I live near Cape Canaveral, a retired NASA engineer.

I have some experience years back building Amiga and Intel boxes, but am out of date on much of current tech. I wanted to build a fast video editing and VR machine, but found I could get a maxed-out Aurora R7 (8700K and 1080 Ti) for near the same cost, with recent discounts. It has some settings capability, but I want to push the machine harder.

This site seems ideal, and I'll be doing a lot of reading. Glad to join you guys.

Thanks. I hope I did the right thing with the 1080 Ti; I didn't realize that G-sync monitors cost a fat premium over free sync. Waiting next few days for a cheapie ET322QK 4K monitor to use for now (non-gaming), And a PCIe NVMe 512GB drive and more ram; these seemed cheaper to get separately.

The SSD is a Samsung M961 512GB. I tested it with PassMark; gave it a 20,000 rating. Much faster than M.2 SATA ssd on other box.

I like the monitor. Runs 4K DirectX12 test in PassMark smoothly at 65 fps. But that's all she got. GPU hits 62 deg C.

Having trouble buying more 2933 speed ram from Dell/Alienware - no stock.
