View Full Version : Dream Setup
Show us what your dream PC setup would be regardless of cost include the full build every part you would need (no slacking if you would need a silicone gaskit put it in :p ). Now usually I would just put mine in here but still a couple of item's I'm now sure about (can you tell I've got too much free time at the moment).
Sample List of items
Non Standard Fans
Any other PCI-e Card
Additional Devices (ext HDD etc)

Additional Modifications - Long list and i would change my mind at last minute but probably a load of different coloured UV cables and some UV LED's that will be fun at first then boring and will be turned off.
I think most would just say the best of everything. You have far too much time on your hands, and a lot of patience to go hunting down all the bits. When I'm less tired and can be bothered I may go hunt down those parts I want. I had the original G15, and it was a farking dust magnet and I never did get round to programming a single macro key, not one
We have just blogged about this....
Cooled Liquid Nitrogen
Quad Graphics Cards
500GB Solid State HD
Also - what would you name it?!
Liquid nitrogen cooling has one massive setback you have to keep pouring. Think with my dream PC it has to be able to run 24/7 the wrap around screen I did include in my build with the 3 projectors :p, as for HDD the 240 revo would do me or maybe the 480. As for name well I'd call it "My PC" blinkin computer let the benchmark do the talkin.
