Description

Originally built in March 2011 for a new gaming rig, primarily for WoW and video making. Machine ran great after the only issue really being with the video card having x3 RMA's!!

Was the daily driver for about 3 years, then in November 2014 upgraded the RAM and added the 4TB's for a raid 5 setup and used the machine mainly as a remote media server due to how much traveling I was doing.

Part list shows original and upgraded parts through the years. Final setup had the Samsung as boot SSD, the x4 4TB's in raid 5, and the x2 1TB's as standalone storage drives.

++This machine has been retired and migrated into a new media server here++

I really like the look of the case with the blue led fan. Nice looking machine that would pack a punch if you have a 660 ti instead of a 560 ti.

You could have gotten a 2GB 7850 for less than that 560 ti. Price vs performance.

Ant stop laughing at how you ignored the benchmarks for cpus, mobos, gpus and such. Price vs performance, id go with an i5 any day.
