Description

Started to upgrade my pc in 2012 and pretty much ended building up a new one. Recycled some parts, so there is a price differential from what is shown and what I actually paid.

Started off with a COSMOS 1000, an amd 1090t cpu, gigabyte mobo, radeon hd-6850 gfx card, a samsung blu-ray drive, 8 Gb g.skill ram (1333), corsair hx850, and 1.5 Tb seagate HDD.

Upgraded the mobo, cpu, cpu cooler, and installed extra SDD (now my boot drive) & another HDD in the first quarter of 2012

upgraded gfx card, & ram in the summer of 2012

upgraded the computer case this xmas,

recycled my PSU and replaced my cd-drive (put the blu ray player in another build) with one i had lying around

Blazed through just about every game, and I'm currently saving up to pair it with another gtx 670. Case was really good for the price and features (HEAVY CASE).

Also added a pic of my other builds just cause :) I'll post some benchmarks soon.

There is a spot for 3dmark results when you enter information about the build. LOVE that case, considering one for myself.

Appreciate it. Just started using this website so I'm still getting used to it. THe case was a dream for the price. All the materials on the case are sturdy (always hate flimsy side panels) and nothing on this case feels cheap.

Nice build! Just, why a 3770K? Also, you could have saved $15 on that disc drive.

Thanks! Picked up the 3770K simply cause I had the spare cash lying around at the time and wanted the additional threads to "future" proof it a little more. I actually had that cd-drive lying around from another build. Included it so the parts accurately reflect my system.

Do you know of any silent fans that push a good amount of air, & match my color scheme? (Understand there's no window but I can't help wanting to make everything correspond.)

Understandable. I would go with some Corsair AF 120's. They seem to match your scheme.
