This is my first build. I wanted something to game on with room to grow and expand. I pretty much only play Eve Online at the moment and this rig can handle that on max settings with out breaking a sweat.
The build went great with no problems at all. Even things like the H100i install which I thought would be hard went smoothly. Now i'm just learning how I can extract as much power from the rig by tweaking the settings, which is all new to me. This is the first time I've overclocked a PC. Thanks YouTube for showing me how :)
The reason I only used a 128Gb SSD is because I already have 2 x 2TB Samsung Story external hard drives for media storage but I do plan on getting a second SSD and probably another GTX 760 to SLI the rig in the future.
So far I'm very happy with this build. I need to get some nicer looking cable extensions to tidy up the inside a bit but other than that I'd tried to keep it as tidy as I could.
The only other thing I want to purchase for this build is the ROCCAT Ryos MK Pro keyboard when it's released in October.

I have no idea if these scores are any good because I have nothing to compare them to so feel free to let me know in the comments.
Also you should all try Eve Online if you haven't because it's amazing and you won't regret it! For a free 21 day trail of Eve Online go to this link. Then I can see you in space and blow you up :)
