How much did you guys spend on your cases? They look expensive...

$194

@ NintendoPie: I'm much more of a Universal fan than people understand. Ice Blue N64, Platinum Gamecube, white (and black) SNES consoles (one from Japan), 2 DS devices (though I don't really use them) and the list could go on and on. ;)

That's...actually not as much as I was expecting. I thought you'd say something like $300. It's a damn sexy tower.

Yeah, the tower was one of the cheapest components. The same cannot be said for the CPU, GPU, SSD, nor PSU.



                                                                                                                                            

So I just gotta ask, why 32GB RAM. Like...there's nothing you can possibly be doing with that much RAM, seems like a waist of money in my opinion. Hell, the RAM Speed isn't even future proof at that level, just think of when the average GAMING PC needs 32GB of RAM, the type of RAM standard for PC's will be far faster than the RAM we use today. 32GB's of RAM seems excessive.

Eh, RAM is fairly cheap. For $149, 32GB of RAM is not only a steal, but coverage for years to come.

I hardly play games on my 3 monitor set up and either play in the bedroom an a HTPC or using 3D vision. So I'll probably sell my current "gaming rig" pretty soon... Not sure if I'll ever build another one again. time and age is catching up with me by the looks of things.
