Any updates that need to be done will probably be done closer to the full release of Star Citizen. As of right, I don't really do any heavy gaming on it. Every time I upgrade my PC I get super excited about all of it's potential and then I end up playing 2D side scrollers on steam or watching a bunch of Netflix. :)

There's an old thread from before there was a hardware forum but it hasn't been used in a while: http://forums.starcitizenaa.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=234

Here's my current parts list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Tt4ZCJ.
Motherboard: ASUS Rampage V Extreme
Graphics card: EVGA 780Ti Superclocked
Psu: Rosewill Hercules 1600
Cpu: Intel Core i7 5960X 3.0GHz OC'd to 4.0 GHz
Internal Hard drives: Crucial M550 500GB SSD, plus a seagate 1.5TB HDD and a Patriot 120GB SSD
External Hard Drives: 1 each Western digital My Book 1TB, Accomodata 2TB, Seagate 3TB, and Seagate 5TB hard drives
Total Hard Drive Space: ~13TB
Ram: 4x Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB DDR4-2400 32GB total
Case: Thermaltake Level 10 GT
Cooling: Corsair H110i Cpu cooler
Monitors: 3x Asus 28" 3840 x 2160 1ms monitors with mounting stand
Extras: NZXT internal USB expander.

Currenly saving up to get a Titan X to replace the 780TI with a few more to add into SLI coming afterwards as I get the money.

I've also got MY PS3 and PS4 running through a HDMI switcher to one of the secondary inputs for the right monitor so I can switch over to either of those and still have 2 screens for the computer, a Saitek X52 HOTAS waiting for me to find a way to rig up stands since I don't have space on the desk (and they'd be uncomfortably high anyway), and a TrackIR 4 pro that I haven't gotten set up yet.

And a few images of my set up:

Edited to add reviews of everything I know the exact model of; some of my old stuff I don't have records of exactly what it is; couldn't find any reviews on the monitors so I linked the Asus video of it.

If I lived in the US I'd try to put dibs on the 780, but posting it to the UK would cost too much. :D

Hopefully the Titan X hydro copper is still in stock at Newegg on Monday; I just tried to pick one up but I'm caring enough balance on my Newegg preferred account that I need the payment I sent in to clear first but they don't process anything on weekends.

Also anyone have experience watercooling? I'm going with the hydro copper rather than the hybrid AIO cause I have nowhere to mount the fan and radiator internally but I've never done anything more that install an AIO cooler for my CPU before. I'm currently looking at getting this kit for now and upgrading to a better solution when I can.

I have experience in water cooling.
You will be needing at least a 240MM rad to cool a high end CPU and a high end GPU on the same loop.

I was planning on leaving the CPU on the Hi110 for now till I got the other Titans down the line and could research and plan out the final water loop.

I'm guessing the 120mm fan and radiator would be sufficient for a each titan since that's what's built into the hybrid model that comes with it integrated right? I suppose it wouldn't hurt to get the next kit up from the one I linked that has a a 3x120mm radiator; it's only another $20 or so.

Yes a 120 would be adequate per single GPU

What you could always do is get a small radbox and just run tube from the radbox to the cards.
