Nice topic :)

There's lots of awesome rigs in this forum, and some of them are truly out of this world both in terms of build quality, raw power and sheer originality, IMHO it would be nearly impossible to pick just one rig from all the amazing builds at TPU.

To me, the best PC would be... every single one of them :p People here have put a lot of effort in building their systems and sharing them with our community, so every system here deserves to be the best to whoever built it and uses it for gaming, folding, watching porn or whatever :laugh:

Nothing beats sharing our passion for fast hardware, gaming, and helping other people out with their hardware questions and that's what makes TPU great :toast:

Just my two cents :rockout:
you got my thanks on watching porn... the EXACT reason i bought a $549 video card.. gotta get them frames rates up... along with other things

Does anyone know anyone on the forums that is known for building with the most overly reviewed parts and going crazy with it, like for example 1500watt psu 4x680/hd7970? 2x xeons or 3960x and like 64gb quad channel ddr3-2800 ram lol
Every forum will have some sort of "elite" build by a person or group.

To find the very best builds, you don't have to look any further than Million Dollar PC:
http://www.million-dollar-pc.com/

It's great that some people can afford to build crazy rigs with tons of money invested, but that doesn't have any comparison to some of the builds MDPC has. Heck, there are builds on MDPC that are obviously low cost (part wise), but the attention to detail and ideas some of these people come up with is just incredible.

Example: Fits at one point had one of the best rigs (performance wise) on TPUs entire forum, but thats ONLY because he spent a crap ton of money to get the very best parts. Then, you compare his build to something like a Murderbox build, and then all the sudden it isn't so elite/awesome anymore. Nothing against fits' SR2 build, but a Murderbox is just in a league of its own.

I'd like to say that my i5_alive rig was the best rig I ever built, because of how much thought and planning went into it. It was built with a certain budget and I stayed well under that budget, but still built a very great looking/functioning machine. That build was definitely "up there" in quality IMO.

i5_alive - Built in Feb 2010

As for my current rig, I may have one of the better air cooled/quiet 3930K rigs, but thats only because I bought a bunch of Noctua fans. :D
Eventually I'll post pictures, if I can find the dang time to.

It's great because it does the job...

I do, obviously.
It was the best one in the store. When I bought it, I had demanded for the best that was available.
Just for you to see how awesome this computer is, a year and a half ago, I commented that my hard drive was a bit slow. My computer took this into account and proceeded to damage the HDD, by insulting it. The HDD started to whine. By that time was advised by software to backup all of my stuff. Took the computer to the store, since it was still under warranty and presto! New faster, quiter HDD.
But I was still not satisfied, so I bought a faster HDD. It is now as fast as a desktop with a regular HDD.
It doesn't end there, if I manage to find another SATA data/power connector for my laptop I will be able to install an SSD. It will be one of the very, very, very few 15.4'' laptops to have 2 storage devices in this planet.
It also runs all my games fluently, if I configure the graphics options correctly and never bitches about my 30-odd opened FF tabs plus a whole lot of other software running simultaneously.
