Asus Strix GeForce GTX 1050Ti OC Edition
The GPU has been selected! As you can clearly see from the huge photo above this very text, it is the Asus Strix GeForce GTX 1050Ti OC (Overclocked) Edition!
This was an exciting find for the price point, too. With the current influx of DIY bitcoin miners, the price of GPUs have increased exponentially. In some cases the units are selling for hundreds of dollars over their original MSRP! Although a graphics card is not not the most crucial component in this build, we refused to stuff just any PCIe hunk of hardware into our build. Every piece of gear we have chosen has been carefully selected; through an arduous process of mulling over all of the available options, evaluating our needs, and comparing price to performance for every unit.
There honestly isn't a laundry list of reasons why this particular card was selected. It essentially boiled down to a handful of reasons.
  1. It's Quiet
  2. It's Powerful
  3. It's Affordable
  4. It's Pretty!
It's that simple. Our rig is geared more towards video, photo, and music editing. We're not looking to build a gaming PC here, this is gonna be our certified workhorse! It's gonna out perform any computer in a 7 mile radius, and look sexy as hell doing it! Cicada Mind is kinda like that hot girl at work that does her job really well. All you can think is: "I wonder what other jobs she can do well..."
We have some aesthetic surprises in store as well. Some added touches have been included to give this build the over the top feel it deserves. One look and it will be obvious how dominate Cicada Mind will be! Be sure to check those out in future updates.
