Best PC ever!
While that is an overkill. PC gaming is awesome. Since recently most game releases are crap, i have gone back to playing some of the classics. Fired up Dosbox and started playing Conquest of the new world, its like a freaking time machine where you can load up any old game start playing relive the memories.
Complete waste of time and money IMO, $11k on that? That's just plain stupid! With that kind of money I would expect to look incredibly awesome! I love building computers, but even if I had tons of money I wouldn't spend that much. Last November I built: CPU i7 960 GPU EVGA GTX 570 Ram Corsair 6gb DDR3 1600 SSD crucial 64gb HDD 1 terabyte Sound card Claro Plus Case Cooler Master HAF 932 Full tower Speakers Logitech Z-5500 Monitor 46" lcd samsung 120hz All that under $4k
Nice. Not worth the money he spent, but nice!
He could run the new Samaritan demo from nvidia and crysis 1 in a separate window. :) 2560X1600 EACH!
actually each game could run on it's own set of 3 screens in 3d 1600p max settings. he could also convert 500gb of HD video, burn a blu-ray, do my taxes, launch the space shuttle, calculate pi, run prime 95, and download porn, all at the same time with NO problems.
Nice.. for the next couple of years at least!
More like couple of decades.
Horrible tower and it's not even liquid cooled? this guy is clearly a noob with a lot of money to waste. I could build a better one for that much cash, shit I recently built a i5 2500K clocked at 4.5GHz with a GtX 570 system for $980. I'm able to play almost every game at Maxed out settings at 1080p.
I agree, he doesn't even know how to take a picture lol, I'm yet to get a game that my computer can't keep up at 1080p! I can any games maxed out so far. Love my computer: CPU i7 960 GPU EVGA GTX 570 Ram Corsair 6gb DDR3 1600 SSD crucial 64gb HDD 1 terabyte Sound card Claro Plus Case Cooler Master HAF 932 Full tower Speakers Logitech Z-5500 Monitor 46" lcd samsung 120hz
Agreed as well. Hell I don't even PC game anymore and still built me this ~ Corsair 800D Case Corsair HX 850 Watt Modular Power Supply Corsair XMS Triple Channel DDR3 1600 6 Gigs Corsair H50 CPU Water Cooling ASUS P6T Motherboard Intel i7 930 Quad Core 2.8ghz CPU Nvidia GeForce GTX260 (given to me for free) Audigy 2 ZS Platinum Pro Sound Card w/ breakout box 1 Pioneer BD-RW 1 Pioneer DVD-RW 2 Misc Disc Drive Readers for other stuff 3 Hard Drives ~ 1 Velociraptor for dual booting (going to be swapped for SSD later) & 2 1TB's for storage, backup & etc. 4 Case Fans @ 120mm 2 Case Fans @ 140mm 2 Radiator Fans @ 120mm Logitech DiNovo BT Keyboard & Mouse combo for a little more than a $1000 which is aesthetically nicer, cleaner (between the dust/clutter/wiring spaghetti he has) and mine wouldn't take more than swapping in a GOOD GPU or 2 to lay down some good numbers!
Since we are all comparing rigs, i will add mine. i7 2600k OC'd 5.2GHz 4gb Corsair Dominator 1600MHz OC'd to 1866 with cas of 9-8-9-21 OCZ IBIS HSDL SSD 160gb (fastest HDD present) Sonic Platinum gtx 460 x2 in sli all housed in Cooler Master HAF X with triple and dual rad setup
Liquid cooling is overrated these days. Air has caught up and can keep even the most expensive systems cool if they don't run a serious OC. The only time liquid is good to have, is when you're gaming or folding for really long sessions, or... you just stopped gaming. Liquid can cool your system down faster at idle, than air can.
The picture with two huge fans tells it all.
Funny that most of the money was spent on the SSD's, but yet even the most significant equipment was left out was the fans needed to cool down the PC Epic Fail.
Agreed. Why isn't the processor liquid cooled, or even the cards? And why no cooling for chipset or RAM? These things all heat up especially when overclocked. No need for those two big oscillating fans if computer was properly cooled. Nice rig regardless, way better than mine.
Oh yeah, to make matters worse, he DIDN'T overclock -_-
No disrespect but from the looks of the table, his cellphone and the room it looks like he is spending all his money primarily on gaming rig only.
