What is your ultimate fantasy setup(s)?

Recommended Posts

If you were not limited by cash, skills and/or resources, what would your ultimate rig(s) look like and/or what would be put in it or use it for.

 

Here's one I made up in PCPartsPicker as an exaggerated 4K-ready  setup. Not on the list would be a custom LCS with an EK Fury X waterblock since Tt only has VGA blocks for 980 & 970 Strixes.

Aside from this another build I'd like to do if certain things didn't cost so much would be a Mame cabinet. While it doesn't require that powerful of a PC to run the latest fighters and the more intensive emulators, the real money would go to the rest of the hardware like the internal monitor, the buttons and joysticks, and especially the cabinet itself.

Custom built 8 foot desk, total glass top, all components in the desk.  Thin white translucent Dupont Corian sides with LED for illumination.  Z99 MB, 32 GB RAM, custom cooled with acrylic tubing and 3 Frozen Q T-Virus cylinders.  Tri-SLI with tri-monitor setup (whatever I could get that would run tri-monitors in 4K).  A sound system that would rattle the poodle next door, studio headphones that'll probably cost 4 figures.  256 GB SSD boot drive. 2, 2 TB SSD RAID drives with 2, 2 TB SSD RAID NAS backup.  I'dl figure out the smaller stuff like the KB / Mouse later.

Cooling: Tt custom LCS

I would love to see a custom liquid cooled job with that titanium case, I didn't think it could be done because of the separate compartments.  Maybe an external mounted cylinder reservoir , and some creative drilling....where to put the rads though....hmmmmmm.
