People, I built this PC in 2013! Just putting together a build page to keep up with it. Only thing recently added was the 240GB SSD

Looks to me like there might have been a lot of reused equipment; showing the original prices would have bumped the cost that the price list shows. I would have consolidated the storage even more (maybe a 4TB HD and a 500GB SSD) and a different case (Fractal R5 or something along those lines), maybe Win 7 Pro OEM instead of Ultimate. It would still be a great budget editing system. And the money saved means better monitors or headphones or a better DAW or even an audio interface. I agree that the part selection could have been better optimized to save money in the budget, but that doesn't mean he had to go Intel for the build either.

Crushing a lot costs money, if you do it Intel style.

And I hadn't gotten as far as adding the monitors, keyboard, mouse, UPS, monitor-grade speakers, OOD, headphones or DAW.

You're just an Intel fanboy.

If you look at the costs for the larts, you could easily see this is an older build. It wouldn't make sense to spend that much on a build like this now, but that's because part prices have dropped drastically since then.

And overpriced. Let's not forget that.

$305 for a i7-4790k? When a i7-6700k runs $315? How in the hell do you justify that? Where the hell is the price drop that should be there? If you have cash to burn and you don't care about affordability, go Intel.
