Core i7 950 (3.02GHz) is $294.99.
Core i7 975 (3.33GHz) is $1,039.99.

There is not alot between these two CPU's, except for the price. So get yourself a Corsair H70 and get the extra 333MHz out of it for a lower price.

Those processors support triple channel RAM, so utilise that. With a good mobo and DDR3-2000 RAM, you will have excellent speeds.

Get a small (120GB or so) SSD, and a large 7200RPM drive. 120GB is for OS/apps, the 7200RPM drive is for your other stuff.

And why an integrated card? There are some good cards out that don't fetch much of a price at all.

Intel chipset mobo search on newegg (socket LGA 1366 for the i7): NONE of them have onboard video. Stop livin in the past, get an actual video card or I'll simply call troll on this thread.

10,000rpm HDD with integrated graphics?
WTF is this?!


LGA1366 with integrated graphics are server boards...

Just get a Radeon HD 68xx.

They are low power consumption, good, new technology.

Lol, I just don't need a good graphics card for the things I do, so I don't wanna spend that much money on one. Well, I since I guess I'm going all out on the CPU and HDD I might as well get a good graphics card to match.. So I'll probably get a Nvidia Optimus with 1GB Vram

It would be better if you simply told us how would you use your computer. Also, desktop computers usually do not have switchable graphics, much less likely (if any at all) in X58 boards.

Optimus? What the fuck do you even know what you're talking about? Are you actually even building this computer or are you just asking for a build for shits and giggles?

Good luck finding a video card from Nvidia called the Optimus.
Whlie your at it, you might as well ask if there is a card from AMD called Bumblebee.

Optimus is only on laptops, as far as I know.
Seriously, tell us what you're going to do with this computer so we can help you pick the appropriate parts.

And to be blunt, tell us or I'll lock this. Since it seems you don't need our help anyway.

D: I thought it was for both.

I'm gonna do programming... moderate gaming, and lots of virtual machine stuff. Like it's not like I NEED a computer like this, it's just I wanna be ready just in case I need to do something really demanding, like having 5-8 Photoshop windows with no lag. I just want a smoother computer in general

If you want no lag, the get as much memory you can afford.
A Nvidia graphic card as Photoshop* actually taps into CUDA
A beefy processor, of course not that extreme edition which cost $1000, just one that's within your price range.
