A TL;DR For anyone not wanting to do the math...

60TB of 7200rpm storage + 800 gb of SSD
64GB of memory
4 GTX Titans for a combined power of 24GB
3 Completely unnecessary Optical Drives, because screw what everyone else says, we need more optical drives.
3 Insanely high resolution and insanely large monitors
8 Mother Fridging 120mm fans .

This is the best way to put together a build like this.
1. Go to PCPARTPICKER.COM
2. Pick the most expensive parts. ie. SLI as many cards as possible
3. Spam hard drives, SSD and fans.
4. Add the most expensive peripherals you can find.
= Profit

Yes, but in the Cosmos, that all will technically fit and be fully supported out of the box lol So you can either buy a Lexus, or a computer; your choice ;)
