    Wow.. now that's a build that I have not seen in many many years!

    Great going!

    Single monitor or dual?

    That Samsung Pro SSD is apparently one of the best in the market currently, especially with a 10yr warranty.

    Nice! What motherboard?

    Pleas, please, I beg you, do not go for the k&0/K90. Get a Corsair QuickFire Rapid, Novatouch or some Ducky board.

    @ JD666 it is a single monitor setup but may be that monitor might use dual link DVI because of the resolution.

    Yes the pro 850 is overall the best SSD on the market today, the idea was to do a little bit of research and get some of the best components possible hence you see that 900D tower, 1200i power supply and the Asus RT-AC router.

    @MOZ

    The motherboard is in the pictures i posted, it is the asus maximus vii hero, i guess you are referring to CM QuickFire Rapid? i don't really have any specific preference i liked the corsair mechanical keyboards for the looks and build but k70 is hard to get in India these days, if nothing works out i will get the TVS gold mechanical.


    and btw i wouldn't dare to rival the almighty banhammer's build.:whew:


    This build is not for extreme gaming or anything and i am no enthusiast or gamer in anyway, i am going to use it for general web browsing,music and casual gaming, the thing is i don't turn off my pc that often and the my existing pc which has been serving me well for the past 7 years has been turned off once every 6 or 8 months hence my new build consists of these components which i believe would be reliable.

    Also there are another list of stuff i bought this past couple of weeks may be i will post them in the upgRAIDitis thread.

    here is the part of 2 of things to come.

    Nexus 9 16 gb wifi ---- Already ordered.

    Ipad air 2 gold 16 gb wifi ----- Already ordered.

    Nikon 50mm afs lens --- Recieved.

    Nikon 35 mm DX lens --- Recieved.

    windows 8.1 or windows 7 --- yet to order.

    Samsung 64 inch F8500 plasma --- yet to order.

    Pass labs pre amplifier ---- Recieved

    Oris Divers small second second with date blue dial --- Already ordered.

    if i continue on this buying mood i might as well buy the triumph speed triple.

    I don't know why the mobo images didn't open up earlier. Nice board!

    Regarding the keyboard, yes, I'm referring to the CoolerMaster QuickFire Rapid. The K70/90 just look good, but they won't last you and serve you well. The CM QFR is a very solid board, almost on part with Filco/Ducky. If you don't mind importing, get one of these companies' board.

    You are welcome, Studio monitors are absolute value for money and most PC users fail to realize and buy some non sense PC speaker for 200$ when they could have spent a little bit more and buy speakers sounding 100 times better.

    The water cooling is here.

    Great build. But i would suggest stay away from the K90.

    Me and Aragorn both had it, and we had clusters of LED fail after a month or so. Same happened with another friend of mine.

    That Router on the other hand is a freaking BEAST. Flash over Merlini's or Tomato and it gets even better. I installed 2 x 12 dbi antenna's on it to get even better range. But the router does get hot at max transmission power so make sure you keep it in a super cool place.

    Also why not 16Gigs of memory?

    Yes 16 GB memory it is, i most probably will buy the das keyboard.

    Yes it is much better than 100i, NZXT Kraken X60 and H110,H105 are better than 100i, H320 is better than all of this from what i have read and understood.

    Das is a good option, be advised their older models have a a very glossy finish. For most, it's a make or break.

    This looks gorgeous, but we need more comparative scaling and better picture.
