Description

My gaming and work-from-home dev machine. Battlefield 4 at 2560x1600 on max settings at a super smooth 60fps is glorious.

Upgrade to http://pcpartpicker.com/b/HAW

  • Upgraded from 3x GTX 480s to 2x GTX 780 Tis
  • Added a Samsung 840 Pro 512GB SSD

The prices given are the original purchase prices, some of these components are more than 3 years old from the original build ( http://pcpartpicker.com/b/HAX ).

It's in some horrible need of real cable management.

you will get down voted without more pictures due to the rise in trolls lately

I'm new here, didn't realize it would show up in the list as soon as I added a picture. Too late I guess.

EDIT: I plan to add more pictures, I just meant that I'll probably be gone from the recent list by the time I do.

I tried to, but they kept disappearing from the build for some reason. I just readded one I had around. I also had intended on doing some wire management before I took more.. but I took the lazy route out.

If DDR4 becomes faster and more reasonably priced, I'll probably build a new system in the new year and will be sure to take a bunch of photos this time.

Well, it's spread out over more than 3 years, but doesn't include parts that have been replaced (PSU and the 3x GTX 480s). Not to mention the monitors are a huge part of the cost (nearly $3000) and will outlast this build.

Didn't realize it would show up as soon as I added one! I will have to take some more later, wish I'd waited to post it now.

Here I am looking through "completed builds" and I see 980x cpu and 780 Ti in SLI. So I tell my self, "hell yessssss" and click on the link to check out the build. I open the build, very excited to see this build, and then... to my shock... NO PICTURES!!! BOOO!!!! WHAT A TEASE !!!! :P

Sweet build dude! Its crazy to think that $8.4k have been dumped into this... well actually more if you count the old GPUs and CPU. Get some pics for us who can't afford it but like to drool.

Why is the first set of ram so expensive? Is that a typo or did you actually pay that much? Really nice build anyways. +1

This is the second set of upgrades for this original system: http://pcpartpicker.com/b/HAX

When I built the original system in 2010, that was the purchase price for that kit. It was painful, especially considering the second kit was less than a year later.

O wow. I honestly feel bad haha. I'm sure it was worth it in the long run. Maybe

With regards to the RAM specifically, not really. When I originally specced the system, I expected to be doing lots of VM work, so lots of RAM was crucial. That didn't end up happening so it was fairly wasteful. Oh well, it's only money.

Yeah, there is a lot more important things in life. Well, have a nice day.

I'm skeptical that this exists, with only one picture. Good job otherwise!

Also, what are you doing to make that much money?

That reminds me, forgot to take more pictures, I'll have to get on that!

I'm a software engineer.

Dude, my pc will cost about the same as this and be 60 times better. How did you spend this much money on this?

The description says how: "The prices given are the original purchase prices, some of these components are more than 3 years old from the original build." At this point, many of the components are 6 years old. Still, components have not improved by 60x in the last 6 years.

Wow.. I'm looking at this build now and... $200 for 12 GB of DDR3? I can buy 32 GB of DDR4 with that.. and a 256GB SSD for the price of an Asus ROG SWIFT 27"?? This is all amazing, amazing amazing...

  • 38 months ago

Because that DDR3 was purchased almost 6 years ago...

Weird. The original photo I uploaded kept uploading upside down. Now that I added another photo, the original one disappears every time shortly after I edit and re-add it.
