Software Workload/Customer Need

This customer was looking for a new powerful computer for golf simulation via a 4K laser DLP projector to a 12′ x 9′ screen.

This build was designed in particular for Uneekor Eye XO and GSPro. Special attention was paid to twin ethernet ports for connection to the motion tracker, and more USB ports for various gaming devices.

Design Rationale

  • The i7-13700K gave the customer a great amount of single-core performance for gaming and multicore performance for heavily-threaded tasks.
  • To ensure the CPU runs at full speed, air cooling with a dual-tower cooler is recommended.
  • The customer wanted a stable motherboard with a good amount of desktop functionality, twin ethernet ports, and lots of  USB ports. We also picked a USB expansion card for extra ports.
  • The customer wanted at least 32GB of RAM and didn’t want last-gen tech.
  • The customer was fine with our default storage setup.
  • Based on the performance needs, we recommended the RTX 4090 24GB.
  • The overall design of the build meant that a 1200W power supply was recommended.
  • We used a bigger mid-tower case to fit the build.
  • We used our highest-end fans to ensure proper airflow and static pressure.

Customer Review

“Last summer (2023) I asked Top Flight to build for me a high end graphics computer for my golf simulator.

They were extremely careful to design the right build, understanding my needs, and even delivered the computer an hour outside of Raleigh. I wanted a high end computer that was both powerful and quiet.

Now that I have been using the computer for several months I can report that it has performed perfectly! In addition, the Top Flight staff have followed up several times to see if I was satisfied or experiencing any problems.

I really did not except such excellent follow-up. I am very satisfied and have not had the slightest hiccup with the computer.

I highly recommend Top Flight for any complex computer build! Five stars out of five stars!”
