Description

Hi everyone, this is actually the third time I've got the chance to build a computer by myself (yay for building computer!). I've learn a lot so far, especially from you guys from PcPartPicker. Without further due here's the breakdown of my component:

Purchased on 2011: Mouse (2nd Hand), Keyboard (2nd Hand), and GorillaPod

Purchased on 2012: Monitor, Case, External DVD Reader, and Speaker

Future Upgrades: [Let's Hope it goes down on Black Friday / CyberMonday deals!] : Hard drives, Sound cards, Headphones, and GameCapture

CPU Cooler: I purchased this through Amazon Warehouse Deals (2nd Hand), but interestingly it is in a great shape (except the box which kind beaten up)

Regrets: PSU: I should've waited a little longer to get Seasonic Platinum Series. Last time I checked (After purchasing the X650) there is a sale on it's Platinum Series. With my current PSU I won't be able to SLI my card, but oh well.

Please feel free to leave your comments, critique and suggestions is greatly appreciated. Thanks and have an awesome thanksgiving break ppl!

*ps: I have not yet install Windows 7 since it is out of stock on my University Bookstore. I'll update it as soon as the Windows Available and Installed. Some of the customs item like the speaker was cheap because my friends back then need money asap. I am using the VGA instead of DVI because I am using it just to check whether the system will boot or not (the DVI slot is reserved for my laptop). But once I have Windows installed I'll definitely use the DVI. (Thanks to GreenReaper, zlogs, Hakumisoso and godhawk for noticing it.)

$2000 build, vga adapter?

 
 
zlogs [1 Build] 4 points 10 months ago

Why is he getting downvoted? Its a serious question, why is he using vga on a 770??

 
 
Hakumisoso [2 Builds] 1 point 10 months ago

true, the monitor supports dvi.

 
 
godshawk 1 point 10 months ago

Maybe he doesn't have a DVI cable. Maybe that's not the exact monitor.

(Yeah, those are kinda weak reasons. S/He spent like $2k, so...)

 
 
Hakumisoso [2 Builds] 1 point 10 months ago

It should come with a dvi cable.

Hi,

The reason I am using the VGA is to check whether the system will boot or not. But once I have the Windows + game installed and running (heh), I'll definitely use the DVI slot. Right now the DVI slot is reserved for my laptop for working on school and other project. Nevertheless thanks for commenting!

 
 
Xaftz [1 Build] -1 points 10 months ago

Yeah... and his monitor even brings a DVI cable with it. Idk why he is using VGA.

I believe he edited the description after GreenReaper pointed it out, hence the "(Thanks to GreenReaper,... for noticing it.)"

canders [6 Builds] 1 point 10 months ago

YourLocalPCNoob [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

The backplate still doesnt help with the GPU sagging?

 
 
iClooly [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

It does help a lot, but then again "just in case" it sag, my gorilla pod will there to save the day! haha

 
 
candy [2 Builds] 1 point 10 months ago

Hakumisoso [2 Builds] 1 point 10 months ago

What is that evga power thingy? seems gimicky

 
 
iClooly [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

Hi,

You can find more information on the EVGA Power Boost through this link: http://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=100-MB-PB01-BR

My friend simply told me that it will provide "extra juice" on the motherboard if you have SLI configuration. But then again I got it for free, my friend have extra lying around. (The retail price is $9.99)

I've updated on the description page the reason why I am using the VGA slot. Btw I think your comment will make a great name tag for those people who hate EVGA, 'Ew'VGA. lololo Nevertheless thanks for commenting!

 
 
SumanIV [1 Build] 1 point 10 months ago

VGA is outdated, get a better monitor when you get the money c:
