The PC of course! We already know this as truth, but I figured I would remind everyone again. Wars over, hermits win. See you next next-gen.

I approve of the case. Although is that dual Xeon? Seems a little overkill, for gaming at least. what you using this rig for?

Eventually, for right now it is just one, but I did get some extra parts for my second.

Maybe truth, but I love the standardized controls (That aren't kb/m because I just don't like that.) and standardized hardware (so I can play games for years without worrying about anything.) That's just me though, I understand the allure of PC, I game on PC also, I just like consoles, and mine is outdated as ****. Won't ever be upgraded. I might get a steambox though. I love steam :D

i'm making a little joke. i respect your build/s.

i just find the optical drive totally unnecessary. install windows from a bootable usb, all the rest of the software comes through ethernet.

plus the blu ray movies ... i mean, what will i do? subscribe to a service where they mail them to me? there's a big long lag phase between when i pick and when it arrives. I could drive to a video store? all in all i find online streaming's got me covered.

i just find them pretty pointless. but maybe your specific application (work) calls for such optical drives?

Yeah, you got a good point. I do need them for the work I am doing, BUT I don't see optical drives having the greatest future. But for now, there they are.

What is the point of all these "teh PC is the most powAA!!!" threads?

Everyone knows the PC is more powerful and I don't think anyone seriously thinks otherwise (at least anyone with a modicum of intelligence).

But in reality, you could give me a NASA supercomputer but unless it can play all the amazing console exclusives on it...all that power is irrelevant.

Funny thing is, the computers that NASA has aren't close in power to this one. Poor NASA, budget cuts =(.

While I am slightly jealous because that's a shit tonne of awesome hardware and I like the shiny shiny

But posting this on SW is dumb, you're doing nothing but trying to show off to a bunch of people that the majority don't care

Maybe not for playing video games, as I don't think most super computers even have GPUs (correct me if I'm wrong).

But as far as raw computational power, there are government computers probably thousands of times more powerful than that used for weather prediction, military engagement outcomes, etc.

"Tianhe-2, a supercomputer developed by China’s National University of Defense Technology, retained its position as the world’s No. 1 system with a performance of 33.86 petaflop/s (quadrillions of calculations per second) on the Linpack benchmark, according to the 42nd edition of the twice-yearly TOP500 list of the world’s most powerful supercomputers."

Yes, this may be more powerful.

I wouldn't be surprised if there are classified computers that are far more powerful than that even.
