This is my first build that I have posted on here and I know that my cable management is kinda iffy, but I tried my best. Used mostly for intense gaming and some video editing.
The third picture in the album is what happens when your CPU isnt delivered on time.
I have not had time to play any games because I literally just finished this build tonight. I will post benchmarks this weekend.
CPU - I chose the 3570k because it is, in my opinion the best CPU for the price.
CPU Cooler - The silverstone Argon series is exactly like the CM evo 212 but just a different color and a few dollars cheaper so yeah.
Motherboard - The MSI Z77A-G41 was just the MOBO I decided to pick, no special reason, although I do like the clickable bios and the Power LED, HDD LED, Power Switch, and Reset switch doodle mabobs included. They are little pin things that make the Front pannel plugs easy to install.
RAM - CORSAIR BANDWAGON, GET ON IT!!!! No lol but I dont need 2400Mhz memory just to play games and do a small ammount of video editing.
HDD - Just a standard 2tb drive for mass storage (Planning on getting an SSD in the near future for operating system)
GPU!!!!! - My favorite thing about this build is the PowerColor 7990. And Oh My Gosh is it a Beast! Over 12 inches long and 3 PCI-E in width this card is going to rock any game you can throw at it. Coupled with 16gb of ram and the 3570k is going to be great.
Case - I just loved the look of the CM Storm Stryker so I was like what the hay and bought it :P
PSU - Needed at least an 850 watt for the 7990 and I know its not modular but it was good for the price.
Optical drive - C'mon people its the 21st century, the digital age lol. Slapped a 16 dollar dvd drive on a $2000 computer only to install windows :P
