I recently got a promotion to associate producer at the studio I work for and I wanted to celebrate with a pc build that spared no expense....relatively... some of the builds on here are insane! I have been building pcs for about 11 years now. My first pc was had an XFX 9600gt and a Q6600, plus one of those those old thermalTANK... I mean thermaltake armor cases. If you know those parts, congrats you are old. The summer nights I spent playing on that pc inspired me to join the gaming industry. I always dreamed of owning higher end hardware too. I eventually moved on to getting midrange cards. I bought both Radeon and Nvidia cards, but I never could save up enough to get the highest end cards...the cards I really wanted. I also never had the monitor that needed the beasts. My last machine was a small ITX build with a gtx 1060, and a Intel Xeon E3-1231V3. I used the system mostly for 1080p gaming and VR development.
So now that I am not a poor boi, and I am doing what I love, why not live my child hood dream and get the highest end parts? That's what I did.
I love this system. It games on my new ultra wide monitor like a dream. I crush most games at higher than 60fps. Ultra wide is the new standard in my book. Its a game changer! Plus this higher refresh rate monitor really has spoiled me too. I can't go back to 60fps.
I will be updating this page on reviews for parts, and some benchies, but for now I am far too busy gaming =X. I also plan to do some minor cosmetic modifications as well. I like my cables, but my cpu power placement and the combs that the extensions came with suck! so I will be replacing those soon. Pics to follow
