Description

My gift to myself for graduating the army. The pictures don't include the new CPU fan. Built in August 2011.

Update: Pic of the build two years later with new CPU fan and happier cables.

Thank you! I know... lol. I really need to just go and look at what I need to get in order to make that happen.

Zip ties and a bit of work, possibly an extension for your 8 pin power cable so you can route it past the GPU instead of over it (I have the same problem in my PC) but nice parts!

Okay, they should look at least a little bit better now :)

Alright, so you just need to take all that "bed making training" and do that to your cables. :p

Nice build though. :)

EEWWW Cables... I find it funny how people are recommending more ram though. Especially since when you built this rig 4gb was more than sufficient for pretty much anything. If you upgrade the ram you might consider a new GPU as well. Especially because the whole reason for upgrading the ram would be to get better FPS in current and next gen games when the GPU while still decent is probably your biggest bottleneck for gaming. Food for thought..

Yeah, definitely. My gpu is certainly the only thing that programs and games are utilizing to the fullest at this point in time. That would definitely be the first thing I upgrade.
