A few months ago my son Jahleal (11) and I were looking at the next-gen consoles and the games that were going to be released for them. I didn't see anything that would constitute paying $400-500 dollars for consoles that had no games and were mostly going to sit on my entertainment center collecting dust. Also I was looking into getting a nice PC for for my home.
Loving to build things and tinker, hack and root things, I decided to get a father & son project going and build a gaming PC. I asked a few friends who have/ had gaming pc's where to start my research. After a few months of Tomshardware, Newegg, Youtube and finally PC Part Picker. We went to work and came up with this build.
I went with a great priced but very powerful CPU that I can use for a multitude of things (home computing, games), a great GPU and an overclocking, mid-ranged, manly MOBO with a case with a huge window that will make you smack yo mama, to show it all off. Added some custom fans and sleeves with some LED's to add that last touch of fair.
and here we have it ...
