Computer Case

COOLER MASTER Elite 341 <br> Dimensions: 15.75“ x 7.28” x 14.37“ - 1648 cubic inches <br> Although this case is 15% larger than the smallest micro-ATX cases we could use, it is much easier to work with and provides superior cooling. <br> Price: $45 <br>


IIntel Core i7-930 2.8GHz 130W Quad-Core <br> Socket 1366 for higher-end X58 motherboards. It provides 40 PCI-Express lanes, which allows each device to utilize its maximum bandwidth. <br> The X58 motherboards also have 6 memory slots instead of 4, with support for triple-channel memory. <br> The downside to this CPU and X58 motherboard is a bit higher power consumption. <br> Price: $290 <br>

CPU Cooler

CORSAIR Cooling Hydro Series CWCH50-1 <br> A compact and maintenance free liquid cooling setup for superior cooling. <br> Price: $80 <br>


Graphics Card

EVGA or ASUS NVIDIA GTX 470 <br> Price: $350 <br>

Hard Drive

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB <br> Fastest 7200 rpm hard drive available. There are a couple of decent 2TB hard drives available, but many have found them to be much more unreliable than the 1TB hard drives. <br> Price: $90 <br>

Intel X25-M Mainstream 80GB SSD <br> Extremely fast read performance with pretty good write performance. Would be a great SSD for OS and programs. <br> Price: $215 <br>

There is a new SSD (soon available) that we could use instead. Crucial RealSSD C300 64GB. <br> Price: $150 <br>

Removable Hard Drive Rack

SNT-125B <br> Price: $12 <br>


G.Skill 6GB (3x2GB) <br> Used with the X58 motherboard. <br> Price: $150 <br>

Power Supply

COOLER MASTER Silent Pro 700 <br> 700 Watt, modular power supply. Has the shortest length (5.9”) available in high-wattage power supply. <br> Price: $120 <br>

Network Card

An extra basic Gigabit Ethernet card should do fine, giving us two total Ethernet ports.

Capture Card

We need a capture card that does uncompressed video, doesn't drop corrupt frames, and works on Linux. <br> Here's a card that is not too expensive $360: Sensoray Model 811. I emailed the company to see if it would drop frames or not.<br>
