So I built a new beast

And here are the specs - (plus a 144hz gsync Predator monitor)

It's been seven years since my last build so yah I used that as a cheat sheet - basically shooting for consistent Ultra High 2K gaming.

It has worked out well - a little too well in fact. I have been collecting games on deals and bundles for years and now I can play all 2000 of them in highest settings - the paradox of choice is real!

(and biting me in the ass)

So now I am a victim of my own hubris - where is that UBI so I can spend a few years on my backlog?? I guess I better be careful what I wish for, eh?

Still when it comes down to it I'd trade it all - for just a little bit more.

wow, just saw this, and again wow!

I'd say your build gets the coveted two woots from me bro.

Woot! Woot!

Thanks man - I must admit - I am really loving it!

My wife has recently had a lucrative contracting gig of unknown duration - and she told me I better take the plunge while we are still makin' the bills.

I ordered all the parts around black Friday and actually saved about $800 timing it in that way.

Smart thinking on that man. But yeah, what a beast of a machine.
