    That's one beast of a computer. But I would have personally gotten ride of that SSD and got a second 1080 instead.

    I have a 30" DELL..... I'll use my same monitor....

    Dell UltraSharp 30 Monitor with PremierColor - UP3017

    I'm starting to use several virtual machines for software testing and so forth. Those suckers hog RAM and disk space and CPU cycles...

    Thus the monster RAM and CPU.

    This is 90% business PC and 10% gaming... The video card was all gaming tho... :-D

    Asus name, price, and match for my CPU.

    I tried an ASROck MB and it was junk, I'm now trying another Asus Board the next one up. Stay tuned!

    I will stay tuned, I have build I'm assembling myself, I bought my first Asus board, I was overwhelmed with the number of new Z270 boaards, After a lot of research I ended up going with the Asus Prime Z270-A. My EVGA boards have served me well but they didn't have what I was looking for this time.

    Hehe... I wonder why people do some of the things they do. And the answer is. ... "it seemed like the thing to do at the time." Course I've never done anything like that before. That being said, you should always consult the clowns in this forum. Individually we're pretty dysfunctional.... (see Phantom). But as a collective we figure some stuff out. Mainly because of all the stupid stuff we can tell you not to do that we've already done.

    Yeah, the 99 Mb was not the way to go at this juncture but that's water under the bridge now. I'm glad you're able to carry on with your new stuff. Building computers is just boys with their toys from what I can tell. Some of us got more money than we do sense. (no reference to you of course) But it's all good. Congrats on the build. Should last you a long time. And I know it will chew through any game you run. Next step is getting a 4k monitor. Now thats a resolution we can all love.
