True. I'm disabled now so it is harder to keep up. I read and build now and then..But when I was working, I had everything there. But there are so many instructions to learn how to .build on line..YouTube is your best friend.

Yeah, ill see once It gets to 19.99. If it's a good game I could see playing a 2nd or third time. I've played uncharted a dozen times for each game..

Putting them together is the easy part. Building a balanced, stable, and reliable build is what separates the professional. Mathematical builds are very difficult and require knowledge and research on the software. Most off them I see are done wrong or people just don't have the bread. A lot of bad gaming boxes are being built by local places as well, mostly inferior hardware and poorly balanced.

Here is a link that is very informative.

Its a tad dated but still the concepts in the presentation can be useful with current hardware

Nice. I'm bookmarking that. Thanks. I used to have an educational ANSYS licence. Did some two-way solid-fluid interaction stuff. Really kick-ass that someone with my limited FEM/CFD background was able to get it to work when it was a research topic just a couple years prior. Commercially, that software would be $80k, or at least it was a few years ago. I think there's freeware out there getting close. It can be done, but I don't know if it can be done by me yet. Once the freeware is accessible, I imaging ANSYS will have to come down a bit.

EVGA NVidia cards, and Asus or Sapphire AMD cards. Liquid cooling varies depending on enthusiast goals.

I build workstations as well for mathematicians, artists, and engineers. Those get very pricey. I have a small following and only customers that want and expect precision.
Is EVGA better now than they used to be? I swore I'd never buy them again after i had multiple motherboards and gfx cards either be DOA, never work right, or never work right and then burn out other components when they died. my current rig has an asus mobo with an FX-8320, but with a gigabyte gfx card (GTX 560), gskill ram, a samsung SSD, and an antec psu.

High quality, excellent return policy if registered. I have had very few returns.

95% of games can be played with a mid card..

High end cards are good for graphic design and things like that..for games it's overkill.
