Design Rationale

  • The i7-6800K gave the customer a good amount of single-core performance for gaming, and multicore performance for heavily-threaded tasks.

  • The customer wanted at least 32GB of RAM, with RGB for visual appeal.
  • The customer chose a 500GB NVME and 4TB HDD.
  • For solid 1440p gaming performance, we recommended the GTX 1070.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 850W power supply was recommended.
  • The customer chose a specific case for airflow and visual appeal.
  • The customer chose specific fans for airflow and visual appeal.

Customer Review

“I have wanted to build a super gaming computer for my daughter for a while, however every time I started to look into the project I was overwhelmed with all of the new technology and decisions on how to build it.

I am super OCD and everything I do has to be methodical and thought-out. This presents a problem when trying to find someone to help you, as most businesses now have lost the ability to provide that level of service, and willingness to go beyond customers’ expectations.

I found Top Flight Computers and decided to reach out to discuss my vision. My expectations were low, as I have tried other local businesses and only ever ended up back at square one.

To my surprise, Chris contacted me back quickly, and we discussed my vision. Chris was very pleasant, and never tried to steer me in any direction other than what I had decided to build. He provided me with the knowledge I needed to make the decision to start the build.

Once the build was commissioned, Chris took on the build as if it was his own. I was amazed at what he created in the allotted timeframe he had to get the project completed. Chris exceeded every expectation I had, and created one of the finest computers I have ever owned.

Throughout this process with Chris, I realized he is going to be very successful building computers with his attention to detail and his ability to understand all of the ever-changing new technologies.

The computer Chris built for me is the Stormtrooper Rampage, look it up on his site, it’s absolutely amazing!”
