Advice on building a new system
Once I finish all my final exams and move back home, I will be buying myself a new computer. What I am looking for is the best possible system I can buy. I am prepared to spend up to about $4000 CAD. The system will be running Gentoo.
For the core I was thinking of liquid cooled dual xeons, but am also interested in athlon 64's (reason being AMD's boast of a 2000 MHz 'fsb' freq). Dual athlon 64's would be nice, but it appears to me the possibility of dual 64's is somewhat limited.
The rest of the system I have picked out to my satisfaction, it is simply the core of the system, if you will, that I am having trouble with. I would very much appreciate any advice anyone can give me.
