I've started building computers for people, selling them at cost (so building them is free, i make no profit).
CPU and motherboard choice were pretty straight forward: locked CPU = locked motherboard.
The 16GB ram is necessary since this is for a client who does web development and consulting. He uses his ASUS gaming laptop to do work, and with 10GB of ram, he tends to fill it up quite fast. 16Gb is sufficient for heavy (i mean HEAVY) multitasking
3tb of storage was also needed (volume over speed): He fills up 2tb in a snap... figured 3tb should be enough.
the 760 is mainly for BF3. along with triple monitor setup, the 760 was imo the best choice.
XFX power supply. what can i say? works flawlessly and is VERY efficient
OS was free.
The case is an odd case. i have never heard of the brand. The client just handed me this case and said "use this case :)"
this case was rather large as the cutouts for cable management were a little far. the power supply CPU cable was a little short. i had to pull and pull and stretch it til it reached.
The cable management in this build is by far the best i have ever done. i spent extra time paying attention to neatness and unnecessary cable exposure. hope you guys like it :) constructive criticism encouraged!
p.s, can you figure out what my naming scheme is? (prize)
