So, time to do a build log for my new gaming rig.  The primary goal of this rig is to max out BF3 in any way possible.  For now 3 GTX 580 3GB HC cards are ordered.  I will be adding one more before BF3 is out though.
 
The hardware specs of this rig are:
 
Evga SR-2    
(2) Xeon 5670's    
24GB Corsair Dominator Ram @ 2000 mhz
(3) Evga GTX 580 3gb HC cards in SLI
9 C300 64gb SSD's raid 5
2 intel 510 120gb ssd's raid 0
3 WD 1TB HDD's in raid 5
Little Devil v8 Case
 
Final Pics:

    Man, this is way too much power for 3 u2411's! 3xu3011 FTW! For 3 u2411's, 2 OC 580's definitly are enough.

    Can't wait to see the build pictures. Makes me want to get started on my new rig. Ugh for no finances to fund it.

    Nicely done so far. I laughed about the 'haircut' that you gave the memory.
