    High-End PC Builds take all shapes and sizes.  Sadly, most hardware enthusiasts are strongly budget driven and will often skew their views on performance computer hardware to fit their budget or build preferences.  Sites like PCPartPicker do their best to create compatible builds while allowing visitors to stick within a certain budget.  We find that this approach can often create misleading results and is often reaffirmed by Techutainment channels farming for content.

    Of course, there are other options such as the builds from boutique systems builders like CyberPowerPC, Digital Storm, Alienware and HP Omen.  Of these Digital Storm is the clear winner when it comes to over the top offerings that can sometimes exceed $20,000

    In this episode we take a look at the high-end PC market and find out what kind of system actually costs $20,000 and if the build is actually worth the effort.  Later we check out the latest Extreme Gaming build from PC Gamer and Maximum PC.  Sadly, in both instances the builds have some major issues that could easily be solved if someone was paying attention.
