Guy Builds $30,000 Computer


Ever Wanted To Build a $30,000 Computer? Because This Guy Did It!

What is your dream computer? I bet it’s nothing like the computer that Linustech built that cost a whopping $30,000 USD. Comprised of seven individual systems housed in one giant case it is an entire LAN Party contained in one giant box.

In all honesty if you wanted to build a single PC comprised of most of the parts that Linustech used it wouldn’t cost the down payment on a house.  Each individual system is powered by an Intel Xenon Processor – which is a server class processor most game players wouldn’t put into their rig, a top end AMD Nano Fury Graphics Card and a staggering 32GB of DDR 4 ram.

This video was sponsored by Kingston and the monster computer will be on display at their booth at CES later this month.

Alongside his list of parts Linus Tech also posted a 15 minute video that gives an excellent tour of this absolutely amazing build.
