    Need help building a dual xeon e5-2670

    Yeah I saw one for $99 on Amazon, but doesn't ship to Israel. Cheapest I found on eBay was $175 including shipping and VAT. *Add 17% VAT to that.

    Need help building a dual xeon e5-2670

    Yeah you'd be surprised... Also the components variety isn't that great, especially for anything other than a i5 or i7 4 cores gaming computer. I'm forced to buy a Motherboard for $400 because that's the cheapest X99 I could find. CPU: i7 6800k - $590 (i7 6700 is around $400) Cooling: Noctua...

    Need help building a dual xeon e5-2670

    I see, well nice to know that in case I do get the chance to buy stuff off US. Well I thought about it... i7 6700 would cost me around $930, i7 7700 $1000, and i7 6800k around $1650. Is it worth it?

    Need help building a dual xeon e5-2670

    You're right, forgot to edit it, I would go for Win7 Ult. I see, so as long as I only use the dual CPU and 1 SSD I should be fine with 600w. Found the same RAM for $50, shipping included. (add 17% VAT to it) This is very appealing indeed. Unfortunately, Newegg doesn't ship to my country. I...

    Need help building a dual xeon e5-2670

    Ya but I'd need at least 2 computers with i7 6700 to match the dual xeon performance, so in the end it's worth it. As for the RDIMM, my options are a bit limited since I will need to have it shipped to Israel, can't really find used sticks. How is this: New Samsung 64GB 8x8GB PC3-8500R...

    Need help building a dual xeon e5-2670

    Yeah the applications I run benefit from multiple cores. I talked to someone that has a dual xeon 2670 setup and its seems to be very effective for him for the same purpose. From the calculations I did (according to the data I got from him), I'd need 2.67 x i7 6700 to run the same thing he is...

    Need help building a dual xeon e5-2670

    I haven't purchased anything yet, the only thing I own is 2x8gb sticks and the GPU. I actually have 3 seasonic PSUs on my other comps, I'm a fan as well. What do you say about SeaSonic 850W 80+ Gold X-850 SS-850KM for this build? Should I get SeaSonic 850W 80+ Bronze M12II for $50 less? Thanks.

    Need help building a dual xeon e5-2670

    Hi, I have 2 i7 6700 and 1 i7 3770k. I'm looking to expand and thought a dual xeon would be better for my needs. I have no prior knowledge of workstation build, so based my build on this with few tweaks: Building a 32-Thread Xeon Monster PC for Less Than the Price of a Flagship Core i7 CPU...
