This is my Gaming Rig which I am building / upgrading from old components and buying new ones along the way. It is far from complete, and I will continue to build on it over the next couple of months.
I am not trying to get the best of the best, instead a build with price vs performance at heart. Also, I am trying to keep the build pretty silent under normal day use, but with the power to supply sufficient airflow / cooling when it is needed.
3DMark Scores are based on the latest 3dMark software and are : Entry = Ice Storm (Default Test), Performance = Cloud Gate (Default Test), Xtreme = Fire Strike (Default Test)
