New Desktop

I can be harsh on a desktop computer.  I need it to be beefy since I’m often running MANY different apps, including VMWare virtualization products, and 10-15 Google Chrome tabs.  After building an ESXi Shuttle server, I really like Shuttle.  Cool, quiet, small and light.  They can easily handle an i7 with 16+gigs of ram

So for my desktop, I went back to that, and built the following i7 with 16 gigs of ram, and an SSD.

At a later time, I’ll upgrade the video card (install one).  I’m currently liking the new Nvidia GTX 960, but have to wait for them to go on Shuttle’s compatibility list first, then I’ll also have to upgrade the power supply.
