Here's my current setup: getting to 10 posts - this is no. 7
Note: only the GPUs and power supply have been added from my original 5 year old PC. I wouldn't buy this configuration as a new standalone mining PC - its a workstation/server/mining hybrid.
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 - this power isn't required for mining but it allows me to CPU mine/work as well
MB: Asus P5E Deluxe - has 2x PCIe 16x and 2x PCIe 1x - so good for 4x GFX cards - PCIe speeds are not a determinant of hash-rate so using a 1x or 16x socket is irrelevant
GPUs: 2x Sapphire R9 280x (700+ kh/s each) - cheap, cool and under-volted for low wattage mining - took some tweaking but running stable 24/7 with only 40% fan speed at stock frequencies
Memory: 4GB DDR2 - 2x 2GB sticks - system uses 750MB of system ram per GPU - assign 250mb system ram per 1GB video ram - ie: 3GB GPU card = 750mb ram, 4GB GPU card = 1GB ram - no need for 8GB ram for dual card setups as many suggest, just save your money.
PSU: Corsair RM850 - 850W power supply - good for a 950+ peak wattage. - headroom to run another GPU and current 4 HDDs, digital tuner, fans and burners
