But your rig is not for multiple monitor gaming

Yeah, you just bought the most expensive things you could. Either you don't know much about computers (in which case you should be asking us), or you just want to brag that you have the "best."

Throwing more money at a computer doesn't always make it better - breadwhistle's rig will do the same as yours in 99% of all cases. The ones where it won't will be, say, folding protein simulations, which you probably don't care about.

Spending $5000 is just silly, when you can max out any game with well less than half that. Do your research, and save yourself some money. Perhaps build TWO ultimate computers, for friends to use when they come over, if you really, REALLY want to waste five grand.

His is for multiple monitor gaming, yes, and will do very well at it?

Yours? Isn't. It's "for" spending way too much money so you think you can brag. That's its one advantage.

$5000 for 3 TV screen, i wont purchase a $5000 just for using only 1 monitor, if i use 1 monitor, i will get a $1000 pc not $5000 because it uses less power, and i am not an enthusiast gamer, i am just a casual gamer

You could have phase change cooling FFS! As others said you know very little about computers, you threw money at it and called it good. -__- You are what is wrong with the new generation of PC gamers.
Edit: That was immature of me, I'm sorry but sometimes things like this anger me. Again, I'm really sorry. :(

^It's all of our first reactions.
Even if you're an enthusiast gamer, though... I mean, TWO 690s in quad SLI is enough to game on NINE monitors.

EDIT: Actually, that sounds really, really awesome. Someone please stop me from spending more money I don't have?

You don't need all that.Here this is me being wasteful lol.Straight monster and will violently murder any game. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/p9On option #2 http://pcpartpicker.com/p/pa14


That's wasteful? Jeeze, I expected at LEAST an 80+ platinum power supply. ;) 
(Also, boo and hiss to the POS keyboard. Least well built mechanical board out there.)

:lol:  i don't like the keyboard seems like you and me are the only ones though :lol:  I personally prefer mechanical keyboards, but not everyone does.

For me, the Ducky Shining takes the cake - Backlit in red/green/blue/white, comes in red/brown/black/blue switches.

From there I would look at Deck Legend boards, Filcos, and maybe on a budget the BW.If you don't like Mech boards, the Logitech G19 is pretty neat

Well, I wish I would've gotten a mechanical keyboard when I bough mine. I'm sitting here with a G510 right now. This is my new build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/p8KE Gonna be working for a while to get this one.

Ha, I read that and thought you were saying you were buying a GTX 670 FTW with the backplate for $19. :p 

I disagree with you there, bigcyco - backlights aren't my thing. I have a Leopold that's completely blank (with flat windows keys and white esc, wsad, and arrows.)

Personally I love it, because the white is just enough to orient me, and it's hilarious when someone sits at my computer and goes WTF. Backlights would be distracting, I think. (Even the little led on my mouse distracts me sometimes.)

Lol!It comes down to personal preference i would not say there is a right or wrong choice with keyboards.

Not when it comes to mechanicals, no. Membrane keyboards, on the other hand... ;) 

(Especially the so called "gaming" keyboards)

Ooh, that's getting bookmarked. Nice find!

Still like my Leopold /w browns better, though. Might have to look at those ergonomic mechanicals for my arthritis stricken mother, though. She uses a normal ergonomic one now, but the mechanical would be even easier for her.

Coolermaster PSU on an ultimate rig?
Also only a H100, get some proper watercooling on that thing.
Also a Silverstone Temjin TJ11B-W is a must on uber rigs.

Hehe, is a whole new set of skills making ultimate rigs. At this high end getting the most powerful components doesn't even matter, much rather the character of the build and how it reflects the builder/owner.

A Switch 810 and a closed loop cooler tells me that you have ton of cash and no skill or innovation. Also that you ran out of money/put it in the wrong places, as a $150 case and $100 cooler does not belong with a $5000 rig.

I don't do custom water cooling cause it's a mess, I am only 13 years old, so i can get confused easily with the mess, it i do it wrong it have it start over, so thats why i've gone with the Cosair H100 Liquid CPU Cooler

Don't underestimate yourself because of your age, you'v just built a computer that will be more powerful than anything most people will touch for another 3yrs.
The trick is to not do it wrong in the first place and you achieve that through endless research.
