ASUS Rampage V Black Edition
$526.00 BUY!  * Manually Updated! Price may be inaccurate *
The world's fastest consumer CPU can't be tied with a mid-range motherboard, enter the ASUS Rampage V Black Edition - one of the best motherboards on the market right now.

$1707.98 BUY!  * Manually Updated! Price may be inaccurate *
Two of these kits provides you with 64GB of G.Skill DDR4 RAM, surely that's enough?
OCZ Storage Solutions RevoDrive 350 Series 960GB PCI Express SSD
$1228.11 BUY!  * Manually Updated! Price may be inaccurate *
You can't have an insane amount of RAM without an even crazier SSD setup, right?
8x Seagate Desktop HDD 6TB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s 128MB Cache
$2335.84 BUY!  * Manually Updated! Price may be inaccurate *
The insanely fast SSD needs some storage to accompany it, so why not have 8 of these 6TB drives?

These 2560x1440 144Hz monitors from ASUS are powered by NVIDIA's G-SYNC technology, which our four GeForce GTX 980s in quad SLI will benefit from, greatly!
Corsair Obsidian 900D System Cabinet
$319.99 BUY!  * Manually Updated! Price may be inaccurate *
Corsair's 900D is a beautiful case, if it can still be called that. NASA should get Corsair to re-design the International Space Station, too.

$539.00 BUY!  * Manually Updated! Price may be inaccurate *
Corsair has quite the beast with the AX1500i power supply, with 1500W of power on offer, it will keep the system nice and juiced up.

LG BE14NU40 External Blu-ray Writer
$159.96 BUY!  * Manually Updated! Price may be inaccurate *
The reason for the external Blu-ray writer is to keep the look of the system extremely clean from the outside. Blu-ray, and other optical drives aren't used that often, so this can be put to the side when it's not used.
