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.
