Description

The new asus line of Motherboards is where I started and I was very impressed by their technology and how well it makes customizing your machine. I was on edge with getting the Corsair cooler but I was able to snag one with a coupon at $81 which is about 40 more than the best air cooler I was going to find. Plus its going to be useful when over clocking the PC. I went only with 16GB of memory at this point as studies show that their really isn't a huge increase in performance from 16 to 32 unless you have a processor to handle the speed. I went with the best 17 processor for the money. I got this price matched from a competitor through best buy with a 10 % coupon from them to lower the cost even more. I went with two 120 ssd instead of just on 240 ssd as I raid 0 the cards together for speed. Same thing the the WD black drives though this is going to be for all my other items: video, photos, documents. I already have a 5 tb external back up drive so as long as you back you should be fine. I spent a lot time looking around at cases. I want something that was expandable which organized and quite. I believe the fractal design case has been right on point there. EVGA has been around for awhile and their g2 series has a 10 year warranty. Needless to say it will be good for awhile. The LG bluray drive is a bit noise however. Thinking of changing it out but not sure yet. I didn't trust windows 8 to be compatible with all of my software programs and devices so I settled for Windows 7 pro as I am looking at 32 Gb of memory one day. The asus wireless I just got.... though I can't imagine those speeds until until I upgrade my wireless modem and even then Comcast doesn't offer those speeds yet.

Where did you buy a GTX 770 for that price?

I'm assuming he got it used or got a deal from someone else, the only way to get that specific model is through bestbuy or call and order straight from NVIDIA.

Using the PSU to pull out air from the core? It's gold rated...and I need more exhaust to pull air out

I don't think the psu fan is an intake fan. I could be wrong but I'm fairly certain the fan is an exhaust.

Why windows 7?

Some editing photo and video apps are still better optimized for windows 7. I have noticed this from personally using Adobe CC.

Compatibility issues still exist.... Was really considering window 8 but I just hate the point that it didn't come with media center or the ability to raid your system as well. I also cracked a lot of programs and cracks don't work as we'll in window 8. Note performance is better in window 8 but marginal.. My computer boots in 13 seconds.

Windows 8 does suck, that's why they made 8.1. (which is much better)

Windows 8.1 with Classic Shell is literally a straight upgrade from Windows 7.

No one "prefers" Windows 7. It's either you use Windows 8.1 because it's superior or you just hate it because Windows 8 was ****. And judging by his description it looks like he bought it.
