Stages 1-3 all happened on November 22 in successive email lol

Stage 1 - November 22, 2016

Stage 2 - November 22, 2016

Stage 3(Phase 1 Phase 1 integration) - November 22, 2016

(Note: This is only an estimation. If problems are encountered during testing, we may have to hold your order for a few more days to ensure you receive a rock-solid stable problem free system.

Here are the current parts i have bought to accompany my system. In the meantime i have had a opportunity to get all my other gear ordered in. I have go the following components. 
Tell me what you think; Good, Bad, Ugly.

Speakers : Z906 Logitech THX Surround sound

Monitors: I got 2 XB321HK 32" 4K monitors - A little overkill but i got a good deal on boxing week sales.

Thanks for all the info, Snaike might be able to move over some of your older posts to this thread if you'd like. Not sure though, I don't like putting work on other people's desks. Hahaha
