Ultimate DIY Desk PC - THE FINALE

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWhyXjAXOrA

I was certain we had a PC exclusive thread. I guess not. Anyway, this is f*cking SICK! I WANT SOMETHING LIKE THIS NOW!!! SICK SICK SICK! One thing I would definitely change would be to replace the glass with plexiglass for obvious reasons. Everything else....I'd keep exactly as is.

If I had the space and the dosh to spare, this is what I'd like to make.  Not a Hackintosh, but a Frankenmac, a proper one but with just better components.

Seems much easier to do than a whole Hackintosh with a lot less guesswork, but I still wonder if/when Mac's new desktop comes out and what those specs will be.  We're SO overdue, and they're ignoring that demo at their peril.

The Most Interesting Gaming PC - iBuyPower Snowblind


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1N-8Vd-3DE&t=56s

Pretty good review and yes, this is still on my Buy List. I talked to a rep yesterday as they have a Pre-Black Friday sale going on and he told me to wait for the actual Black Friday Sale as it will be an even better deal. So, check out the review above and drool at the PC.

I'm just wanting to get a steal of a deal. If I can get this in the $1,500 range and still get the free swag that I can turn around and sell on eBay.....now THAT would be a big score.

you're looking at videos of that computer right now aren't you???

hahaha

I watched the full video above today...it's really killer and I think for streaming would really enhance your channel and viewers would be DROOLING!

no pressure though

Xidax (https://www.xidax.com/desktops/x-6/?saveconfig=209072)

Stumbled across this site. The cases look cool. Not as cool as the Snowblind. But I'm gonna spend some time configuring my build and see what kind of price tag it brings and how it compares to the other sites.

God Lord! So, doing my configure of the mid-tier option and even before I got half way through the config, the sticker price is already at $2,500....and that without any Hard Drives. WTF!

Still working on different configs. One thing I have to point out, XIDAC offers Lifetime Warranty on your PC. No one offers that anywhere else that I know of. iBuypower, Cyberpower, etc....standard is 2 years. I talked to one of their Customer Reps and he said this Lifetime Warranty covers everything. The only cost comes in shipping. This Warranty is a BIG PLUS in my book.

oh yeah for sure.

that is an amazing thing and something I can nearly guarantee (see what I did there) will come in handy...if not 2-5 years down the road...later

The case that I went with is no longer available. Support says it won't be back in stock until next week. No sweat, gives me more time to do more research. One thing I made effort to learn is that the company is based in Utah...and that means no tax charge on the PC. I got them to confirm this. Nice...that will save about 250 bucks on that alone.
