Solved The most powerful gaming computer that money can buy!!

Specs: Windows 7
Hello all, I am t0rch. I am a very hardcore gamer and have been saving money to buy an entirely new gaming rig. Right now I have saved about $20,000. I am not much of a pro in computers (though I am one in games), so I need your help.

As you can see my budget is about $20,000. So I request that you give me the most powerful rig configuration that this money can buy. I know this amount can buy the best rig.

I have a few requests though,
- CPU should be from Intel.
- GPU from NVIDIA (I am waiting for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 790).
- RAM and motherboard of gaming grade.
- Motherboard should support 3 GPUs in two-way SLI.
- 3D and FullHD monitor.
- SSD's only (preferably 240GB+ versions).
- Cabinets with air coolers
- CPU coolers (though I wont overclock the CPU).
- A good PSU.

For mouse I have the Logitech G9x, for keyboard I have Razer Blackwidow Ultimate Stealth Edition and a Senheisser HD800 for headphones. All of them are recently purchased and are very good performers. But still if you would recommend something other don't hesitate and feel free to post it.

This should be a rig that should handle all the latest games for the next 15 years or so at the highest settings!

Thanks in advance,
t0rch

That will NEVER happen! Roll back the clock & see what was the best gaming rig in 1998 then ask yourself if it will play the hottest games of today. All you're doing is wasting your money. And I doubt you have $20K to spend.

No home computer is worth spending $10,000 on, let alone 20,000.

✔ Best Answer
Any computer you could build today at any price will be hopelessly obsolete in a lot less than 15 years. Even in 5 years it will probably be low end, suitable only for older games. Most such will have been scrapped years before or kept as a novelty, but totally unsuited for any serious use, let along gaming.

In 15 years any OS of the day needed for gaming will not run on your antique. Even if the basic architecture was compatible, which seems doubtful, drivers would be impossible to obtain. Windows 8 will have been abandoned years before by software developers.

But in 15 years that computer you built today will likely be dead of old age anyway. So everything else is academic.

If you are an avid gamer no computer is likely going to be viable for more than a few years. Computer technology becomes obsolete very quickly. Keep that in mind when you build it.
