Wifes Computer

Wife needed a new gaming computer. This is one I built for her. Originally did not want the cooling hoses to be near the back exhuast fan, but they did not bend very well facing the other direction. Overall I felt pretty good about this build. I am impressed with the case design. Love the filters.

if this is from like very recently you might REALLY want to consider sendthat that 680 back and getting a 770 its cheaper and has more power or hell for that price get 2 1.11Ghz 760's SLI and you'll have over titan level power for about $530

This card was given to me from my brother. I would have went with a cheaper one than this if I was going to spend money on a Graphics card. However I will take your suggestion on the computer I am building for myself.

It's a nice build however I hope you owned that MS7 full already ... that's a huge chunk of the budget which could've gone to some other places

That being said I don't know what games your wife plays/how demanding they are so I'm sure that the 680 runs them outstandingly

Nice build and +1 for having a wife that loves to game with you!

I had the graphics card, OS, and drives previosly before I built this.

RyneSmith [7 Builds] 1 point 14 months ago

Very nice then! I just cringe sometimes when I see people spend that much on an OS but hey if you have it already/honestly need it then ya I have no complaints

I saw that you built this about 6 months ago so the 680 was a great choice although pretty expensive.

Again it's a very nice build and you did a great job with cables on top of that

Your wife should be very happy

All in all very nice. +1

Electrospeed 1 point 14 months ago

I'd say that you should have saved money on the ram (16gb is lots for gaming, dare I say too much?), but all your parts are already pretty good so w/e.

Basically, if I could +2, I would

wish my missus was into gaming :/

Nice build. I love getting stuff for free or re-using it in later builds. Offset cost flow is great.

Regarding getting the wife to game, I just introduced mine to the Game Dev sim on Steam. Now I kinda wish I wouldn't since I haven't seen my gaming computer for the last two weeks...
