    GA-Z77X-UP5-TH with Thunderbolt display 3.5ghz i7 16gb RAM Corsair Force GT SSD (similar specs as a top tier 2012 iMac)

    Built it a year ago and it has been used mostly as a file server mostly because of the upkeep required. It's fast and cheap but slightly less reliable than throwing down money on the real thing. It's a fun hobby and worth it performance-wise, but I wouldn't trust it as my main workstation without a backup computer. I'm content using a 13" Air with my TB display.
