But slimmed down to one rig.

Def one of my goals. Do you think a single GTX1080 can handle 3 display's or a SLI overkill?

Agreed. In process of building PC to replace 27" iMac.

Any recommendations?

Looks like a reasonable build. I would try to get the I7 cheaper or with a mobo combo since you aren't doing any fancy over clocking or SLI

Thanks, I'll look into that. Have to find subs for CPU cooler and power supply; they seem to be sold out.

Not real a monster rig, but satisfy my requirements for flightsims and street race. Both gears are from TM (except rudder pedals), wheel not shown.

I build a new rig about 2-3 years. Here's my latest creation from this past April, with the only new parts being a pair of GTX 1080s added last month.

i7 6700k over clocked to 4.8ghz
Gigabyte G1 motherboard (the mack daddy one)
32GB DDR4
Samsung M2 SSDs
Sli GTX 1080s
Liquid cooling on CPU and board (EK extreme cooling kit with 3 row rad)
Corsair Obsidian 700D case
Acer X34 Predator Monitor, 3440x1440

I run BF4 at 3440x1440, ultra everything and 180% res scaling and get a solid 85-90 fps. It's absolutely incredible. I can also run GTA V with max everything at 3440x1440, and 150% scaling and achieve a nice 75-80fps.

What a system.

New build im working on. First custom liquid cooling loop. I moved over my ASROCK Z170 and 3570k. Sold my GPUs. Was running 2 R9 280x's for my 4k setup. Was going to order 2 GTX 1080s but now waiting until Jan for a GTX1080ti. I want to make sure I get exactly what I want the first time since water blocks are not cheap.

Anyone here from OCN?

nice specs. how's the temps holding on the Corsair H110i GTX. Are you overclocked? I'm contemplating whether to bite the bullet on the 1080 now or wait for the 1080ti.

Thanks

CPU hardly gets above room temp. Not overclocking it at the moment (no need) but I have and it runs about 5-7deg hotter at 4.5GHz.

I want a 1080 but I just can't justify the ROI at the moment - the 980 is doing just fine. Will see what happens to the prices if/when the ti comes out...

I hear ya. My 980m is doing fine but my 17 in laptop screen isn't cutting it no more. Trying to build a monster desktop rig soon. When they announce the 1080Ti and price drops on the 1080, might be worth wild to do a SLI setup.
