Why Titans you ask? If you recall, we used triple Titans for a build video a few years ago. We're reusing two of those Titans to give Phil good CUDA performance for the various applications he uses. And of course, those don't hurt when doing a bit of gaming too. We used a 1200W PSU in case we want to throw in a third Titan.

EDIT: Thanks for your patience everyone. We've re-uploaded the stream in 4K - turns out it takes YouTube quite a while to process a 32GB 2h15m recording...

Fractal Design Define S Build

philip Oct. 6, 2015

New office means new computers for everyone. Barry helps out tremendously behind the scenes with part entry and lots of other site internals that help keep things running smoothly. He's also an avid gamer - and despite Ryan's digs, he does play more than just minecraft. We do take gaming seriously in the office - and unlike many places it's not a fireable offense. So we wanted to make sure his system had enough horsepower so he could play games in between getting work done... but without breaking the budget.

The build guide for this part list can be found here.

$650 FX-6300 / GTX 960 Build

philip Sept. 26, 2015

We worked with Amazon to put together a budget gaming build centered around the FX-6300. Unfortunately due to issues outside our control we were delayed in getting hold of some of the parts, so this build video came a bit later than we had hoped.

The full part list for this build can be found here.
