#amwriting #amediting #wip Second Machine is worrying me now

Finally agreed with Jean to build my own dedicated writing machine from scratch.

I have built machines before although sitting down and soldering them is back in late 70s.

Going for:

Asus LGA 1151 Maximus IX Formula – Intel Z270 ATX DDR4 SDRAM

GTX 1060 GB Rog

Intel Core I7-7700K 4.2 – CPU

Corsair CMK 16Gb DDR4 – Memory

NZXT Kraken x42 – CPU Cooler


2 * WB Blue Hard Disks

Samsung C27F390 LED 27 inch

I have a Vanquish Box and a Corsair CX 600M and 600W should do it but I will smoke corrected.

Estimated cost excluding my time and the stuff I already have is £1700.

I hope to use existing Windows 10 Licenses but budgeting for another £200 and from that I hope to have a purpose build fast machine and I know I need sleep but not in front of the screen waiting for it to do something.
