Description

This is my very 1st build ever made I bought the parts on boxing day with my Christmas money and I sold Henry to add to my budget.

So 1st thing people are going to say "Why 16gb ram" My story is like this..... In a land far far away called Amazon.ca they mislabeled the MSI 7870 for GT630 so I bought 2 of the cards cause the price is only $71 ea.

On boxing day I went to get all my parts and everything, I was planning to build it on the next day. So while I was on my laptop I noticed I had a mail, It was from Amazon! I was really excited because it might be the tracking number for the cards but no. The email said.

    > Hello from Amazon.ca.

We're sorry to report we won't be able to obtain the following item from your order:

We've cancelled this item from your order.

Your order is now closed.

So I was like to myself you amazon ******* I already bought the ram because I was thinking I saved so much money on the graphics card so why not pickup a 16gb memory card and maybe a SSD if I have enough.

With the money that amazon gave back to me I figured out that Ill just buy a water cooler and overclock my system and Ill just get the graphics card later on.

Well that sounds like a not-fun story. Good build otherwise, though.

That is a very stupid Idea, why would you get 16 gigs of RAM when you could have easily chosen another GPU? You will have no need to use your water cooler as you have no GPU therefore no point in OCing

I bought the ram before amazon emailed me that they wont be able to ship the cards.
