TweakTown this week points to what desktop manufacturer GamingPC calls the "Destroyer". It's the company's latest PC gaming-focused desktop rig sporting a custom water cooling system, an Intel Core i7 3770k quad-core CPU overclocked to 4.5 GHz, 32 GB of G.Skill RAM and Windows 8 Pro. The price? A wallet-destroying $3580.72 USD – and that's before any customizations are made.
"We built this machine to be the best bang for the buck when it came to extreme gaming," GamingPC told TweakTown on Mondat. "This is our favorite machine. This is how we want our own at-home machines to be."
According to the list of baseline specs, the Destroyer gaming rig sports an Asus Maximus V Extreme motherboard, an OCZ Vertex 4 256 GB SSD, a secondary 2 TB Western Digital Black HDD, and a dual-GPU Nvidia GeForce GTX 690 4 GB graphics card. There's also a 14x Blu-ray writer, 7.1 surround sound and loads more.
Housing all this high-end hardware is a Coolmaster HAF X chassis powered by an Antec Truepower Quattro 1200W power supply. To keep everything cool, the company has thrown in its own custom water cooling system backed by a 1-year warranty.
For customers who have a bit more pocket change to spend, this gaming rig's final price can shoot up past the $5600 mark by adding additional components like the Intel 520 Series 480 GB SSD, a Sound Blaster Recon3D FATAL1TY professional sound card and more. Windows 7 Pro 64-bit English is the default OS, but customers can upgrade to Windows 8 Pro 64-bit without any additional charge.
"This system was designed to surpass the expectations of even the most hardcore gamer," the company said. "In the Destroyer, you’ll find the absolute best components currently available on the market. Absolutely no compromises have been made for this system. Here’s the process that’s involved in creating this machine."

>32GB of RAM
The killer part is the 2x GTX 690. If replace with something else, or even single display card, it is much cheaper. Mine has similar spec, CPU, RAM, HDD, except I got a GTX 670 OC. I do not even exceed $2000Reply
why not? seems alrightReply
although RAM could have been lower, 12 GB is enough
RAM is dirt cheap, 32G only worth $130Reply

8GB should be more than enough for most people. Some people tend to go with 16GB or more even though they don't do any heavy rendering or CAD work, only gaming. Thus, they only use up a fraction of it. I've only used about 6.5GB out of 8GB so far.
Mirroring the $3500 Gaming Rig here.Reply
Estimating $300 spent on the CPU water-cooling system, end total is $3120.
Just incase anyone was curious.
**Note though, there is more than a few spots where they spend unnecessary money on parts, such as the $370 Mobo, $160 in RAM, $210 SSD, and $210 1200w Power Supply. (Arguably the CPU should be an 3570k too but oh well.)

I don't see 2x GTX 690. I see:
and a dual-GPU Nvidia GeForce GTX 690 4 GB graphics card.
Meaning that the GTX has 2 GPUs not that you get 2 GTX's
Would it be possible for TH to do a comparison with build like this ^, vs say a $1200-1500, $2000-2500 rig?Reply
Nvidia 690, is unquestionably *one* of, if not, the best cards out there, but with the price in the 1k range.... Isn't x2 a little over kill, anyways?

Whoops sorry, I read that wrong as well.
The PC built for the gamer who has too much money and no sense.Reply
