This is my proposed rig for the "Win Your Ultimate Rig" contest.

As the name implies, it features a silver and gold color scheme based around the ASRock Z77 Extreme9 board. I have built a rig before (helping a friend, not my own) with the ASRock Z68 Extreme7 board and I know firsthand how awesome the design on that line of motherboards is, not to mention it overclocked a 2600K very nicely to 4.9 GHz.

The yellow/gold accents on the ZOTAC GTX 680s would continue the color scheme, but more importantly allow for insane triple monitor setups. Presently, I have a single ASUS VW266H 25.5-Inch monitor. With the hardware to justify it, I would get 2 more in a heartbeat.

This is my *Ultimate Rig* - it clearly goes over $2500, but I already own about $500 worth of the parts on the list and a $2500 head start is one helluva reason to go all out for a dream build!
