After planning this build out carefully and slowly purchasing components as sales occurred (or didn't), a year came and went, during which prices for video cards and memory were horrific at times. Only after I had already purchased half of my necessary components did I realize that 2017 was possibly one of the worst years to build the PC I had always wanted: one that would blend form and function and could hopefully be future-proof for a bit. This was both an artistic endeavor, and a long overdue upgrade. My previous PC was both hideous and antiquated; a noisy rig running an AMD Phenom II X4 965, with an old Zalman big-air cooler that had grown to be deafening at times. I sought out to build something that would finally be the PC I wanted, as opposed to a PC I compromised for. For the most part it came to full fruition with one minor exception: the video card. I just couldn't bring myself to shell-out $1200 for a 1080 at the time. Prices have started to drop thankfully, and eventually I'll get a fancier card. Still, a 1060 is not too shabby.
So far, it has run silently and beautifully. The name is derived from a movie it reminded my wife of when she saw it all lit up for the first time.
