    £5k ($7.8k) build help please

    so i have finaly gotten a dream job and i am planning on building a super high end pc for 3d animation rendering and games production aswell as playing, recording and editing videos for youtube.

    so far i have:
    CPU: Intel i7-3770k
    GPU: 2x GTX 690
    Ram: 4x8gb (32gb) Corsair Vengeance 1866MHz
    Motherboard: Asus Maximus V forumula z77
    Case: Cooler Master Cosmos 2
    Cooling:
    CPU,GPU,NorthBridge = Custom liquid cooling
    RAM = Cooling fan/ no cooler
    Liquid cooling radiator(s) = 3x120mm rad + 2x120mm rad
    Cooling fans = Corsair SP series
    Harddrive:
    Boot Drive: SSD (Unconfirmed model and size)
    Storage and media: WD Green caviar (unconfirmed size)
    PSU: open to suggestions
    looking at getting a Sea sonic platinum 1000w
    Optical drive: blueray reader and burner (unconfirmed model)

    but i cant figure out what ssd, psu or ram to use, i want to get realy high end stuff and max out everything for it so i wont have to upgrade.

    post what you would suggest or a entire build spec

    IF you whant to wait to but a 2'nd 690 ( one 690 uses 2 680 gpu's ( if i dont remember wrong ) so they are sorta in SLI on one card ) you can save some monney there if you whant to.
    psu 1000W or 1200W i recomend IF your going to expand more later ( and if your going whit 2 690 ).
    ssd minimum 128 gig and get a drive where you can store programs and games on so you dont fill up the OS disk, more then 70-75% and the lifespand will go down on it ( some one typed so on a post on this forum some where ).
    i use a ssd for OS and one for games, and a hdd for backup/storage.

    the idea is to do quad sli with 2 cards for better performance for games production and animation rendering.

    im also thinking of getting 2 ssd's
    1 ssd for boot and programs, another for games.

    i am looking at the seasonic platinum cause i would like it to be silent run aswell as super high performance

    im also planning on building a LAN pc aswell after this so any suggestions will be amazing also no price limit on it, just not liquid cooling it or doing sli/ crossfire.

    I've not used one myself but I know several people that are happy with the high end Silverstone PSU's.

    to be honest, for a setup like that go whit a 1000 or more, you have the watercooling and fans, and the 2 gtx 690 cards, just that pulls some power.
    for the ram , go whit single kits, never go dua kits ( 2 diftent kits even if they are the same )l unless your 100% shure they are compatible.
    i guess you have read that before and so on.
    ssd, mabye a 256 or a 512 would suit you for os ( dono how menny games you do ) but mabye a 128 or a 256 there ( ssd's )
    1 or 1.5TB on HDD ( cheeper then a 3TB one ) or a 2TB. mabye split em up ( partittion ) just in case one dies ( had a few that did die on me here )

    If this is to be a workstation more than a gaming rig then I would consider building two separate purpose-built rigs. There are advantages to Quadro when it comes to workstations but they aren't good gaming cards.

    its suppose to be part time work station, the reason why i am spending £5k on a super high end gaming pc is to counter the need for a £5000 graphics card and keep it running fast cause of the CUDA cores over the 4 gpu's

    lan pc ( depends on what games to play or storage your after )
    bf3 = 670 - 680 plays it well
    128 ssd for OS and 128ssd for games and mecanical for storage.
    amd is cheep, but dont suport pciex V3.0 yet, intel more expensive and suports 3.0.
