer shall protect its own existence where such protection does not conflict with the 1st or 2nd laws

Problem is, all computers are gits, and mine regularly harms me by messing stuff up, and practically always disobeys me .... only law it doesn't break is law 3 ...

Having not read all the comments...
there is absolutely no problem with Vista Ultimate here on 2 cores and 4 gigs of ram. I mean no more than on XP so you will be fine.
