Here's hoping to my Mrs not finding out the budget of this build :P
This all started out on a whimsical purchase of a prebuilt HP Envy desktop. Right on the spot I decided to upgrade the included GTX960 with an EVGA SC 980ti. Not long after that and several game crashes later I had to change to PSU to a larger one to accommodate the GPU. It was then that I thought I might as well start with a build from the ground up.
Took about 4 months to research, order and ship the parts (including several shipping mishaps - such is the fate of one living in an emerging market country). One Saturday I spent a good six hours completing the build and enjoyed every minute of it. Most of it spent on cable management and I still couldn't get it nearly as good as some of the other Phatenks Evolv builds on this website. Kudos to those guys who have really mastered the art of cable management.
Overall I kept the theme to a subtle stealth grey/metal and white with minimal RGB since I don't like too much lights or color in my workstation (thus my selection of Daskeyboard and Logitech MX Master wireless mouse rather than RGB gaming keyboard and mouse).
Using this setup mainly for productivity, light photo editing and light gaming. Definite overkill for what I do but hey the fun is actually in building a machine you know can gobble up most of stuff you throw at it.
Wish list for further improvements in the future:
(1) Another X34 monitor to put on top of the current one, (2) A nice DAC and amplifier setup, (3) Definitely need to improve the PC and desk cable management but figured I'll wait till I'm done with adding components to this setup, (4) Need to change the green light on the SLI bridge to white
Won't be doing any parts review since all of the parts used have already been extensively reviewed and covered by other users on this forum. Many thanks for the inspirations and input I got from all your builds.
