This seems a bit mad:

Twin 1080's, a liquid cooling dock to allow them to run overclocked, 4k screen, 64GB ram and a 1TB SSD.

I like your thinking Jim, that monitor looks amazing - I can't believe they've managed to pack in a standard desktop graphics card but a top end one as well. It's not even a silly price at $3000 bearing in mind the monitor is around £800 and a GTX 1080 is 700-800 quid although an SSD would be good.

That's quite unimaginative, I was more thinking a pair of Samsung 4TB SSD's would do the trick.

I would actually seriously consider one of those screen all in ones, especially with no compromise specs like that.

I normally despise all in one PC's because you pay a lot of money for inferior hardware that can't be upgraded or repaired but that machine is something else particularly since not only does it have an upgradeable graphics card but it can take a 1080. I have the 1070 sitting tight at the bottom of my case against the hard drive cage and the power supply yet I can rarely even hear it most of the time even during intensive gaming. Normally 2.5in Hard drives would be a serious limitation for a performance machine but high capacity SSD's are now starting to become a reality offering superb performance in a very compact size.

Yeah, my thoughts exactly John.

I have liked the general idea, but never the compromise on hardware and access. This is a beaut though!

I'm going to keep an eye on it and similar machines.

These guys don't seem to believe in DTR's:



I'm quite surprised how tolerant the lecturer is particularly given it's a big university, any crap like this when I was at uni and they'd have been booted straight out the building.
