The ultimate gaming rig.

No case for easy access and better cooling. Motherboard: some supermicro server board of ebay, for better stability. Dual quad core xeons, because modern gaming is all about dem cores right?

16GB memory - more dimms = better.

Custom heatsink mounting for better cooling.

HD 7750. Gives me 20-30 fps on most titles, for a more cinematic experience. Anything more is overkill.

High quality, custom 3D printed GPU mounting system.

750 watt gold rated modular power supply; not at all overkill.

I prefer Hard drives over SSDs - the longer loading screens give me time to contemplate the meaning of life. 

 

On a more serious note... this was my first PC, built a couple years ago when I was very short on cash. The PSU was leftover from a short stint of bitcoin mining (I almost broke even!). For about $350 usd all up, this was a good way for me to get into PC gaming, and for video editing it's actually fairly great.

someone is waiting for DX12...

Here's hoping it lives up to the hype, I may actually go back to this rig (with a better GPU).

Thats that. If you need to get in touch chances are you can find someone that knows me that can get in touch.

Fair. Been sitting on a shelf the last six months so I haven't bothered, but I know I should. Every time I see it I feel like a bad person.
