Note: finished around 3 weeks ago but didn't upload because of school.
Case, Fans, HDD and SSD were purchased from Scoptec
PSU was purchased from PLE Computers
CPU. Motherboard, CPU Cooler, RAM, Windows and Optical drive were purchased at PCCaseGear
(Note:) Scorptec was best in terms of service and speed, while Scoptec took 2 days to get here, PCCaseGear took 4 days and PLE took about a week.
I was pretty nervous about breaking stuff so i worked pretty slow. Took me around 2 days to build it with cable management help from my dad.
Its main use is gaming along with normal computer stuff like music and internet stuff.
CPU: went with Haswell because its the newer generation and it allowed me to get a better motherboar
Currently Over clocked to 3.8ghz. i'm kinda scared to go higher, gonna test 4.2ghz sometime soon
VERY happy with case, looks super cool.
(Note:) the monitor in the list has got built in speakers, mine doesn't
I already had speakers and my cousin was kind and gave me his old headset.
Tried my best to colour coordinate everything to black and blue to match the case. Very happy with the whole thing.
The total cost was around $2050 when i got it because i had store credit.
Going to run 3DMark 11 soon, ill put in the results.
