One of the fastest and most tricked out PCs ever built is up for auction on eBay
One of the fastest, most tricked out PCs ever built has just been put up for auction on eBay. With a one of a kind NVIDIA themed paint job created by Smooth Creations, the system features two watercooled GeForce GTX 295 graphics cards in SLI, NVIDIA 3D Vision Glasses and Samsung 2233RZ 3D Vision Ready Display, an Intel Core i7 975 Extreme Edition CPU, 12GB of Crucial Ballistix DDR3 Memory, an ASUS Rampage II Gene X58 Motherboard, two 256GB Crucial SSD Hard Drives in Raid 0, two 1TB Western Digital Caviar Black Hard Drives, and more.
The system was hand built by world renowned case modder Richard “Darth Beavis” Surroz, and is valued at over $10,000. 100% of the proceeds from the auction are going directly to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. All of the services and parts used to create the system were donated by the 11 main sponsors of the project.
NVIDIA employee (and former hardware editor) Paul Jastrzebski put together this project as a way to raise money for blood cancer research after a close friend of his was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a devastating blood cancer.
Every company Paul mentioned the project to enthusiastically donated some of their best PC components or their unique services – and after only a few weeks, one of the fastest and coolest looking PCs ever built was created.
The system is up for auction on eBay at the following address:
