Simple but BEAST Status - New Gaming PC Build 2016 - Core i7 6850k - GTX 1080ti (x2) SLI - 7680x1440 - M.2 SSD - 8TB (UPDATE: Upgraded cards to Ti's) Page 5

Special thanks to Audiofanaticz for the emotional support haha...he also saved me $175 bucks by helping me price match something in my basket that was on sale. Then he turned around and cost me $500 MORE by telling me i should get a m.2 hard drive which was north of $800 by itself. Oh well i LOVE IT.

This entire build cost me $4600 with tax. (monitors not included).

The first build (that i "fixed" LOL) cost me $6500 (without the monitors)

Monitors are a few years old but are $800 each. You can do the math, this is a beast setup all the way, even with the simpler (non full loop) setup i have now.

thanks for watching!

Youtube video coming soon....this thing is more fun than i can explain at these resolutions :D

Somehow your computer builds are more insane than your car builds. And that's saying something. Wow.

There is a new one out now.

Firestrike is old news, I think the new one is cloudgate or something, still 3dmark software.

All of that amazing gear...

In that poopy little case :(

Can't understand what led you to use it, but cases are 90% preference anymore.. so I can't judge too much.

and this is coming from somebody using a Thermaltake Level 10 GT snow edition.. people either love it or hate it, but it's functional as hell.

Dope fucking build though man. You better be playing Star Citizen with it whenever that's actually a game (Star Marine next week tho get HYPE)

I wouldn't call it "poopy". This case is the perfect size for this project. It has swinging doors on both sides which i love. It also fits everything just right. My last case is a gigantic 900D and coming from that I like this one a lot. Sorry but i'm not a fan of Thermaltake anymore so i guess it is preference. Please explain how a larger case will benefit me in this situation.
