PhantomX is my preparation for virtual reality gaming and the upcoming release of Occulus Rift. Granted, I could have gone with a less powerful machine to start with, I wanted to have something that is streamlined, powerful, and a bit of eye candy!
I will primarily use this rig for gaming (Dragon Age: Inquisition, SWTOR, etc...). However, I also reverse engineer malware so will create a separate partition to run my many virtual machines for analysis purposes.
Eventually I plan to add another graphics card and expand to 64GB of RAM, but didn't feel it necessary for the current state of the gaming market.
Let me know what you think of the build. Parts are still on the way, but I'll post pictures once I am finished building it.
