I started this build in March of 2015 with a AMD 7850k, R9 270x, 8GB of 2133 Ares memory, a zalman air cooler and a 1TB HDD. After my friend's dog marked the gpu vent on my case almost ruining my 270x (saved by alcohol, lots of alcohol.) and a sale price on the 4790k from micro center I started on the evolution of the Orangebox into the little orange beast it is now.
On a side note some of the prices here are so low because I am an employee in the remarketing department of an IT solutions company. It definitely has its perks. :)
Besides the hard drives and monitor every other component was brand new so It just goes to show what some hardcore bargain shopping can do.
TL;DR Orange Box ----> Orange Beast
(Edit:) - My average benchmark score from Userbenchmark: http://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/653311
Pretty satisfied with the results, confused on RAM speeds though. Still trying to find the best ratio for it.
