    Building a computer is hard work.  We do our best to make the process sound easy but in the end there are a number of decisions to make and everyone will have a different opinion as to what is the best, what has real value and what is pure garbage.  In addition something that might be garbage for one build might actually be the best option for another so, the challenge isn't what you pick but rather picking something that makes sense for your build.

    Smart enthusiasts turn to the trade rags to get a leg up on what is hot right now.  That is how Dennis picked wheels for his truck and how many computer enthusiasts decide which motherboard to buy.

    For years Maximum PC has been a destination for hardware enthusiasts and curious system builders.  For the most part they have good reputation for quality even if their Dream Machine Gaming PC is not designed for gaming but rather built to prove you can spend more money on your computer than on a car.

    In this episode Dennis and Darren discuss the Dream Machine build to determine what makes works, what doesn’t work and what doesn’t make any sense at all.   What may surprise you is that most of this build is simply picking the most expensive part and running with it.
