    Minimum of a 400 Watt power supply.
    (Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 26 Amps.)

    When I build my next computer, I wanna make something that's optimized for graphics processing, not gaming. I can't decide whether or not to go SLI or get a Quadro card. Or is a decent Quadro card still more expensive than SLI cards?

    E: It seems so.

    Anyway, it seems most of the hardware you recommended is more directed at gamers - any suggestions for what I do (batch processing, photography etc)? I plan to go 64-bit as I regularly get out of memory errors with my 2 gigs of RAM - I want at least 4 gigs. I guess my single core processor doesn't help with that much either. I don't think that I can afford anything above the high-end rig you posted, we'll just have to see..

    What price are you going for? Oh, so lower than high end. Ok, I'll give it a shot.

    To be honest, I'm not entirely sure.

    Well, from our conversation on MSN I guess the High End one without the DVD drive is perfect.

    Just added three workstation PCs, but the two expensive one's I'm still working with. Beware anyone that want's to buy a workstation that they are not (mainly) for gaming purposes. They are for things like modeling, video/image editing/processing, batch processing, etc.

    E: Ultimate workstation is lulz.

    The workstations are not for graphical purposes either. Xeon processor missing Nvidia's multimedia instruction set.

    That's exactly why those graphics cards are called workstation graphics cards.



    E: I don't see what multimedia instructions they're missing.

    Compare to Opteron. If I'm not missing something (except maybe the larger cache) they should be better suited.

    What does that have to do with the multimedia instructions?

    Also, no.

    E: And no again.
