Electronic technician, planning an upgrade from my gen1 Intel I7 extreme with 16 gig of RAM, 4 core (max at the time). Always wanting to build bleeding edge with hardware available at the time. The above PC lasted 10+ years as a result.

Inspiration for this build is my new 49" monitor. The video card is PCIe x16 Rev 2!!!* Windows 7 Ultimate keeps timing out the driver for my new Rev 3 video card when I view 4K- which kills the audio through the HDMI port. My friend introduced me to this site. Absolutely Incredible. Kudos kudos to the hosts.