11k? What the hell did he spend 11K on?!? He bought 4 580's which is $2000 and the most expensive part!! edit:: lol right? he did say 6 SSD's though. lmao 6? wtf is he doing!?
I was thinking the very same thing the most I see this thing costing is 5k to 6k give or take.
What about his monitor? How much would that cost? I am not into gaming PCs so have no idea.
oh didn't notice that! $2400-3200 for the Samsung 7 series. That's a large chunk, ok so the monitor and cards were about $5000
$11K and your cable management looks like shit. for $11K you could of had tiny invisible elves carry the electricity back n fourth and used no wires. sorry i had to be prick about something. subtract two 580's and use that money saved to water cool the other two. Overclock the hell out of them plus your CPU cause 4 way SLi in most games is useless. I know he has a bunch of SSD BUT buy two 500GB PCI-E SSD with built in RAID O,1 controller and your all set plus NOTHING is faster than PCI-E SSD. $11K worth of PC with two $5 wal-mart fans blowing on it to keep it cool is not great. Cooler Master Haf X would be much nicer and it keeps things cool plus holds all 6 SSD you have. $11K and your not running twin Xeon's? Ah come on. PLEASE take it all back and let me help you out. I can build you something just as good and you will be left with $3k for a nice trip to Las Vegas. Newegg has a 120hz 3D 32" 1080p 2ms response time TV on sale for $450-$650. they do this like every other weekend. but a samsung 7 series is nice but not $2500 nice.
ATiElite I almost agreed up until the point you said PCIe ssd was the fastest you could get. WRONG Check out out OCZ's new HSDL ssd's
By the looks of it he doesn't have much knowledge with knowing computers moreso then have the mentality "let's get the best of the best and throw it together for fun". It is definitely overkill and as stated above, that case can not be enclosed without liquid cooling as those quad sli cards are on top of one another it will overheat fast. I plan on building a new rig to max out BF3 on PC but I am only spending just under 2k...but with that I can get SLi, 6-core intel, 8gig ddr3 ram, 1200w power supply, full case, and usb 3.0 compatible mobo. So my comp will run BF3 the same as his yet mine will be 9k less which will go towards bills and my car payment...haha.
lol so true, I hope he got the receipt because he has been ripped off big time.
I spent $1200 and have 2500k at 4.5ghz, SLI 560ti, 950 watt corsair PSU, 8Gb vengeance ram, USB 3.0 mobo, SSD, dvd, blu ray and HDD lol but 11k? geesh.
My guess is he went with nothing but SSDs from the looks of it and if you get large capacity SSDs well look for yourself. They ain't cheap. http://www.newegg.com/Produ... And that's just 500gig. Regular 1TB HDD costs $90...for comparison. So if he got just two of those well he is at $2800 already minus everything else. Again OVERKILL.
Intel Core i5 2500k @ 4.5ghz G-Skill 8GB 1600 DDR3 ram Asus p67 Revolution MObo with EFI 2x16 PCi-e slots 2 Gigabyte 560 GTX @ 1000mhz 2 320 WD HDD Sony DVD/CD Sony Blu-ray burner Corasir 120GB SSD corsair 800 watt PSu Cooler master V6 heatsink Thermaltake Level 10GT case 3 x HP 23" 1080p monitors $2500 and i will be able to play BF3 just as good as him, actually better casue i will have peripheral vision lol
lmao what a waste
11,000 for a rig with no games that even come close to utilizing it. Its a 3dmark rig I suppose.
And whats so funny is that people that put that much emphasis on hardware don't even really play games.
Wow, that's ugly. I see way way too many problems with this rig. It's more fail than anything.
AMAZING, This PC Is Very Powerful like Play Station 3
Lol, that was a good one!
@Josephyal Was That Trolling Or Sarcasm ?
Those 'cooling fans' are ridiculous.
I could have built one cheaper and better.............serious!
looks at fans...only two why and not liquid cooled
Nice build, now go fold. That's about the only thing you can do to actually tax that system. Hell games of today can run maxed on half of that CPU/RAM and half of one of your 4 gpus. Oh yeah, keep a close eye on your electric bill.. :)
