  1. @unknownmiscreant TBH I don't know much about cooling solutions, so I just usually pick an AIO solution and call it a day, but if you can recommend something better (near silent operation at least in near-idle sounds tempting) I can probably pay someone to build it. I don't trust myself with water and electronics at the same time It would also be nice to water-cool my GPU in this build.
  2.

  3. Based on your suggestions @unknownmiscreant: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: AMD - Threadripper 1950X 3.4GHz 16-Core Processor ($799.00 @ Amazon) CPU Cooler: NZXT - Kraken X62 Rev 2 98.2 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($148.89 @ SuperBiiz) Motherboard: Asus - PRIME X399-A EATX TR4 Motherboard ($331.49 @ SuperBiiz) Memory: G.Skill - Trident Z 128GB (8 x 16GB) DDR4-3200 Memory ($2114.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Samsung - 960 EVO 1TB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive ($447.30 @ Amazon) Storage: Seagate - 4TB 3.5" 5900RPM Hybrid Internal Hard Drive Video Card: Gigabyte - GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB OC BLACK Video Card ($739.99 @ SuperBiiz) Case: Corsair - Air 540 ATX Mid Tower Case ($99.99 @ Amazon) Power Supply: Corsair - Professional 1200W 80+ Platinum Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($249.99 @ B&H) Case Fan: Noctua - NF-R8-1800 80mm Fan ($37.99 @ Newegg Marketplace) Total: $4969.63 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2017-11-24 05:50 EST-0500 Looking at a total price of about 5000 USD I wonder whether I should upgrade to an 18-core i9, Xeon or Epyc, or if it wouldn't be worth it.
  4. I usually don't overclock anything, 1080 Ti is *probably* fine (I was thinking about getting two of those in SLI, but I don't know if it makes sense for 3440*1440 in 60Hz). Keeping it moderately quiet (liquid cooling?) is also important, and I haven't mentioned it in my original post. I'm not keeping my GTX 1080, my current build will go to my girlfriend as a gaming PC.
  5. Tons of microservices, often dockerized. From time to time big data tools (Apache Spark comes to mind), data warehousing (ETL stuff) or data mining tools.
  6. I think it's easiest to go with the provided template, so here it goes: 1. Budget & Location Budget is around 7000 USD, assume the USA as location. 2. Aim This build will be mainly used for programming (stuff I write usually requires a lot of RAM), but gaming is also important. I play new titles, but I run emulators from time to time (mainly PS2, Wii U, the last of which actually has some hiccups from time to time on my current machine). I also plan on using this machine for some VR gaming. 3. Monitors 2x monitors, one is LG 34UC98-W, the second one is an older 4K monitor. I usually play on the first one with 4K screen disabled. For work, I use both. From time to time I stream games to my TV with a Steam link. I'm OK with playing them in 1080p, since streaming in 4K lags a lot (my Steam link is using a wireless connection). 4. Peripherals Already have all the peripherals I need. 5. Why are you upgrading? A while ago I've upgraded my machine (i7 2600, 16 GB RAM, GoodRAM 240 GB SSD + 1TB HDD) with a GTX 1080, which gave it a nice performance boost and set me up for games for some time, however, older CPU and 16 GB of RAM are starting to bottleneck my workflow. My other machine (maxed out 2015 15" Retina MacBook Pro) has a much faster SSD and I can tell the difference between them. I've decided to replace my current machine with something new, keeping just the monitors, keyboard and mouse. I'd like to have more cores (considering Threadripper or Core i9), 64 GB RAM (128 GB if the budget allows for it) and a better SSD.
  7. I have $1700 after buying GPUs and a monitor So the rest of the build should sum up to around $1700 total.
  8. Hey, I'm planning to replace my current desktop PC (i7 2600, 16 GB RAM, 1080 GTX, GoodRAM 120 GB SSD + 2 TB HDD). I play games (right now I have a ultrawide 1440p display, but I'm considering upgrade to 4k or ultrawide 38" 3840*1600). I'm quite sure I'll buy a 1080Ti when they are available and a second GPU (older AMD? Nvidia 7xx series?) to run things that do not run with Pascal, so dual GPU support is a must. After buying those GPUs and monitor my budget is around $1700. Any help choosing parts? 64 GB RAM is a must. Programming and gaming are the use cases for this build.
  9. Hey, I'm planning to replace my current desktop PC (i7 2600, 16 GB RAM, 1080 GTX, GoodRAM 120 GB SSD + 2 TB HDD). The thing is I sometimes really need to run OS X for some iOS development/debugging. I do have a MacBook Pro 15", but I prefer to work with a desktop computer when at home. I also play games (right now I have a ultrawide 1440p display, but I'm considering upgrade to 4k or ultrawide 38" 3840*1600). I'm quite sure I'll buy a 1080Ti when they are available and a second GPU (older AMD? Nvidia 7xx series?) to run on OS X (because Pascal cards are not supported on OS X). Without those GPUs and monitor my budget is around $1700. Any help choosing parts? 64 GB RAM is a must. Programming and gaming are the use cases for this build.
  10. I have a GTX 1080, but my girlfriend computer is still using old AMD 6950, so it would be a GPU for her
  11. Probably somewhere late next month as I have very little time to play with them now
  12. @Cruorzy I was afraid that my i7 2600 was going to cripple my machine's result, but it went just fine. It's a similar build to what you want to get.
  13. Old (upgradable) Mac Pro 4.1 or 5.1 maxed out (Maxwell/Pascal or some modern AMD card, 128 GB RAM, dual 6-core CPU, SSDs) vs current Mac Pro. You can touch upon multiple interesting subjects (for example older generation Xeon CPUs you've mentioned as a cheap gaming CPU, plus the stock Mac Pro CPUs are delidded which is unusual). You should be able to outperform the new Mac Pro for a fraction of the cost, which is really interesting for people wanting an official mac workstation without paying Apple tons of money. It would be a nice follow up to your hackintosh video.
  14. Yeah, it's great, but on my 6950 I'm pretty much limited to games at least 2 years old, even though I was surprised that Bioshock Infinite, GTA IV or some more lightweight games like Life is Strange worked well on very high settings in 3440x1440 and Defense Grid 2 could even do 4k. Update: I've bought GTX 1080 and there little to no difference between my machine the benchmarks I've seen on more modern CPUs. Everything works great
  15. Thanks for your answers! I'm really looking forward to this upgrade because right now I'm stuck with 4k at 30Hz (AMD told me that even that shouldn't work with 6950 and they were surprised). Besides that I wanted to add more RAM (64 GB should do), but that probably can wait a couple more months. Now let's wait and hunt for those Pascals
