What do you have to do to get a gaming PC around here?

There’s only one way to get a great gaming PC here at NVIDIA’s office. And there’s only one way to experience 3D games at their best. You’ve got to build your own system – so that’s just what I did.

Tired of shoving elbows with our gamers at NVIDIA, I built my own gaming PC so I could get some play time with the latest builds.

Never wanting to ask “when is it my turn” ever again, I decided to load my system with the latest tech. If I’m gonna build a PC, I might as well do it right, right? 2 GTX 570s – envy that, boys – along with an Intel Core i7, mounted on a Rampage motherboard, 6 gigs of memory, powered by 1200 watts. I’m ready to defend Earth against the wildest aliens and strategize my way through the galaxy.

Check out the video and use it as a quick checklist for what goes in the box. You’d be amazed by what you can pack into a small form factor fragbox.
