There's about 30 inches of space. Sorry 'bout the wait.

The price though is ridiculously prohibitive.

When will HD virtual memory get to be as fast as DDR memory :P

beautiful great pc! the next thing you should focus on i think is the gpu. i got the 970 too but soon it wont serve us well  :D
other than that, all of the rig is superb. as a one with 1TB of ssd i can say that switching to ssd from HDD changed my gaming-computering life, so much smoother and faster, you will enjoy it alot! 

Wow, imagine if the 970 isn't enough to run SE, that will make SE probably the most complex "game" out there.

Digging the mouse pad and dual monitors.  Would you recommend having more than 1 monitor?  What sort of performance hit do you take from that?

I HIGHLY recommend it. The quality of life improvement makes it extremely worthwhile. Put your chat windows on one monitor while you browse the web on the other, or use SE, etc.

As for performance impact, I haven't benchmarked it, but it seems to be small. The performance I get in games is about what I would expect from my card on a single monitor. The overhead for just having your desktop extended is minimal I think. If you want to game on multiple monitors, that's another story.

Some specs and pricing for a couple of AMD's Threadripper processors.



Long story short, Intel is in serious trouble in the super-high-end desktop and datacenter markets.
