Before this I was using a Phenom II x4 + a 5770, so this is a huge upgrade.
Primary goal for me was to make a PC that could play any game released in the foreseeable future on max settings for as long as possible. I also wanted to experiment with the GK110 chips and their performance with video streaming/rendering.
Currently I am trying to do some custom fabrication with a Thermaltake Kandalf case and plan on moving the parts over to the new case when it is done.
