Jealous....that's a fantastic looking build. Did you build it all yourself, or get someone else to do it?

Very nice, unfortunate timing with the 1080 cards coming out in a couple of weeks but that always happens.

I'll never spend that much on a PC but I like the specs. Mine cost about a 3rd of that and I'm happy with it.

Actually its not so bad.
I am very reluctant to buy anything that is first Gen.
I have already planned to buy 2 1080's when the 2nd gen is released in a year or two.

So what is so special about this toy.

What can it do that 98% of all modern computers can't do?

DeSade

Nothing
But in 3 years it will still be doing it while those "modern" computers will need upgrading

1) it can empty your wallet
2) it can lose an alarming $ value after 2 years
3) be grounds for divorce or 1 year of screaming at you regarding spending habits (choose 1 option)
4,5,6) it can make the rest of us gooey with jealousy

1 = True
2 = Also true but I will be keeping it for about 5yrs (with the exception of the graphics) so that is around 2k a year, most people spend more than that on alcohol
3 = I have full permission and I saved for it myself with overtime
4,5,6 yes :)

Ah but it can do awesome gaming! That's what a majority of the **** in HN etc can't do. Or do well.

As for 3) I actually managed to get husband to buy me a GPU one year for my birthday.
I ran 3DMark and showed him the old one.
When he did get the new GPU I showed him again, the difference was enormous.

He did recover from the idea of the cost eventually...LOL.

2) Who sells them later anyway, expecting to get their money back? I just used to upgrade mine anyway, change bits every now and then, haven't bought an entire PC since 1998.

The PC built 5 years ago for 8k is now being stripped and sold as parts

Unless you incrementally upgrade parts over the years, any pc will have that problem.

My pc is about 2 years old. Currently swapping motherboard with existing CPU.....but later I can upgrade the CPU also. Ram is fine as it already have 32gb in it (I run virtual machines), hard drives (about 7) I replace with larger ones as they reach the $200 mark.

I don't game on it, so video performance isn't an extra expense for me.

I upgrade graphics very regularly but when it comes time to upgrade the PCU I always have to replace the board as well, doing that usually leads to a ram change and at that point you might as well build a new one and sell off the old for parts.

Why? I too do CPU, motherboard and RAM in one go, but that doesn't mean you need to chuck the rest

Oh I don't mean chuck it, usually "the rest" forms the basis for the new build.
Its just this time it doesn't cause I couldn't exactly ship them my old parts to integrate into the build.
