Dream pc?

i7 6700K for sure (until we see what AMD releases with the new FX and ZEN)

motherboard, MSI Z170A GAMING M9 ACK

Water 3.0 Riing RGB 360 (I like the fans! lol)

32GB (4x8gb) Avexir Raiden Red

HyperX Savage 960GB

WD Black 2TB

XFX R9 Fury

MSI 980 Ti (yes both)

XFX 1250w pro PSU

That build... without case is roughly $3,000 lol

as far as the OP and the giveaway... those pcs arent remotely close ;)

It sounded similar xD

If only the water block were smarter than the water is relentless. It's always wearing away at those seals. The means maintenance, and I loathe maintenance. I prefer to set it and forget it.

I think I'd like an external GPU for my ideal rig. It'd be easy to disconnect (and run on iGPU) when not needed for cooler, quieter general computing. It'd be easy to share with a laptop or other build whenever the need struck.

eGPUs are becoming a thing. AMD is cooperating with Razer on drivers and making those available for anyone to build with and I think I saw something more recently on an nVidia eGPU option. I'm eager to see more.

You want a laptop with an external GPU then? :P

I want a GPU that's easily moved from computer to computer, desktops and laptops alike. They're pricey, why buy more than one?

my ideal computer is as much power as i can get for the price i can get. As much bad rap as the FX series processors have they arent that bad. One of my friends whom i helped select parts and build his computer runs with the fx8350 and he can setup live streams of his games so if you know what you are doing any PC can feel like a dream machine.

So an external GPU?

CASE: Something portable like a small form factor micro/mini ITX case

Already sort of building something using a Cooler Master Elite 110 Mini-ITX case

CPU: Intel-based probably i7-6700k or wait for next line of cpus.

MOBO: ASRock or ASUS, haven't had much luck with MSI or Gigabyte although I heard they have been making higher quality boards than before.

RAM: 8-32GB RAM DDR3 2133 with lowest timings or DDR4 since it is newer technology.

Storage: Intel 750 SSD in Raid 0 or 5. (case only supports up to 4 SSDS :/)

GRAPHICS: ASUS GeForce GTX 970 (Best mini version card that will fit this case)

(Might just have to go with a longer case to support higher end video cards.

Other than that obviously a GTX 1080 in SLI

Cooling (liquid of course!)

It would be nice to see more video card manufacturers create mini versions of higher end video cards.

Yeah, I've compared a lot of bench tests and clocks between the Titan X and the 1080s since the NDA lifted, and suprisingly for their price point the 1080s do outperform the Titan X in most games and uses -- but there are some applications (specifically targeting 4k) where the Titan wins...

BUT, I suppose at the end of the day, the main benefit of the 1080 is it's overclock potential, and none of the benches I've looked at were OC'd... More over, even in the applications where the Titan did win, it didn't win by very much - so I guess the money I'd be saving by getting a couple 1080s (like, literally $2,200 gets shaved off the total build quote) would more than make up for any performance loss I'd have overall given that the 1080s don't support 3-way SLI.

So, yeah - you win, and I've adjusted my ideal rig.

I'm almost 100% sure most liquid cooling systems today use some form on non-conductive liquid such as fluorinert to prevent such mishaps. I once used a fishtank with said fluorinert to fully submerge an old AMD slot cpu I had overclocked for fun and nothing was ruined in the process.

Usually liquid cooling solutions use non-conductive liquids. It your choice sometimes, BUT your liquid will pick up dust and particles and they will make the liquid conductive by association. As I've seen, if you are gonna have a PC for a LONG time, don't do liquid cooling, as it will fail unless you plan to replace the loop a couple times long term :P
