What is your budget for this build? What are your preferred vendors from which to buy your components?

Unless you are doing C/C++, Java/.NET is not going to take very long to build requiring lots of CPU. I/O should be satisfied by the SSD (but you have to make sure your source and temp files are on it). Your project is what, a handful, dozens, or hundreds of projects? Are you compiling your own Linux kernel, or Chrome/Firefox browser?ms__ wrote:* A lot of programming (Compiling, building multiple component )
How big? Are you processing US census data? What package are you using? You can be dealing with large datasets in Excel, or you are doing simulations in Matlab, or some statistics stuff with SPSS. If it is possible, please list what software that you are using. Can the processing be done in vector algorithms in parallel, that GPU processing may be of use?ms__ wrote:* huge data processing, crunching tons of data (think of big data , prime numbers processing etc.,)
Are we talking meme/lolcatz kind of bitmap editing, or 15MP+ photos with a ton of Photoshop filters? Some Photoshop filters are starting to use GPUs as well.ms__ wrote:* Occasional Image editing and rarely movie editing ( for my hobby )
As much as you think you are not gaming and don't need any "gaming GPUs", 2 out of your 3 use cases may have options that begin to utilize GPU for accelerated processing. You will need to let us know what software you are dealing with and how you are processing your data (only share if you can of course, if you are under NDA/gag order) so we will see if you need higher end GPUs. As others have stated, 2x dual-DVI cards are in order if you are going for 1440p 27" monitors, this pretty much means you need to go discrete and it can't be the cheapest cards.ms__ wrote:Note: I will not do any gaming

Not a problem I can buy some cheap speakers or some bluetooth speakers to get rid of wires (my wife hates wires)
I think if I could get such monitors I do not have to spend on the Ergo Arms as extra. Do you think Separate Ergo Arms would help?
