If this helps anyone building a PC for work - get a CPU that has high clocks rather than two cheaper Xeons. I've built a new PC at work (same as the one I have at home) for myself as the old 20-core started pissing me off and the instant I booted up the software - everything was so much smoother and faster!
For the best performance all-round I can only recommend extreme chips (5960X and 6950X), the Xeons, although they have more cores and could deliver way more power when rendering 3D (video won't benefit THAT much more over the i7s) - the slow clocks are just a pain to work with in all the other software (Photoshop, 3D packages, game engines, audio, etc). Learn from our mistakes :)
I am getting throttling on YouTube for some reason. Stuck at 1mb/sec. I have a slow 6mb/sec connection anyway, but at least that is enough for 1080p. Being throttled to 1mb/sec has me down to 360p. Speedtest shows everything is fine. WTF?
So the reason I use Vsync for all my games is because I get very noticably horrible screen tear when its off. This HAS to be becuase of my dated tele ? I feel my bechmark vids arent being taken seriously because of this :(
