Nice, but overkill for a fapping station >_>

I think you got good parts there...

Missing a key component for the fapping part.

You have a lot of good parts!

However, I would certainly not waste money on 2-3 GTX770's. Especially at release.
Your monitors support 1080p, so you really couldn't make use of all that muscle.
What games will you be playing?
If you won't be playing a lot, try a GTX660 2GB or an AMD 7850 2GB to save some money and still have a great card!

Also, if it's a fapstation, I'd get 16gb of ram instead, something like this:
Newegg.ca - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL10D-16GBXL

Why? Multiple instances of browsers with hundreds of tabs each take a lot of memory...

For once, finally someone states their TRUE intent!

Note the 3 monitors, folks. It's a surround gamer / fap-station. He'll need the GPU muscle for all those pixels.

is that tri-Sli?

If so you might want to bump the PSU a lil bit.

Considering the budget I'd bump the SSD to 256GB if you can.. 128GB fills fast if you plan putting games on it.

Sorry guys, I copied 3 of those GPUs Im only going to be running 1. Im hoping its enough for some smooth fappi...err gaming...

Damn dude triple 24" monitor fap station? I can fit 6 vids at once on my 21.5" that's 18 videos at once!!!! FAP OVERLOAD!


Nice lookin build. I know there isn't much difference but why not go 1150 socket?
