I was looking at that one too. How often do you have to put water in there?

I heard the 2011's weren't going to see much use in the future, despite it being newer. I don't know if there's any truth to that. Not sure what I would do with 128 gb of ram though!

For $2750 you could get an i7-3970x and the Nvidia Titan when it releases.
An i7 3770K and a GTX 680 is a much more reasonable choice.
That's probably what I want, a 3770K and a GTX 670 or 680. Is the 680 fast enough to play games on the max settings right now? How long do you think it'll last in the future with the new consoles coming out?

for $2750 you can pretty much buy all the best stuff. i'd go with a intel or crucial for the ssd due to the reliability. and a corsair psu. for $2700 though you can waste a lot of money on buying the latest and greatest, getting second best saves a lot and is usually nearly as good. evga vid cards have a great warranty and step up program. 16gigs of ram is overkill, unless you need it. if you have money to blow why not. since you've been buying macs, I guess you do, lol.
also I'd probably put win7 on it. I have 8 on my tablet and its made for that. I don't see any reason to put it on my desktop.
I've always bought extra memory since it's not too expensive. I do a lot of work with raw files in Photoshop, but I never bothered to find out how much ram it's using.
