Congrats on a beast of a system. Awesome

Did you have a specific reason for that much RAM? Just curious - don't see it that often. Big%20Smile

Congratulations, i don't know what stage you are in but may i recommend dropping the ram to 32gb which 4 times more than what you need for gaming and instead go 1000gb 960 pro.

Ask for a drain valve to make it easier to flush and be ready to work on that lc system.

Nice system but I wish you had talked to us first, either congratulations

This will be my last pc purchase. So I wanted to get the system of my dreams. I hopefully will not need to upgrade for a very very long time. Thanks

All the other systems I have purchase over the years I would always order low ram thinking that I would have enough. I was wrong and would have to upgrade. So, since this will be my last desktop purchase I just wanted to max it out.

He also ordered a month before you - not to mention the fact that each build tends to have a different timeline. You can always contact DS if you are curious as to what's going on with ole' Stage 1. Strong
