  1. This is a good point if all you want to do with your PC is play SC in the PU. I kind of agree with you on this but mostly I do not agree. You can spend your lifetime waiting for the next great thing, price drops, etc... Instead of saying hey I will wait until such and such happens, why not build a PC that has a great motherboard, awesome processor, strong power supply, and a very decent graphics card. This is exactly what I decided to do and I'm enjoying the benefits of it. Could I have saved money if I waited? The answer is absolutely. I'm glad I didn't wait because I have been enjoying many games in the meantime. So why not get say a nice GTX 780 now and then we the major price drop happens later just add another in SLI? Why not get a great motherboard, i-7 4770-k, and 2 8Gb sticks of fast RAM? You can add 2 more sticks of RAM in it and be running 32 GB if ever the need should arise. You can add liquid cooling and overclock the processor later if you ever need to. All the while you're enjoying 1080p or higher graphics on the most demanding games and with all of the settings maxed out and extremely high frame rates. If you build your pc wisely it will be cost-effective to do it now and enjoy it now instead of waiting. Sure you can just get a mechanical HD now then buy that solid state later on when you have the extra cash. Just don't skip on the most important components like motherboard, processor, and power supply, or you will be wasting your money by having to replace them later. I highly recommend a Z87-deluxe motherboard or similiar, i7-4770k or i5 k version, and quality power supply to have great gaming now and future proof your quite some time to come.

    I really think you're on to something here. Like the other guys said, just be aware that a lot of use a tight grip and inadvertent button pressing could be an issue. Now how are you going to use aluminum and keep the price reasonable? I love aluminum but it is pricey. Also the 360 style analog stick, does it click too? That would be a great button to set for a zoom, change of 1st person/3rd person view, or toggle thruster controls.

    GeneralSwift's PC build

    i7-4770-k 4-core Processor Asus Z87-Deluxe Motherboard Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Graphics Card Corsair Vengeance Pro 2133 Mhz 8GB x 2 Samsung 840 Pro 256 GB SSD Seasonic 1000-Watt Platinum Full-Modular Power Supply Fractal Designs R4 Titanium Case with 6 case fans Asus VG248QE 144 Hz 3D Using StrobeLight by ToastyX Mod Plantronics GameCom 780 Headset (good 7.1 and excellent mic) Logitech G700s Mouse wireless/wired rechargeable (love this mouse) SteelSeries Apex Gaming Backlit Keyboard (it's mushy but it looks nice and works great) I do realize the power supply is overkill and I could have saved money on some of the parts. I built this PC with the future in mind. I plan to buy another identical SSD to run in Raid 0, double my RAM to 32 GB, get another GTX 780 to run in SLI, and add water cooling. I also want a good mechanical keyboard but hey, I can run any game with all settings maxed at 144 frames per second so I'm all good for now until I see some significant price drops.
