I will be doing a system review once the new system is up and going, system as a whole and the sum of its parts. Ive seen lot of money and time wasted (my self inculed) from not having the right system setup.
Im also wanting to add a new "Building & Maintaining U'r Blender/Gimp/Web Dev System 2.0" or combine the two stickys.
my upcoming system:(Will be using Blender 2.5 32bit, Gimp 2.6 32bit & Expression Web) After I move to 64bit Blender & Gimp, I hope 2x4GB 1600/CL6 kit will be out.
Intel i7(LGA 1155) 2600K
Mushkin 2x2GB 1600/CL6

This will be a complete system build, not an upgrade.
This system will be built for overclocking, overclocking is just fine for 3D & 2D work, but takes time and lots & lots of patience and knowing what your doing, and doing it without hurting your system.
