Description

I built this over the summer. I'm pretty happy with the build. Everything went together smoothly. I probably would have gone with a cheaper motherboard as this one is overpriced. (Should of done more research.) The optical drive, two HDD's and Windows were free from work. A stable overclock to 4.3ghz. BF3 and Arma 2 dont go passed 65deg on the 670 FTW, still working on the overclock. I will probably grab another FTW down the road for SLI. The case is huge with a lot of airflow. Extra Bitfenix fan added to bottom. Just need to get a better monitor and maybe another 670 down the road. I'll edit the prices later and give a closer estimate to what I spent, as some of the equipment was bought from retail but on the tax holiday.

Update 5/1/13: SLI w/backplates Asus VG248QE 144hz 3d monitor

U should've gone with a mechanical keyboard for the price of that logitech keyboard. Hows the g500 mouse? I was thinking about getting the m500 since i don't like using the side buttons on mice. I really like the sabertooth mobo , very sharp and clean looking

Thanks! I really like the g500. I find having the side buttons useful for a few games, and they're placed right above where your thumb rests, in case your worried about accidently hitting them.

Why 5400 RPM speed for the 1TB hard drive, was it recycled or is the 500GB and SSD covering the files that need speed.

Exactly, both HDD's were recycled from work. SSD is just for OS. I will probably pick up a larger SSD around Black Friday, dedicated to games.
