What a creative build log title huh? I can't think of anything else. Anybody have any ideas? LOL

Anyway, I'm starting my new build on Monday. I'm hoping to be able to finish it by Monday early evening. I'll run some tests/demos on it and it should be up and running completely by Wednesday.

The parts for this build are....

5960X CPU

Asus Rampage V Extreme Motherboard
GSkill Ripjaws 4 32 GB DDR4 2400 (4x8GB)
2 x Gigabyte GTX 980 G1 Gaming video cards
Nvidia SLI bridge
Corsair AX1200i 1200W power supply
Samsung 850 EVO 1TB SSD
Western Digital 2TB HD
Pioneer Blu-ray Burner
Corsair Carbide Air 540 case
Swiftech H240X Watercooler
Asus 28” 4K monitor
NZXT Hue
Razer Blackwidow Chroma keyboard
Razer Taipan mouse

I'll take pictures of the progress of the build and post them here. They won't be as "artsy" as some of the pictures I've seen here.

Why am I building such a high-end computer?

I simply want to. I don't necessarily need most of those high-end parts but I always wanted to have a rig like this. I'll be gaming of course and I want to experiment with overclocking.
Other than gaming, I REALLY want to get into 3D graphics and animation with a program such as Cinema 4D. Being a student in tech school, I can get fully-functional 3 year licensed Cinema 4D for $295.00.

I can see myself running wild with 3D creation.
