Looks really cool! I love the Orange and Black mix, does it looks good in person, I was thinking to do a AMD build very similar to this, so yeah.

Any reason for the older parts?

Hand-me-down parts...my Kids get gaming systems built from my old parts. This is my younger child's system (he is 11).

I wish you were my dad... I have the i7-920, it's quite a beast even though it's 4 years old. +1

Edit: I commented on another build previously. Most of the parts in this build are ones I have retired from my gaming PCs. This is my youngest son's PC. The only thing that was brand new was the case actually. The Motherboard, CPU, and RAM came from my old system. The video cards I purchased used for $50.00 each. and the power supply came from his previous computer.

Ah, that is pretty cool. I'm building a computer from retired parts of two different computers sometime in January. How well does this PC play things in general?

He really only plays Minecraft...His brother has the identical set up but with a single GTX 760 instead and plays everything we throw at it on max settings on a 1920x1200 monitor. https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/b/wn9WGX

Corsair cases are cable management on easy mode. I love my Corsair case and couldn't make a mess of cabling even if I tried - worth the extra $$.

Great "Frankenstein" build and a good way to reuse ageing components! @sup3rn4ut

How much did it cost to make? Nice job at the paint job by the way!

It was pretty inexpensive. We bought the Case and the power supply. The HD, MoBo, CPU, and RAM were are hand-me-downs from one of my older builds. The video cards I purchased used for something like $50.00 each from a friend. I can't take credit for the paint as that is the factory paint from Corsair. This is an older build as he now has a Gigabyte z77 Motherboard with a Core i7 3770K, GTX 1060 6GB, and several smaller SSDs in RAID :-). Thanks for looking!

That thing is a monster! The dual Xeon? Are you going to cure cancer with that?

What about my new dual Xeon? certainly not a "Budget Build". Beat that on price.
