Good to hear from you @JMac! Looks good to me. How much is this going to run you? Have you tried out PCPartPicker?

Thanks Tarun, The PC is going to cost me quite a hefty amount, 

I have not heard of PCPartPicker, but looks interesting - I am in the United Kingdom :P So might not work for me!

But it is very interesting seeing what other people have created using the site :)

Do you happen to have comments on this monitor Acer Predator XB281HK 28" 4K2K G-Sync Monitor


You might even have your own suggestion?

1ms response time? Wow, that looks good to me. 4K support too.

I truthfully wouldn't know where to start. Things have been busy at my house for the past year pretty much.

I agree @JMac and I've been trying. Things have been rough the past year for sure. Hopefully I can get this place back up and running, plus get AMT2 going. :)
