The HOTTEST, SEXIEST computer you can have for $3600

Title says it all. This is the HOTTEST and SEXIEST computer for only $3600! You will not find a better one for the money. Thanks to others for giving their feedback. :D

CPU: AMD FX-9590 - AMD makes CPUs that run hotter than Intel's, so by default they're better. This CPU is the best, it gets hot just thinking about stuff. You cannot do better than this! Overclock it for even more sexiness!

CPU Cooler: Prolimatech PRO-SAM17 Fanless - They say that you have to liquid-cool the FX-9590. But that does not bring out its maximum hotness. The only way for the FX-9590 to reach its true potential is to passive cool it! That's where the PRO-SAM17 comes in - with this, you guarantee that the CPU stays smoking hot!

Motherboard: Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 - You want to be able to overclock, right? That way your CPU can become even hotter. Therefore I have gone with this motherboard which will let you do that!

Memory: G.Skill Ares Series - More RAM is sexier! But not too much; that just looks wasteful. 16 GB is a great amount for this computer! Went with blue so that everything matches nicely. :)

Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1 TB - We are not having an SSD in this computer. SSDs run cool. We want this computer to be hot! Therefore a hard drive is better.

Video Cards: 4x VisionTek Radeon R9 290X - AMD makes the hottest running video cards right now and the R9 290X runs at a wow-inducing TDP of 300W! With four of them, you can be completely certain that your computer will always stay hot!

Case: Inwin 909 (Silver) - Just look at this case. Is this not the most beautiful thing you have ever seen? The entire side panel is glass so you can see all of the hotness inside. I dare you to find a better looking case for the money. Even if you do, it makes sense to spend more for sexiness anyway. :D

Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA G2 1600W - You could go for one of those 80+ Platinum power supplies but why would you want that? The less efficient the power supply is, the hotter it runs. The SuperNOVA G2 is 80+ Gold rated, which automatically makes it better than its homely P2 cousin!
