We mentioned in the initial post to this thread that an AMD CPU probably makes more sense.

While it may seem like a lot of money, we do have a few ways to help justify the cost.
  • We sold a pile of old parts and other things which easily funded more than half the cost of this system. So, in a convoluted way, that was "free" money.
  • We plan to keep this computer for five years, so the cost per hour is not-so-scary.
  • We are debt-free (highly recommended!) so we have a bit of financial flexibility.
  • We don't use drugs, alcohol or tobacco and we don't have cable TV. Those kinds of habits can really add up!

Gulp! Wow!!!

I don't think my budget is going to be anywhere near that!

I just need to drive six (6#) or so monitors and run lots of VMs. So I'l be aiming for at least 128 GB of RAM.

A friend of mine's son was recently given a very nice AMD system. Twelve core or something. WinCrows seemed pretty snappy (as did, of course, Mindcraft... Sigh...).

The wires and cords on the backside of the case are really messy, but we don't plan to look at them very often!

Just wondering... Have you ever watched the Terry Gilliam film "Brazil"?

If not, please follow this link...

I have sometimes found my own life a bit like this. Seriously.
