Do plan on getting VR, not sure which yet. Was part of the reason for the build.

Got the ram dirt cheap, was only going to get 16gb on 2 sticks. The price was right got 4, more for the look lol.

SSD was cheap too, I actually bought it for my laptop and had it kicking around. I was originally planning a 1tb SSD and running the HDD's in raid 1. Likely I'll go bigger on the SSD in the future. The HDD's in raid 0 are pretty fast. No real complaints about load times off them.

There will be more changes to come. Still not sure if I'm going to keep 2 desktops like I have now or move everything over to this one.
Time will tell. Pretty happy so far. At 1080p streaming to my alpha I can run all my games ultra. At 3440x1440 I only got to turn them down a bit.

Sony 75" X940D, 7.1 Klipsch, Onkyo TX-NR656, Xbox One/360, Nvidia Shield Alienware Alpha, Arris Gateway, 42" Samsung
