Description

This is a gaming machine I do some programming on Virtual machines ( hence the extra ram for 3 to 4 VM's running )

I do plan on overclocking in the future. Some parts are overkill just for future builds and redesign of this machine.

Are you running a RAMDisk?

I have been wanting to try a RAMDisk as the speeds are supposed to be blazing fast. With 32gb you should be able to apportion 24gb to the RAMDisk and 8 for the opertaing system. Here is an article on it:

Good Luck!

$2k build with mid / low range SLI really budget cheap quality motherboard - 32GB of RAM and a 1200w PSU >_<

From the picture it looks like you have your graphics cards installed in the bottom 2 PCI-E slots... Your motherboard has 2 PCI-E 3.0 slots and 1 PCI-E 2.0 - THe top PCI-E slot is 3.0 and so is the one you have your top card installed into, that bottom slot is a 2.0 slot. To get the best performance out of those cards they should be installed in the top two slots the PCI-E 3.0 slots not the bottom two.

Thank you for the advice , I guess I mistook the slots I used for PCI-E 3.0 I now know I must flip the bottom card around.
