  • 56 months ago

Hello everyone!!

It's not every day that a competition is on the forum. In this competition you can show how well you can create a virtual PC. Everyone gets 30 minutes and at the end the result are down the page. Its my professional opinion.

The conditions No OS, no monitor and no accessories (location = United States).

This is my build (example): http://pcpartpicker.com/p/QG3CYJ

Thanks and have fun!!

you'd use one of the smallest full towers with a plastic exterior, a psu that takes up half the bottom length of it, an air cooler and three 10K rpm mechanical drives?

I know, but I take just a case to complete my build, I don't will buy an NZXT Phantom 530 case.

That's way overkill. I already talked to him about it and sent him this. This is HALF the price for WAY better performance. More than 2 Titan's causes stuttering. You didn't even put Sky-lake processor and all SSD storage.
