This machine will be a 3D CAD workstation, primarily for Siemens NX but possibly for Dassault Catia v5 or whatever comes along in the industry over the next 5-6 years or so of its useful life. It will, of course, also be used to do the standard office type applications and web surfing but come on, you can do that crap just as well on a core2duo box. The machine will probably never be overclocked, though since I have access to Microcenter it doesn't really cost me any more for teh K or for the overclockable motherboard due to the magic of Teh Bundlar. Durability and reliability is a major goal for this build, as is teh quietz and bang-for-the-buck factor.
Based on familiarity and prior experiences, right or wrong we're sticking to Intel for this build. Please don't suggest AMD due to higher bang-for-the-buck factor. I know. Don't care, don't care, don't care. http://www.southparkstudios.com/clips/152914/tynacorp
Since I refined this build, I don't think there's any particular area in which I'm looking for suggestions... I'm just hoping there is something I don't realize, or don't know, that would be helpful in better achieving the goals of this build. TIA for all comments.
