Description

This build had a 980 ti Classy originally, I just upgraded my GPU but the rest was completed around April 2016. I was about to order the parts for a custom water loop but apparently finding a water block for the Classy is impossible since EKWB no longer have them available. Instead, I decided to join the big leagues with a brand new Titan Xp and put the loop on hold for a bit.

I forgot to mention that this is my very first build! Comments and tips are welcome :P

Awesome build with awesome parts. +1

Personally, I would of gone for an aftermarket 1080 Ti (perhaps Asus 1080 Ti OC?) rather then spen $1,200 on the Xp. That way you could have gone for the 165Hz monitor from Acer or Asus or... The Dell is also a good monitor. Have it on my wife's setup with a single 1080. With that beefy PSU i can only assume you are looking for an SLI in the future? It would also be pretty awesome if Nvidia made the LED on the card RGB or at least gave a choice of 3 colours instead of that ghastly green.. Also the G502 is one of the most comfortable mouse I have ever used. Only reason I went for the G900 was for the wireless convenience... Enjoy you high refresh rates.

At the time I wanted to be "SLI ready" and I got a really good deal on the PSU so I went for it. Now I realize it is an incredible overkill for my system but at least I got a quality PSU. I've read a lot about SLI issues with compatibility and micro stutter so for the time being i'll stick to a single card (the reason I got a titan and not a 1080ti).

you should custom mod the geforce logo to make it light up red instead of green :)

At the time all I could think of was "Go big or go home". I didn't wanted to spend a ton on future upgrades so I decided to wait until I had a substantial budget and build something worthwhile and "future-proof" instead of upgrading components every now and then. Thing is, my inner engineer really loved building this. I cant wait for my wallet to stop bleeding so I can shove a custom loop in there! Like Terry says: "I can't stop!"

Why the Titan xp? YOu could've bought a 1080Ti and saved a lot of money without losing any performance.

Actually, I was waiting for a Classified 1080ti model. Since the PC world changes so quickly and there probably wont be a classified until august or so, I decided to just get the titan with the money I saved for the water loop. I figured if I was going to upgrade, might as well upgrade as soon as posible and the titan allowed me to have a great performance without even having to water cool it. If I was to get a Classy in august or afterwards (before they ran out of stock) and nvidia decides to reveal a new model next year, I will feel like I should have waited for the newer version like I did with the 1080. And the cycle will keep repeating itself. So the faster I upgrade, the longer it will be before you have a "last year" model. "$20 now are worth more than $20 a year from now". I just hope it can keep on par with future models because i don't plan on upgrading anytime soon.
