    That is an incredible spec PC - I had a look at some benchmarks of the Threadripper 2990WX and it's approximately 330% faster than my current CPU (theoretically). The M.2. and RX Vega 64 put this in a different generation to what I'm running at the moment, so I'd love a PC like this :).

    You are a man of many words @EvanDavis :lol::lol::lol:

    An it ain't the best chip for gaming so that is another black mark against using it. :lol:

    Not really. Why spend $3,000+ on a PC that really isn't going to make much difference to my gamin experience nest to my own PC

    You would need a shed load more than just the one to mine any bitcoin. That one alone would take a couple of years before you got your money back.

    If you can't afford it. Don't buy it!

    Never owned a credit card. Always saved for the things I want!

    Yea that is good advice, if I save for it it'll just take a while before I get it. I want it right away so I have to weigh the pros and cons. I might just hold out until I have the money to buy it no problem :D
