You're right it does look fancy :P

The 650 Ti just seems a bit unfitting though haha +1

I do not need GFX processing power so this is more than enough for me. :) I don't play games so instead I invested on ram and SSD :)

For a DAW, I'm surprised to see there isn't a sound card.

Sound cards don't work. He will have a separate DAC or sound board. Watch this for more info:

Really awesome build. It's awesome to see someone who doesn't use a Mac for their DAW. :/ +1

I like it! Looks good and I hope you're enjoying it.

I have a question though.

How in the world did you get the windowed version of the 500R? I can never find it on newegg or amazon.. Is it custom?

Thanks, I did custom work on it. I cut the boarder lips which holds the mesh with hand engraver tool with metal cutter disc. I grabbed the plexy glass from a local glass shop. You can find it in any home supply stores. Then I used 3M double sided tape to hold the glass. The edging rubber is the trick. I found it in auto market but you can find it on ebay. It will take maximum 1hr of work to finish the job. The total cost will be around 20-30$.

Sounds confusing. I'm 15 so I don't know much about appliances and how to do those things, but thanks for telling me nonetheless. Always good to learn something new :)

There are many ways you can learn how to do it on the net. Look for videos about mods. If you want to do it and if you can get the necessary stuff I would be glad to help.

The cutting is a little hard for beginners. So I recommend to seek for a professional or a metal workshop. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7twrE1JxD4E on this video (00:48sec) you can see the uncut sides. and the rest is pretty DIY simple. Here are the stuff you need

1- 25x33cm acrylic glass 4mm or 5mm thick

2- 3M VHB Heavy Duty Mounting Tape

3- U Channel EPDM Rubber Edge Trim http://www.ebay.com/itm/281055756245?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

That's real nice of you and thanks for the info but I'm not necessarily going for this case, I was just wondering how you got a windowed model. If I do need help with modding or things along the line of that in the future, I'll be sure to talk to you though.

No need for a fancy-expensive gfx card for Audio Work Station. I don't play games or do graphics rendering so this is good enough for me.

Good choice of specs, but the GPU choice just leaves me saying, "WTF". You could of at least gone with a 760 for an extra 50-70 dollars, considering the fact that you spent a good sum on the hardware. What are you using the build for?

  • 77 months ago

Judging from the name, I'd say it's being used as a Digital Audio Workstation.

Didn't catch that, thank you. :)

Sound processing doesn't require extreme GPU's :)

But don't you think it would be better to squeeze it all of a 2k computer? I mean something where you can work and play
