I have a few builds in mind, but I will test the water to see what others can come up with. I have $2350 I can put into a build. I already have a asus pb278q ips 27" 2k 1440p monitor, razer death adder chroma mouse and razer blackwidow ultimate keyboard. I will be using the computer for gaming on max settings, some programing, and astrophotography image processing via photoshop and pixinsight. I want the most "future proof" or value for performance and aesthetics are important. I'm thinking i7 windowed case (but quiet hopefully), 16 or 32 ram, 980 ti maybe? I don't know if I'd even use 32 I haven't gotten into image processing just yet. Cable sleeve kit and matching components are a huge plus. Also, I will oc. I would consider 4790 ddr3 if value is there with lower cas timings. 5820k, 6700k? A large enough psu to sli in future is a plus as well. Asus msi and evga are my favorite brands for hardware, corsair, coolermaster, or nzxt four case or cpu cooler. What can you come up with?

All black everything.

Not entirely, but it's still sexy as hell. The 6700k is a slightly better gaming chip, so if you feel you won't be near utilizing the 6 cores of the 5820k, you can switch out for a 6700k (I paired it with an SLI Krait z170)

Hey check this out! Beast of build! I think it's rather sexy looking! You can change the case to white or have a different one all together but you have loads of space in the select one for upgrades! Not that you'll need to upgrade anything!

This PC will definitely destroy all current AAA titles you throw at it! This PC will definitely crush demanding games / software and upcoming titles!

So anywhere here it is! http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Jackc2015/saved/39BnTW
