You could start by not wasting money on SLI (in most cases, lol).

Even if i wanted just one, I couldnt even get that. Looks like walmart of all has the best prices but they are never in stock.

You could always buy one from nVidia directly if you're willing to wait.

Where'd you end up buying from?

The cheapest ones i could find would add another $2400 to it. Insane.

Cancelled my order from Nextwarehouse, they were basically holding my money till some thing came in. Currently need video cards and a power supply.

If im spending this much i minus well get a titan xp. Another choice is wait for the new cards to come out. But asus did t release their 1080 until june 2016. Thats 4 more months.

To be fair, that kind of is what buying on backorder means.

Yeah that was my mistake, I was under impression that they knew they were getting another shipment in X date.

Sounds like they could have been more clear with it.

If push comes to shove you could get a card like a 1050 ti that's overpriced but not completely egregious; then get in early on the next series of GPUs with the money you saved.

For a PSU you could get one like this: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Vq38TW/corsair-power-supply-cp9020094na

Oh man! Im glad I cancelled that 1200w, because I just remembered that I ordered from cable mod for a cooler master v1000. HAHA this is fun. Guess that solves the PSU

In the future i may do a custom loop, but yeah i want this pc to last years before i need to do anything to it. As far as prifs, i wanted the whole thing to work with aura sync.

No one really needs any of this stuff. I bought 2 because i want a raid0 set up.

Is this just for gaming?

Yup, wanted a really nice pc since I was a kid. Im so excited for this. Timing couldnt be any worse though.

Well, it's definitely overkill, haha. I'm definitely jealous, though!

Maybe just get one GPU? You're probably not really going to see the performance of SLI - some games actually run worse in SLI.

I bet you saved up for a long time for this. I'm finding myself in a similar situation (as are a lot of gamers). My wife finally asked me to upgrade her computer so that she can play some stuff with me, but even a GTX 1050 is around $200. Stupid crypto-miners.

Yeah ive decided i wanted to do this last summer and started with no knowledge. Tons and tons of youtube videos and my spouse is tired of hearing about computers haha. Im not looking for practical. I want bonkers performance. At the same time i dont want to spend 80% mark up on gpu's.

As far as the sli everyone is always so against it. If its such a terrible experience I can always sell one, but i want to experience it, tinker with it myself.

That doesn't really make any sense. NVMe is already fast already. No need for a no redundancy RAID 0 setup. And, at that, NVMe's speed is unnoticeable compared to SATA in most situations (pretty much all situations a gamer will experience - save the seldom large game disk transfer (couple seconds time saved at most)).

Rather than get NVMe that you can't notice, why not double, or even quadruple your SATA SSD space? You could even get 2 SATA SSD's and one HDD and set it in a RAID 10 configuration (not that I am really saying you should do this, but you could). That would increase speed even more and give you redundancy in the event of a drive failure. That will benefit you much more and for longer.

Yeah could have saved 100 bucks on hard drives and 100 buck here and there. At the end of the day its not what i want. Dont really care for redundancy since its for gaming, all my work is done on my laptop.

When i run out of space on this i plan on having a pair of raid 0 850 evo's

Maybe, but i got them for the same reason someone would by a piece of art. Just looks so good

don't think the headset is, and the keyboard can do some interesting things with other asus hardware, but nothing crazy
