I built an x99 system for the home last year. Well in the past month or so my wife went into an even more minimalist stage. And at one point I proposed the idea of building a small white pc.
About two weeks later these parts arrived and this is what I came up with.
There is no dedicated gpu because we don't really use the computer at home for all that much. Email/youtube/and her blog. The x99 system I built was for video editing/3d modeling projects - but I didn't have as much time as I would have liked to work on them at the hours I would want to after our first child. So it's now at work with me where I can play with it all day.
Down the road if I end up editing some more at home I'll probably add another 8gb of ram and maybe a gtx960 or something from pascal. But this handles all of our needs for now.
I liked the way the build came out so much that I talked my mom into letting me build something similar except it will be using a silverstone mini itx case that I liked a lot and wanted to use for this build but in the end left it up to the wife.
And hp makes a pretty darn nice monitor although you can't really tell from my pictures here. There is no panel bleeding either those last pictures were taken in the dark with a cellphone.
